At the end of the 2015-16 academic year, in an effort to improve patient care and diagnostic and patient outcomes, the Student Health Center implemented the electronic health recording (EHR) system, Medicat. Medicat is an EHR system developed specifically for student health centers and allows for easy access to health records for students and practioners. 

Students are able to use the Medicat portal to:

  • Upload their Pre-Entrance Health Form
  • Access their health records for all visits to the SHC
  • Access and print immunization records
