Class Excuse: Student Health Services does not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, or assignments.  We suggest that students dialogue with faculty members regarding their circumstances for missed classes or assignments.  This policy is based on our limited resources, which are better dedicated to providing health care; the inability for us to make valid determinations about illnesses or injuries students may have effectively managed through self-care; and our commitment to student privacy. 

This policy is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association and is similar to other colleges and universities.  It is respectful of students and their responsibilities, promotes trust among students and faculty and allows students more time to devote to their studies.

Confidentiality: The confidentiality of your visit and your medical records are essential to providing the highest quality health care. Visits to the Student Health Center are confidential and are completely separate from the rest of your Kalamazoo College records.

The Student Health Center uses Epic Electronic Medical Records. This involves separate but integrated healthcare providers, delivering healthcare together, and sharing personal health information for clinical care services and related healthcare operations and activities.  Only authorized individuals may access and use protected health information in Epic.  Registered nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physicians, and consultants giving direct care may read and enter data on a chart.  All staff sign a confidentiality form. Those employees with access to medical information shall respect the doctrine of confidentiality and not divulge any information contained in the medical record unless they are authorized to do so by the student.

Your medical records or any information about you may only be released with your authorization (Records Release), except in certain cases specified by law. Healthcare providers are required by law to report certain communicable diseases. We may also release information in aggregate for research, public health, and safety issues or to your health insurance for specific billing purposes.
