• Medical Services provides in-person and telehealth visits for student convenience and to meet the healthcare needs of all students.

    To schedule an in-person or telehealth appointment, please go to shsportal.newschool.edu or contact us at 212.229.1671, option 2. Please note that you must be located in New York State to schedule a telehealth appointment. For students who need to be seen urgently, booking for same-day medical appointments becomes available at midnight through the SHS portal.

    Please review the following important procedures we have put into place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure for those who visit SHS: 

    • If you have a fever, sore throat, cough, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, please do not walk into SHS. Instead, please schedule a telehealth appointment or call 212.229.1671 for assistance.
    • If you have an in-person appointment, please arrive no earlier than five minutes before your scheduled appointment. There is limited seating in the waiting area for safety purposes.
    • You must wear a well-fitting surgical, KN95, KN94, or N95 mask at all times while in SHS. If you arrive without an appropriate mask, one will be provided for you.
    • You may be required to complete a COVID screening questionnaire and/or temperature check when you arrive for your visit with a provider.

    All students can access medical services at no charge. However, insurance must be billed to cover the costs of diagnostic tests, X-rays, lab tests, and other outside services. Depending on your plan, deductibles and copayments may apply, which are your responsibility.

    If you have questions, please email shs@newschool.edu.
