Minor injuries and health problems are treated by the College staff nurse. An Ithaca College physician is also available during regularly scheduled hours each day. If necessary, referrals are made to local physicians and medical facilities on a fee-for-service basis. Payment of fees incurred for off-campus physician visits and/or medication is the responsibility of the institute participant or his or her family.
Teens who will be staying in a dormitory must complete and return the health information form that is sent with the invoice. Participation in the institutes is contingent on receipt of the health form two weeks prior to the first day of scheduled activities.
