Student Health and Development

The Student Health & Development Center (SHDC) is located on the lower level of Lura Manor. Elevator access is available at the northwest door.

Student Health Center

The goal of the Student Health Center is to improve the status of health and ultimately the quality of life of MSU students while they are on campus and as they plan for the future. Focus is on health promotion, risk reduction through surveillance and control of health hazards, health education, and referral to other campus or community services as needs are identified.

The Student Health Center is staffed by a nurse practitioner, registered nurse, and a licensed practical nurse, with a referral service to Minot Center for Family Medicine as needed. These providers diagnose and treat a variety of acute health problems in an ambulatory clinic setting and make referrals as indicated by the health care needs of students. Student health care is intended to supplement private health care. It is not intended to provide comprehensive medical care.

At the discretion of the Student Health Center staff, assistance provided may include, but is not limited to:

  • Treatment of minor illness and injury
  • Immunizations
  • Contraception and/or contraceptive counseling
  • Sexually transmitted disease education, screening and treatment
  • Preparation and maintenance of medical records
  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • CLIA waived laboratory services
  • Health maintenance exams
  • Health education/promotion programs
  • Mental health screening and treatment/referral
  • Prescriptions as necessary
  • Tuberculosis screening and testing
  • Mandatory reporting of communicable diseases
  • Sports and employment physicals
  • Referral assistance to community health resources (primary care for chronic disease, emergency care, procedures, dental, vision, radiology, pharmacy, and full laboratory services)

The Student Development Center offers counseling and disability services.

Counseling Services

The mission of Minot State University Counseling Services is to empower and advocate for the student’s personal and educational development through short-term counseling and educational outreach. We want student experiences here to be positive and growth promoting. Personal counseling services provide free, confidential consultation, short-term intervention and referral. Counseling sessions are kept in strict confidence within legal and ethical limits. In situations where the problems are more long standing, referrals can be provided for services within the community.

Other services include:

• Educational programming on campus

• In-class presentations on request

• Stress management training

   • Residence hall outreach
