Welcome to UGA! Here you will find everything you need to know about health and wellness at UGA.
Healthcare in the US might seem very different from what you are accustomed to. Buying insurance, making appointments, and choosing a primary care provider are a few things you will need to consider.
Don’t feel like you are alone. We are here to help you navigate accessing health and wellness care for the first time in the US at UGA.

Our goal is to help you stay healthy and feeling your best so you can participate fully in the UGA experience.
The UGA Health Center is your one-stop-shop for integrated medical, wellness, and specialty services.
To start, every student is assigned a primary care provider (PCP) home. At UGA we have arranged the four PCP homes by colors: Red, Gold, Blue, and Green.
We are a fully integrated model, which means we treat and recommend services that are unique to each patient's needs, whether that is treating illness, providing wellness resources, counseling, health coaching, and much more. Your PCP is your first stop.
Additionally, we provide mental wellness and specialty care, including health coaching, nutrition, group counseling, dental, vision, physical therapy, sports medicine, and a full-range of wellness needs!
Be sure to call on us when you need support!
