Abrons Student Health Center

Confidentiality

Medical records are maintained on all UNCW students – these include the information you provided when you enrolled at UNCW and any records that were generated as a result of medical care you received at the Student Health Center. Information in the medical record is confidential and access is restricted to Student Health Center staff. Your medical records will not be released to anyone unless you provide written consent or when required by public health law or by court order. We will not release medical records to parents, professors, university administration, or others, except in a life-threatening situation or, in some situations, if you are a minor. Please notify your Student Health provider if your parent plans to call and you would like your provider to discuss your medical care with them. Know that we take your confidentiality seriously.
