ACPHS students may access medical services through Russell Sage College’s wellness centers on the Albany and Troy campuses. The well-established health centers offer holistic medical care to students. Nurse practitioners work in collaboration with a physician to offer physicals, sick visits and referrals to other medical experts as needed.  

Services are covered by the ACPHS student health and wellness fee. If referrals to specialists are required, students must use other means, including their health insurance, to cover those costs. All services, including consultations and referrals, are confidential. Information is not shared without written consent.
