Center for Health and Wellness

The Center for Health and Wellness supports the health and wellness of each student, enhancing the learning environment of Emerson College through a range of services and programs.

At the Center for Health and Wellness, we believe good health is essential for academic achievement.

Our mission is to provide quality accessible health care for students, sponsor programs that promote healthy choices, and enhance our campus community. The Center provides a range of health and wellness services and programs to meet the needs of Emerson College students.

The Center is directed by a nurse practitioner. Our staff includes nurse practitioners, a physician assistant, a nutritionist, and a health and wellness educator. A supervising physician is available on call when medically necessary.

Making Appointments

All Center visits are by appointment only; we can not accept walk-ins.

Please call to schedule an appointment at 617-824-8666 or by visiting the front desk. Any students seeking care will be scheduled for the next available appointment. We are not able to provide emergency services.

All undergraduate students, plus graduate students who have paid the health fee and/or enrolled in Aetna student health, are eligible for the Center’s services

Communicating Medical Information Securely 

The Online Student Health Portal is the most secure and efficient way to communicate with your CHW provider or administrator. View/ send secure messages with your health care provider, access test results, manage your immunization records and more by going to: Log in with your Emerson ID and password. 

NOTE: The Center for Health and Wellness will be communicating with students via the OSH Portal, instead of Emerson ECMail. If you have a secure message in your inbox in the Portal, you will receive a notification in your preferred email instructing you to log in and read it. 

Immunization Clinics
