Students will be entitled to use the on-campus clinic for out-patient medical consultation. Registered health personnel are available at the on-campus clinic to screen student medical complaints and provide first aid; if needed, health staff would then refer students to local physicians or to a hospital for emergency medical treatment. When students are referred to local providers for medical consultation and/or hospitalization, EPIC staff member would accompany them, and parents would be informed as soon as possible. All costs associated with medical care are the responsibility of the student.

EPIC’s administrative and health staff dispense medications as authorized by physicians' signatures on the appropriate medical forms.
