Health Clinic

The Florida Polytechnic University Health Clinic is located inside the Wellness Center and offers a variety of healthcare services.  The Health Clinic is provided by Lakeland Regional Health and is staffed by a Registered Nurse.  Students can stop by the clinic for general medical services addressing acute conditions, minor illnesses and injuries. The Clinic can also provide referrals to local health care providers and specialists as needed.

The cost of basic services is free for all students. Anyone who has a health concern, becomes sick, or suffers a non-serious injury should stop by the clinic for evaluation and/or treatment.
