Mission Statement & Welcome
Physical well-being has a tremendous impact on a student's academic performance. Our mission is to provide and maintain the optimal health of our students by modifying or removing health-related barriers to learning. We meet this goal by helping our students obtain the skills to remain healthy throughout life and enhancing their lives as a member of the academy and wider community. The Student Health Center provides confidential, high quality and easily accessible clinic-based primary care services to all Cal Maritime matriculated students.
The academy encourages students to utilize the Student Health Center for their medical needs such as urgent care (drop-in), scheduled appointments, physicals, basic lab, specialty clinics, medications prescribed by our healthcare providers and referrals to off-campus providers.
During the annual training cruise, the Cal Maritime Student Health Center relocates to the Medical Treatment Facility onboard the Training Ship GOLDEN BEAR. This facility is staffed with a Chief Medical Officer (Physician) and a Medical Officer (Nurse Practitioner) 24 hours a day for emergency care. In addition to this 24-hour, on-call service, the medical team provides a drop-in clinic twice a day while at sea and once a day while in port for students to access health care. The training ship is equipped with a basic lab, x-ray, medical commodities and pharmaceuticals to support most of the health care needs presented by students.
While on campus or at sea, the care of certain illnesses, injuries and conditions may require hospitalization or services beyond our scope of authorized care. In this incidence, a student will be referred to local medical serviceswhere utilization of their medical insurance will be essential. On behalf of the Student Health Center welcome to Cal Maritime.
