Panther Health Clinic
Drury offers student health services through a contractual agreement with Cox Health Systems. Full-time students who have completed and returned their individual student health forms (including physical exam and immunization records), and have paid their student health fee, are eligible for these services.
The Panther Clinic is supervised by Cox Health Systems and is located in the south wing of Weiser Gym. Services are available during fall and spring semesters to full-time (12 hours or more) day students and international students covered by the Drury University student health insurance plan. The clinic is available during the summer to students enrolled in summer classes.
A nurse practitioner is available from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday when classes are in session. Students who need to see a doctor may be referred to the Family Medical Care Center. This family practice residency program is a part of Cox Health Systems and is located a short distance from campus in Cox North Hospital. Lab fees, x-rays and any necessary procedures will be charged to individual students or to their insurance carrier and must be paid at the time of the visit. After-hours emergency visits are referred to the Cox Medical Center North emergency room and are the financial responsibility of the student and the student’s family.
In case of illness, students should contact the Panther Clinic between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. At other times students may contact the head resident of their hall or the Dean of Students office. It is not mandatory to contact these people in case of illness or accident before proceeding to the hospital, but they should be notified as soon as possible.
