HIV testing at Student Health
We are happy to offer free, confidential rapid fingerstick testing with our Health Counselor Erin Taylor. The entire visit, including getting results, takes about 30 minutes. You can schedule this appointment on-line by clicking here or by calling 215.746.3535.
Students can also choose to have HIV testing done at a Primary Care, Men's Health or Women's Health appointment. The non-rapid blood test is a blood draw sent to Quest laboratories and is neither anonymous nor free. Results are available in about one week.
In addition, statutes governing medical records dictate that pre- and post-test visits are part of a student’s medical record. Medical providers can order confidential HIV tests as part of an evaluation for a medical illness or occupational exposure.
