Visiting students and UT students may choose to seek medical care or treatment from our UT Family Practice Center at their own expense. For anyone electing to use the UTFP, the student will need to schedule an appointment, identifying themselves as a medical student and bringing a health insurance card to the appointment, since personal health insurance will be billed and any charge not covered by insurance will be the responsibility of the student.  The phone # is 423.778.UTFP

(8837).   If you have problems getting an appointment or do not get a phone call back, please contact

Sharron Skoretz, C-TAGME, Family Medicine Residency Coordinator, so she can assist. Call her at

423.778.2957 or email her at  Sharron.Skoretz@erlanger.org. Students may also choose to seek medical care from other providers in the area, but would need to determine physicians in-network for their individual health insurance providers.

 

*Please note that students should not seek treatment from a faculty member who might be supervising them as a student.

 

Student Assistance Program

 

UTHSC has contracted the services of the NexGen Student Assistance Program (SAP) to be available for UTHSC students. SAP is a confidential program that motivates students experiencing difficult personal situations to seek or accept professional assistance thus preventing personal concerns from undermining their well-being and academic performance.

 

SAP offers brief, short term, professional counseling for academic troubles, marital and family concerns, substance and alcohol abuse, stress, anxiety, and depression. It also identifies referrals for assistance with other problems encountered in daily living such as childcare and eldercare needs. The services of the SAP are confidential and are delivered by a professional organization by the name

of Eni. Eni provides personal consultation 24/7 for situations that can affect your well-being or academic performance. As a registered UTHSC student, you pay a small assessment for SAP services each semester. You will incur no additional out of pocket expenses and are entitled to be referred for up to 6 counseling sessions per year. Spouses and partners may also be included in the counseling sessions.
