With SHORT COURSES and WORKSHOPS running throughout the Summer!
Tufts students and all visiting students can choose to receive service from the Medford/Somerville campus Health Service. The Medford/Somerville campus Health Service provides most services that are available during the fall and spring. Both Tufts and visiting students are eligible for services. Consultant services such as dermatology, orthopedics, or gynecology, however, are not offered.
Tufts Counseling and Mental Health Services strives to help students address their concerns and build on their strengths, in order to make the most of their college experience. Although we do provide services for students in mental-health crises, our primary goal is prevention. Thus, we make every effort to assist students before their concerns may develop into more serious problems. Our three fold approach emphasizes prevention, consultation, and intervention.
The Medford/Somerville Health Service operates with a reduced staff consisting of a nurse practitioner/ physician's assistant and a physician on duty. As there is no blanket health fee during the summer months, a fee-for-service policy applies. The Medford/ Somerville campus Health Service is located at 124 Professors Row, 617.627.3350.
The Student Advisory & Health Administration Office (SAHA) is a division of Student Affairs for the Boston and Grafton Health Sciences Campuses.

An annual mandatory health administration fee is automatically billed to all students for services provided by SAHA.

A recent Bundesgymnasium graduate, Matthias decided to leave his home in Austria for six weeks and spend part of his summer studying international relations and economics at Tufts. He thought the summer before completing his zivildienst (year of public service) was the perfect time to try something new. Matthias saw the advantages of international study at a great American university before entering his "gap" year, and he knew that Tufts University had the summer courses he needed and could transfer to his home university, when the time comes.
