In the interest of preserving health care resources and limiting exposure, Boyd Health Services is currently taking the following precautions - limiting in-person visits to appointment only, and requiring each patient and/or visitor to wear face covering upon entry. 

About Us

The mission of Boyd Health Services is to ensure the delivery of high quality holistic health care that is accessible, affordable, and that emphasizes and promotes healthy lifestyles and behaviors that lead to lifelong wellness for the APSU community.

Our staff includes nurse practitioners, physicians, medical assistants, a pharmacist, medical office personnel, and graduate assistants that assist with health promotion programming. We offer primary and preventive care, acute illness and injury care, family planning/contraception visits, STD screening and treatment, limited management of chronic conditions, treatment of mental illnesses, employment/sports physicals, medication refills, immunizations, laboratory testing, allergy injections and health education programs.


Full time Austin Peay students who are currently registered or enrolled in classes are eligible for services. Faculty and staff are also eligible for services. Spouses* and dependents of faculty or staff that are not also employed at APSU are not eligible for services. *Spouses that only need to complete the employee insurance screening and biometrics form can receive that service here.


Eligible students can schedule an appointment by giving us a call at (931) 221-7107.

Hours of Operations

Nurse Practitioner

Please call 931-221-7107 to schedule an appointment in advance.


There is no charge to students for most office visits. Some visits, like annual exams, new contraceptive visits, and work/sports physicals are fee-based due to the time and lab testing involved.  However, patients will be charged for medications obtained through the in-house pharmacy, laboratory tests, procedures, and medical supplies necessary for treatment. These costs will be charged to your University Health Services account. Employees are charged an access fee of $15 per visit if seen in Health Services. Employees will be charged for medications, lab work, procedures, and medical supplies if applicable in the same manner as students.

Class Excuses

Medical excuses will not routinely be issued by Health Services for missed classes or examinations. Exceptions may be made for certain severe illnesses or hospitalizations. Please note that class absence policies – excused or unexcused – are at the discretion of the faculty member.
