Wellness Center Services

First Aid IconThe Wellness Center offers CPR/First Aid classes monthly free of charge to students, staff, and faculty. When these classes are concluded, the participant will receive CPR/AED/First Aid Certification through the American Heart Association.

Consultations Icon

Prospective Flight and Air Traffic Control students should be aware that certain sensory impairments, medical, neurobiological, and psychological conditions, and prescription medications might delay or preclude FAA medical certification. Students should discuss these issues with an aviation medical examiner to ensure they are eligible to participate in instruction.

Students must go to the FAA MedXPress webpage for paperwork before their appointment with an FAA examiner.

Students may also contact the Wellness Center staff for information regarding eligibility for certification. FAA medical examiners can be located through Flight Physical or AME Locator.

Lab services IconThe Wellness Center does not operate a clinical medical laboratory. However, blood and other specimens are collected here with medical orders. Specimens are routinely sent to LabCorp for analysis. 

It is the student's responsibility to know if their insurance requires a specific lab provider and what lab tests will be covered under their insurance policy. Students are responsible for any unpaid laboratory bills. Each student must have a good understanding of their insurance policy coverage to prevent unnecessary changes. 

Additionally, Embry-Riddle's Health & Wellness Center will provide free taxi rides to and from off-campus medical appointments. Calls for taxi rides must come from the Wellness Center.
Immunizations IconAll students attending classes must complete all Embry-Riddle health requirements. This ensures that students in class are properly immunized.If you have private insurance, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service for all immunizations. Receipts will be given for insurance reimbursement. Students with the University insurance will have no co-pay.

For more information and to view our list of required immunizations, visit our Immunizations Page.
Insurance IconERAU requires all students to carry health insurance. Students who do not have their own insurance can participate in the school sponsored health insurance program.
