If a new WMU student wants to review complicated health history to determine whether transfer of care to the campus health center is appropriate, please call (269) 387-3287 to make an appointment to discuss care with one of our providers.

When students require specialty care not delivered at the health center, a clinical visit may be scheduled with a Sindecuse provider to obtain your health history and assist you with a referral to a Kalamazoo specialist.

Transferring Prescriptions

To transfer a prescription, bring your medication container and prescription insurance card to the Sindecuse pharmacy. We’ll take care of transferring your prescription.
