All students requesting information to be sent out of the Health Center or if the Health Center requests that health records be sent to Drake, need to complete the Authorization for Release of Medical Information. This form specifies who is releasing the information and where you would like the information to be sent. All substance abuse, mental health and HIV-related information need to be specifically authorized for release of information.
The Student Health Center does not give notes for missed classes. We encourage students to do self-care as all illnesses do not require medical attention. If a student feels a professor or parent needs to talk with someone in the Health Center the student must complete and sign a Medical Release of Information which allows the Health Center staff to speak with the designated person(s).
