Maintaining good physical health is an essential part of education and the SMU Health & Counseling Center staff are committed to partnering with students to make informed choices and provide a holistic approach to student health, education, wellness and outreach services in a confidential, inclusive, and respectful environment.
Students at the SACRAMENTO campus can access Health Services through the Sutter @ Work program. Samuel Merritt University is contracted with clinics in the Sacramento area for free annual PPD updates. Physical exams & vaccinations are charged a fee and the student is responsible for those fees.
