Distance Students

Student Counseling Service is committing to supporting all RFUMS students throughout the duration of your academic career.  For students on clinical rotations, internships and residencies, coming to campus regularly may not be convenient.  There are a number of options available to support our distance students.  We offer appointments on the first Saturday of the month.  Distance students may also take advantage of our tele-psychology service, which involves phone sessions with a SCS clinician.  We will meet with you for several sessions in person prior to transitioning to phone sessions if we determine that you are a good candidate for this service.  In order to utilize tele-psychology services, you must be a resident in IL and be located in the state during your session.  We can also support you with referrals to a community provider convenient to you; please note that you will be using your insurance to see non-SCS providers.
