Medical care

Canisius has a Student Health Center which provides care and treatment for short term illnesses and injuries. For long term illnesses or more serious injuries, students will be referred to a primary care doctor.

Kings staff are also on hand to help you register with a doctor.

Above all, it is compulsory you have full medical insurance during your time in the USA. You can organize for this to be done through us or you will need to provide us with evidence you have alternative insurance.
