Whom We Serve

We serve Oregon Health & Sciences University students and postdoctoral fellows at the Portland campus on Marquam Hill.  All current registered students in degree and certificate training programs, who are assessed the required health fees in addition to their tuition at OHSU are eligible for health and counseling services at the JBT Health & Wellness Center.  Postdoctoral fellows are eligible for services at a .5 FTE or higher. 

Eligibility for new students begins on the first day of the month their classes start. In addition to students, we also make available the services of the JBT Health & Wellness Center to the spouse or registered domestic partner of an eligible student or postdoctoral fellow. Enrollment times and registration rules and affidavits for domestic partnership apply and these are available upon request at the JBT Health & Wellness administrative office (Room 6). Health insurance for spouses, registered domestic partners and dependents is also available and eligibility rules and restricted enrollment times apply.
