About Us

The mission of Boyd Health Services is to ensure the delivery of high quality holistic health care that is accessible, affordable, and that emphasizes and promotes healthy lifestyles and behaviors that lead to lifelong wellness for the APSU community.

Our staff includes nurse practitioners, physicians, medical assistants, a pharmacist, a coordinator of student wellness and prevention, medical office personnel, graduate assistants that assist with health promotion programming, and student workers. We offer primary and preventive care, acute illness and injury care, family planning/contraception visits, STD screening and treatment, limited management of chronic conditions, treatment of mental illnesses, employment/sports/school physicals, medication refills, immunizations, laboratory testing, allergy injections and health education programs.


Austin Peay students who are currently registered or enrolled in classes are eligible for services. Faculty and staff who are currently employed by Austin Peay are also eligible for services. Spouses* and dependents of faculty or staff that are not also employed at APSU are not eligible for services. *Spouses that only need to complete the employee insurance screening and biometrics form can receive that service here.


Eligible students, staff, and faculty can schedule an appointment by giving us a call at (931)221-7107 or by going to the APSU portal. We have open appointments for walk-ins daily, but they can get booked up quickly during peak times. We recommend that you call as soon as possible so that we can get you in to be seen in the earliest possible slot.

There is no charge to students for most office visits. Some visits, like annual exams, new contraceptive visits, and work/sports/school physicals are fee-based due to the time involved. Employees are charged an access fee of $15 per visit when seen in Health Services. All patients will be charged for medications obtained through the in-house pharmacy, lab tests, procedures and medical supplies necessary for treatment. These costs will be charged to their Austin Peay Health Services account and can be paid through One Stop or at the Cashiers' window. Boyd Health Services does not file insurance for the clinic visit including the charges for physical exams, access fee, medications, lab tests, procedures and supplies.

Class Excuses

Class attendance is an individual student responsibility and a matter between the student and their professor(s). Therefore, with limited exceptions, medical excuses will not be issued by Health Services for missed classes or examinations. This includes "retroactive class excuse" for an illness that has already resolved. If you will be absent from class due to illness, you are responsible for calling or emailing your instructors as soon as possible to notify them of your illness and to determine how best to make up the class time or missed assignments. Please note that class absence policies – excused or unexcused – are at the discretion of the instructors.
