Geisinger Student Health Services (SHS)

Providing students with health, wellness and counseling services

Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine's Student Health Services (SHS) aims to support the educational experience of students and minimize health-related barriers to learning by providing high-quality health services and health education and to guide students toward a personal commitment to wellness and self-care that will lay the foundation for a healthy life and will assist them to become self-directed and well-informed active consumers of healthcare, as well as “model” patients in the community.

Check out our newsletters for the latest information about our services and upcoming events.


Student records are kept strictly confidential. Information cannot be released to anyone – including family, faculty or administration – without the written consent of the student.

Note: Certain public health diseases must be reported to the Department of Health by law.

Provision of sensitive health services to Geisinger Commonwealth students

The faculty and staff of Geisinger Commonwealth understand that many health and psychological/psychiatric issues confronting Geisinger Commonwealth students may be of a sensitive nature and that a professional patient relationship between Geisinger Commonwealth faculty and students would be inconsistent with a teacher-student relationship.

Should a Geisinger Commonwealth faculty member provide health services of a sensitive nature to a Geisinger Commonwealth student, the faculty member will have no involvement in the academic evaluation or promotion of the student receiving those services.
