Finding a doctor
Curtis encourages students to use the resources at Penn Student Health Service, which can help you locate a doctor or specialist. Students who obtain insurance coverage through Curtis should find a doctor in-network. Students who do not have insurance through Curtis can find a doctor through the University of Pennsylvania Health System or Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals.
Curtis encourages students to enhance their general health and performance-related health by exercising routinely. Physical fitness particularly benefits musicians, who have prolonged rehearsals and performances. Develop lifelong exercise habits now to help reduce injury and improve your musical performance. Read “Student Health 101” online each month, and attend the health and wellness workshops presented by the Office of Student Services. Curtis reimburses students $100 per semester toward gym and health club fees; see the associate dean of student services for more information.
A number of students are also provided with individual exercise training with the Zarett Fitness and Rehab Center. Additional information will be available prior to the start of the school year.
