2018-19 Student Handbook and Wellness Guide

Health Services

In the event of injury or other medical emergencies, the nearest instructor or staff member and the dean or director should be notified. Professional emergency care, if needed, will be secured by the appropriate dean, director, campus liaison, or the Vice President for Administrative Services. As a nonresidential school, Augusta Technical College expects that the student will normally secure medical services through a family physician. In case of a serious accident or illness, the College will refer the student to the nearest hospital (or hospital of the student’s choice) for emergency care and will notify the student’s next-of-kin. It is to be understood that the student or the student’s family will be responsible for the cost of such emergency care, including ambulance service, if in the opinion of college authorities, such service is necessary.
