Medical services are provided to students through the Student Health Center located in the McLeod Building, immediately off campus at 121 Evander Drive. The Student Health Center is staffed by a family nurse practitioner and can refer students to other health professionals as necessary. The Student Health Services Family Nurse Practitioner also serves as the FMU Automated External Defibrillator (AED) liaison. AED units are located in several buildings on campus. The campus AED locations and the AED protocol can be found here.
Campus Police officers undergo Emergency Medical First Responder training. After completion of the training program, officers are certified as National Registry Medical First Responders.
