The Health Services Center located at 72 Pine St., 2nd Floor. Appointments can be made by phone (401-454-6625).

Medical Referrals

Do you need specialty care, or have a chronic or complex health problem? We can link you with medical specialists in the Providence community for one-time or continuing care while at RISD — from chiropractors and dermatologists to cardiologists and orthopedic surgeons. If your medical situation requires care beyond what Health Services can provide or you need tests that we do not offer (such as x-rays), then we will assist in a referral to a specialist or an urgent care facility.
