The UHC does NOT see children below 10 years of age.
The UHC provides medical services for primary and acute/sub-acute conditions, illnesses, and injuries rather than comprehensive medical care for major problems. Chronic health conditions may be managed by the student’s primary care physician, and the UHC will work closely with the primary care physician while the student is at Southern. The UHC does NOT take the place of the employee’s primary care physician.
