The student healthcare service is located on Descartes campus.

Nurses perform first aid care but also technical, educative and relational care. They ensure the follow up of medical record with the doctors; they welcome, listen and if needed, guide towards appropriate medical structure.

It is recommended to contact the medical secretary to check the availability of nurses and doctors and to set up an appointment if necessary.
