For information on faculty health insurance, please see Human Resources. One should be familiar with the following student health services. Such information can prove to be both relevant and helpful.

HEALTH CENTER
The Baruch College Health Care Center is located at 138 East 26th Street, Main Floor. The center is committed to providing consistent, high quality health services to Baruch students in a culturally sensitive and confidential environment. It provides students with a full range of clinical health services, including initial diagnosis and treatment for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries. When necessary, referrals will be made. There is always a Nurse Practitioner or Doctor at the Health Center during all regular and extended hours.

Services offered include primary care services such as cold/cough/flu relief, dealing with sprains, strains, vaccinations, STI/HIV testing, gynecological care and physical exams. Additionally, packaged services are available at a discounted price for students. Extensive information about the Health Center, including health insurance, resources, and FAQs can be found here on their home page.

The Health Center distributes free medications for basic aches and pains, cough/cold, flu and allergies. More information about pricing is available by calling Health Services at: 646-312-2040.

COUNSELING CENTER
Students are welcomed to talk to the Nurse Practitioner if they suspect their physical illness is stress related, but are highly encouraged to visit the Baruch Counseling Center, which offers individual and group counseling and psychotherapy to the Baruch community. The Center is staffed with experienced licensed psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and supervised pre-doctoral graduate students, who not only work toward reducing the interference of everyday stress on goals and treating more serious conditions, but who do so with a respect for multicultural issues. The Counseling Center is devoted to helping students succeed. The Counseling Center is one of several units within the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management at Baruch College and is conveniently housed in the same building as the Health Center (for specific address see below). All services are confidential and free of charge.

A complete staff listing can be found here. Additionally, answers to frequently asked questions are available for information about counseling itself as well as the Counseling Center.
