The Student Health Clinic also provides lab services for students who require them but prefer to continue to work with a hometown health care provider. The provider may fax lab orders (to include the patient's full name, date of birth, tests ordered, and diagnosis codes) directly to the clinic at 701-355-3770. The patient may then schedule a time for his or her lab work to be done. Results will be faxed directly to the student's provider.
Clinic staff is also here "just to talk" to students about any issue having an impact on their health and well-being. The staff is able to assist students with timely referrals to CHI St. Alexius Health specialists as well as to other campus or community medical/mental health programs or services for issues such as:
