Wheelock College Student Health Services is operated in conjunction with Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates. Harvard Vanguard, affiliated with Harvard Medical School, is a nonprofit, multi-specialty medical group practice located a short walk from the Wheelock campus.
Harvard Vanguard offers numerous primary care medical services. Most of these services are provided to all Wheelock Undergraduate and resident Graduate students at no charge. For more information on medical services available to students and what services are covered by Wheelock, please visit the Harvard Vanguard website.
As mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Wheelock College must obtain an Entrance Health Form (2016-2017 form is coming soon) from all Undergraduate students and resident Graduate students. This form records physical health, mental health, and immunization records. It must be completed by all Undergraduate and resident Graduate students prior to their arrival on campus. Matriculation at Wheelock College is dependent upon the submission of a completed Entrance Health Certificate to the Wheelock College Student Health Liaison. Students who fail to submit a completed Entrance Health Certificate may not be permitted to register for future classes, may incur an $80 fine, and/or may be removed from on-campus housing. If you have any questions please call Wheelock College Student Health Services (WCSHS) Liaison at 617-879-2108.
In addition, the Wheelock Counseling Center provides a variety of services that foster the enhancement of students' psychological health and personal effectiveness. The Counseling Center is located on campus in the Pilgrim Building.
