    College life results in exposure to many communicable diseases, and immunizations are available for a number of these diseases. Rural Community Health Center offers influenza, Hepatitis B, measles, mumps and rubella, meningitis, and HPV vaccines to name a few . Prior to coming to FIMT, students should check with their physician or local health department as to current recommendations regarding their own immunization status. Most immunizations are available at private physician offices and health departments, as well as at the Health Center. For further information about immunizations or how to schedule appointments for them, you may call 011-30620600-09 (Extn.211) and ask to speak to a nurse.

    Laboratory Services

    Comprehensive laboratory services are available at the Rural Community Health Center. Some basic laboratory testing, including blood sugar, hemoglobin, rapid strep tests and urinalysis can be done on site. Most other laboratory tests are collected at the Health Center, then picked up and delivered to Specialized and advanced Laboratories. These labs have short turnaround time for results. A follow up appointment is usually made for discussion of the results. Some students may need lab work as ordered by their hometown physician. If so, arrangements can be made to have the samples collected at the Health Center or advanced Medical Center and results sent to the ordering physician .

    Women's Health Clinic

    An annual exam is recommended for all women 18 years of age and older, or sooner, if sexually active. During the exam, the doctor examines the breasts and female reproductive organs, and takes a PAP smear of the cervix (lower portion of the uterus). The purpose of the PAP smear is to detect cancerous or precancerous changes of the cervix, so that these can be dealt with before complications arise. It is important to avoid intercourse, douching or insertion of vaginal creams for 24 - 48 hours prior to your exam in insure a good PAP specimen. The annual exam also includes getting your height, weight, blood pressure, urinalysis and hemoglobin. This service is by appointment only. Confidential assessment and testing for sexually transmitted diseases and other vaginal or urinary infections are offered. We provide prompt medical treatment and follow-up care as needed. With the recent increase in prevalence of genital warts, many women are now showing abnormal cells on their PAP smears, due in large part to the HPV (genital wart) virus. In the past, follow-up for these abnormalities required referral to another medical center. The Health Center offers confidential pregnancy testing. A blood test is done and results are given on the same day. There is no appointment necessary for this service .

    Weight Control Clinic

    This is an individualized weight control program with professional guidance and support. A brief physical exam review of your medical history, setting realistic goals and choosing a diet and exercise plan to fit your needs is all part of this service. Call to set up an appointment with our professional staff.
