Brown University Health Services is available to all Pre-College Program students during business hours (8:00am – 4:00pm) Monday through Friday for medical problems such as colds, cuts, sprains, or infections. Situations involving medical attention are referred to local area hospitals, and parents/guardians will be notified. Limited pharmacy and x-ray hours are offered.

Brown University maintains its own Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Our EMTs are equipped to respond to medical emergencies 24 hours a day. Situations involving medical attention after business hours are referred to local area hospitals.

A Residential Advisor will chaperone the student at the hospital and remain with the student until they are treated and released. The parent/guardian will be notified if a student is transported to the hospital. Students should expect to spend an average of 3 hours in the Emergency Room.
