The professional staff of the Office of Student Services is here to make sure your experience is a positive one, and will do whatever they can to support you in the transition to the Washington, D.C., metro area.
While The Washington Center does not have a clinic of its own, we strive to provide our students with access to the best resources available while they are interning in D.C. You’ll receive a list of nearby medical facilities and mental health resources. If you need temporary health care coverage for the semester, our Student Services team will connect you with places to obtain it; all students are required to have health insurance.
The health and safety of students is very important to The Washington Center. Washington, D.C., offices, residential buildings, and public transit systems have well-established procedures for responding to issues that arise. At orientation, you’ll be briefed on the emergency policies and procedures.
