There may be times when a referral to a skilled clinician in the community may be appropriate. Examples include situations where more specialized care is warranted or when longer-term ongoing treatment is recommended. UHCS has relationships with a wide selection of skilled primary care clinicians, specialists and treatment settings, in the Boston area who are available to provide high quality services to Northeastern students.
UHCS staff will assess your current concerns and may recommend that you consult with or continue your care with a specialist who provides an assessment or services, that aides in diagnosis and treatment. Referrals provide:
- On-going care
- Services not offered at UHCS
- Continuing care
UHCS can help.
The UHCS Referral Coordinators individualize referral support that considers your health plan, convenient location, and specific clinical needs. We can often accommodate other personal preferences. The Referral Coordinator can be reached at 617-373-2772, option #5.
