Whether you are coming to our clinic for an in-person visit, or talking with us virtually, a little preparation on your part will go a long way towards having a successful visit and establishing a health care partnership with your Student Health provider.

Here are some tasks to complete before your visit with us if possible.  It's a long list and we appreciate your time and attention to it! 

Based on the type of appointment you have, follow the steps below. Click on the links to the forms below to download and complete them.  Once you have filled them out, send them in to us through MyChart.  Follow these instructions on how to upload photos and files to your medical chart.   

We encourage the use of MyChart for many reasons, but if you prefer not to use MyChart, you can email documents to student-health@uiowa.edu

 

For a NEW PATIENT (first time) appointment: 

Psychiatry provider- consent form, health history and questionnaire

Primary care provider - medical history form 

Primary care provider for a mental health issue- medical history form and questionnaire 

Gynecology provider - medical history form

 

For any IN-PERSON (new or return) visit: 

  • Please do not come to your appointment if you are ill with a temperature of 100 degrees or over, cough, shortness of breath, or if you feel sick in any way. Call our Nurseline to discuss your symptoms before leaving home
  • We ask you to wear your own cloth (or other type) face mask to protect you and others from illness.  We will provide you with a disposable mask if you don't have one
  • We will take your temperature and ask you some screening questions when you come to the clinic 
  • Come by yourself- this minimizes potential exposure to illness for all
  • Bring your student ID, your insurance card

 

Important information for ANY (new or return) TeleHealth (video visits) at Student Health: 

Just like the medical assistant would check your vital signs in our exam room, we would like your help in taking your own temperature (using a thermometer, if you have one) and pulse before your visit if possible. Use your phone or monitoring device, or watch this short video on how to take your pulse manually. Record both your pulse and temperature so you can report it to us. 

Read the helpful tips for your visit- be sure to select which type of provider you are seeing, to get the most useful information.   

 

If you are a new patient, or any time your insurance changes:  complete this insurance form.   It also helps expedite check-in if you can send in a copy of the front and back of your insurance card in advance, whether it is your policy or your parents.  If you have SHIP or UI GradCare, submit your information via MyChart. You can check MyChart any time to see if we have your current insurance information.

 

Thank you and we hope you have a great visit with us.
