Medical services available at PUSH (Purdue University Student Health Center)
Students can visit PUSH during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 8:30am - 4:30pm or during Urgent Care hours Monday through Friday from 8am - 8pm and Saturday & Sunday from 10am - 6pm. At these PUSH visits, students can receive medical treatment for injuries resulting from sexual violence and/or receive a forensic sexual assault examination. No record of getting this examination will appear on any billing statement on your student account. No appointments are necessary to receive a forensic sexual assault examination. A SANE nurse should be available to meet with you within 15-20 minutes if one is in the building. If a SANE nurse needs to be called in, they should be able to meet you within one hour or less. (For more information about the exams, see Medical care after sexual violence).
