General Information

Georgetown University Student Health Center (SHC)

We have partnered with Georgetown University Student Health Center, which means that if you need to see a doctor, you are welcome to use the Georgetown University Student Health Centerjust as you would the W&M campus Health Center.  You are not required to use Georgetown; our relationship with them is to supplement the availability of the student health center.

Georgetown SHC Contacts

Dr. James Marsh is the Director of the Student Health Center. He is available and willing to answer any questions or concerns parents or students may have concerning their health care. He can be reached at (202) 687-1977. 

Elaine Whetzel is the Administrator of the Health Center and can also be contacted regarding insurance questions and services offered. Her phone number is (202) 687-2457.

For all visits, please bring:
  • Your William & Mary ID
  • Your insurance cards/ information

If you experience any confusion being a non-Georgetown student, you should ask for the office administrator, Elaine Whetzel. 

There is a fee for all services provided at the clinic. The health insurance is billed first, but the student and/or parents are responsible for any charges not covered by insurance.  Most insurance companies require a small co-payment be paid at each visit.  Students can make this payment by cash, check, or credit card.  (Every effort will be made to assist where financial hardship exists.) The health center is staffed by Family Practice faculty physicians and nurse practitioners with particular training and experience in providing high quality health care.
