School Health Program—Family Health Centers at NYU Langone

The School Health Program—Family Health Centers at NYU Langone provides medical, mental health, and dental services, along with health education, directly to children and adolescents through clinics located in public elementary, middle, and high schools throughout New York City. We care for children when they are sick, but also provide the preventive medical care to keep them healthy.

By operating clinics inside schools, we help ensure that healthcare is accessible and convenient for children and families. A healthy child misses fewer days of school, which makes it easier to keep up with schoolwork and succeed academically. Also, when a child is healthy, his or her parents miss fewer days of work.

School-based clinics are staffed by at least one nurse practitioner who can write prescriptions, order diagnostic tests for illnesses such as strep throat, and help manage chronic conditions including asthma and diabetes. The health team includes physician assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, psychologists, health educators, medical associates, and patient services associates. Our dentistry program is staffed by a dentist and dental hygienist. Although insurance is billed for visits when appropriate, visits to the school based health center lead to no out-of-pocket costs to families.

Full-Service Healthcare for Children

Care received through the School Health Program does not replace a child’s regular pediatrician or dentist visits. But the clinics can supplement care when necessary, or provide it if a child does not have a regular doctor or dentist.

Preventive care includes immunizations, annual well visits, and back-to-school and sports physicals. The medical team is also available to treat illnesses, administer first aid, provide referral to specialists as needed, and conduct dental, vision, and hearing screenings. At our high school locations, teenagers receive sexual health education, access to contraception, and testing for pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.

Our dental staff performs cleanings, treats cavities, and provides preventive care such as fluoride treatment. Our behavioral health clinicians conduct screenings and psychosocial assessments for students referred for treatment. They provide specific interventions to ensure that students’ social and emotional needs are addressed. There is also access to off-site psychiatric services and referrals to various social services agencies in the community.

All services are available to students enrolled at the participating school. Appointments are scheduled during the school day. A parental consent form is required for all children receiving care, with the exception of adolescents receiving sexual health services. For more information, please contact the individual school.

When schools are closed, services are available at all Family Health Centers at NYU Langone locations.
