Specialist Referrals

After seeing a health care provider at the Student Health and Wellness Center, they may determine that you need to see a specialist for more thorough evaluation and/or testing. As a courtesy to our students, we have an insurance/referral coordinator who is more than happy to assist you with this process. The coordinator can be reached at 410-516-7311. Referrals are taken in the order in which they have been received except for urgent matters.
