Student Health Services

Student Health Services
Care at the Bard College Student Health Service is based on a holistic approach to treating students. Our goal is to promote optimum physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well being through education, preventative and primary care.

We believe that health care is a partnership between
the student and the health care provider.
