Student Health Service Staff 2021

When the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic hit and the world changed, one thing remained constant: UD’s Student Health Services (SHS) stayed true to its mission to provide students with quality primary health care and education about healthy lifestyles.

"We are charged with providing the students the very best in health care and ask that students participate in their own health care by being an active and informed consumer," said Dr. Tim Dowling, director of Student Health Services. "Within the scope of the Student Health Services, the health care providers and staff are a resource to help students achieve an optimal state of well-being."

That support has never been more important than during the pandemic.

As news about the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus spread, SHS responded with quick action to set up a triage trailer. In January, SHS drilled and prepared in anticipation of  COVID-19 hitting the campus in the spring. SHS was able to pivot and make changes to normal operations quickly and efficiently. Nursing staff shifted from specific roles within SHS to more general roles, doing whatever was needed to care for students, when the University sent everyone home, while maintaining an essential staff to quickly and efficiently care for local students. Care was shifted to an appointment-based system only, and telehealth protocols were developed. Both these changes are expected to remain in place for years to come.

"I’m extremely proud of how our team has responded to this crisis," Dr. Dowling said. "We have drilled for these types of scenarios annually, and that training paid off. Our staff continues to adapt and learn to find new efficiencies and partners so that we can improve the care that we give.

"This pandemic and the response has pulled the team together more than any other activity, and my staff continues to impress me with their innovative thinking and use of the technologies available to them," he added.Throughout the crisis, the SHS team has worked closely with the Office of the Provost, the vice president for research, scholarship and innovation and other campus departments within Student Life to ensure good response to the challenges on campus. They also connected regularly with the Delaware Division of Public Health to ensure clear and quick communications about the communicable disease spread.

About Student Health Services

SHS serves UD undergraduates, graduate students, athletes and students at the English Language Institute in a variety of areas, including a medical clinic and an immunization clinic, as well as support in the areas of nutrition, women’s health and sports medicine.

All staff are allied trained so that they can work with students of all races, ethnicities and gender identities in a caring and compassionate manner.

An expanded web-booking program allows students to easily make appointments for nutritional services and well-care, including physicals and women’s health appointments.
For students who are traveling abroad, SHS has developed care of plans for study abroad countries to maximize student wellness while they travel.
