Medical and Nursing Services

We at Duquesne University Health Service, advocate the provision of competent, confidential and compassionate health care to all full time undergraduate and graduate students for the education of the mind, heart, and spirit.  We are committed to creating an environment that encourages students to take responsibility for their personal health, fitness, and education through the promotion of healthy lifestyles and disease prevention.  We embrace diversity, uphold the University Mission to Serve God by Serving Students, and strive to identify and address individual student needs.  Our role within the University will enable students to participate fully in their educational process, as well as prepare them for life beyond, as health minded educated consumers of health care, in society.
