• Provide quality support for health care through laboratory, insurance, secretarial, and referral resources.
• Provide health education to prevent illness, to teach self-help strategies, and increase awareness of potentially unhealthy practices so that students may choose their optimal healthy life style.
• Empower students through education and professional guidance to become self-directed and well-informed consumers of health care services.
• Adhere to established ethical principles and codes of professional practice, including patient confidentiality, privacy, dignity, and informed consent.
• Provide an environment of caring with a non-judgmental approach, to maintain an atmosphere of mutual respect, and to uphold and protect our patient’s rights in the process of health care delivery.
