The Student Health Service is located at the Marshall Medical Center at Cabell Huntington Hospital. The Student Health Service is designed to treat acute illnesses. Services are delivered by the Department of Family and Community Medicine, a division of the School of Medicine. Operating hours are from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and it is closed Saturdays, Sundays, and on school holidays. The Student Health Service encourages students to make appointments for treatment, but will treat students on a walk-in basis. Marshall University recommends that all students carry medical insurance in case of serious illness or injury.
