Every year, over fifteen thousand students converge on Duke from all over the world. As they are being exposed to all of these great new people, ideas, cultures, experiences, and perspectives, they are also being exposed to new strains of "crud". Throw in a lack of sleep, some stress, and the fear of missing out on any of the million exciting new opportunities that Duke offers, and voila – you’ve got what the students affectionately refer to as the Duke Plague.
That's where Student Health comes in. We are fully integrated into the Duke Medical System but we are much more than just a medical clinic that happens to be located on campus. We specialize in managing the unique health care challenges that college students – and their parents! - face.
