Health and Wellness

Fitness Facilities

The TUSPM fitness gym is outfitted with weight training and aerobic training equipment. The gym is located in the basement floor of the academic building and hours are the same as the building hours.

Students are also able to use the Independence Blue Cross Recreation Center (IBC) on Temple University’s Main Campus. More information about the IBC.

Health Services

Healthcare and health services are provided by Temple University’s Student Health Services, located on Main Campus and the Health Sciences Center campus.

The services provided by physicians and staff from Temple University Hospital include family practice, gynecology and psychology. Vaccinations are also provided to all students in need at the same location. Proof of vaccination is required of all students, as well as tuberculosis testing, to work in the clinics of TUSPM and all external hospital rotations sites.

All students are required to have appropriate health insurance coverage. Coverage is offered by Temple University. A representative from Main Campus makes a presentation annually about coverage. Students can also secure their own private insurance coverage. The Office of Student Affairs oversees the insurance process at TUSPM and is available to answer students’ questions.

The university has established a Student Health Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from the various health science center programs to address the concerns of students and provide recommendations for policy and process. The TUSPM director of Student Services serves on the Committee representing the concerns of our college.

TUSPM students can also access other health and wellness opportunities.
