The Student Health Services for The Claremont Colleges, has a nurse advice phone service. Students can call the office during office hours and speak with a registered nurse for advice or to determine if the student needs to be seen by a medical provider that day or for a future appointment.
If the nurse is unable to answer the phone, students may leave a message and the advice nurse will return the call between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students can get self-care help and instructions for conditions, including upset stomach, cold symptoms, fever, sore throat and rash. The nurses can also answer questions about birth control or sexually transmitted infection concerns. Patients may be directed to see a medical provider at the Student Health Services or be advised to go to the local urgent care center or emergency room if needed. On-call services are available after office hours through campus safety at (909) 607-2000.
