Medical Care for Students

Note that direct medical care is not available on campus.

Enrolled students who have a question about a health topic or need advice about what level of care to seek can speak with a nurse at 161 Massachusetts Avenue, fourth floor, in the Counseling Center, Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m.–5;00 p.m. Call 617-747-2019 if you are not sure where to go first.

Students, faculty, and staff experiencing a medical emergency should either call Public Safety at 617-747-8888 (extension 8888 if on campus) or 911 from any location.

Tufts Medical Center is the preferred medical center for currently enrolled Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee students. Tufts Medical Center is a major academic medical center with its main campus located in the heart of downtown Boston. It provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care for both adults and children. Tufts Medical Center has pioneered innovative programs in clinical care, biomedical research, education, and health delivery for more than 220 years.

Many services are available through Tufts Medical Center's Collegiate Clinic for Wellness, including same-day/next-day urgent care visits, and their goal is to provide the highest level of quality care for all of our student's needs. Berklee is committed to ensuring ease of access to medical care to reduce barriers to quality care.

Students who are currently enrolled can contact Tufts Medical Center's dedicated student line at 617-636-6006 to schedule an appointment in the Collegiate Clinic for Wellness (CCW) or to request more information. The phone line's hours of operation are Monday–Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is no charge and no copay for visits to the CCW. Lab work, imaging studies, and appointments with other providers at TMC outside of the CCW will be charged to insurance. All major insurances are accepted, including the  Berklee-sponsored health insurance plan .

Because locations vary depending on the type of visit, students will be informed of the location when calling for an appointment. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, please call during business hours or visit online anytime. Interpreter services are available.

Although Berklee has a relationship with Tufts Medical Center, students are welcome to pursue medical services at any location. Boston offers world-class health care and has a wide range of medical services available. Some of those locations are listed below.
