Student Wellness Program is an outpatient treatment facility for medical, dental and graduate students in need of psychiatric help. The service is not available to student's dependents. Dependents may, however, be seen in consultation. Treatment here refers primarily to relatively short-term restorative intervention in problems that may have arisen during a student's stay in school, and not to long-term, in-depth psychotherapy. When it is necessary to have further therapy on a long-term basis, the student will be referred to private care.

Under the Rutgers RBHS policy (Student/Housestaff Ombudspersons Policy), each Dean has appointed an ombudsperson as a designated, confidential resource for students and housestaff ("visitors") seeking information or solutions to problems. The unique nature of the ombudsperson is one of neutrality, impartiality and independence from the School's and University's established administrative structures. The ombudsperson for SGS-Biomedical Sciences, Newark Health Science campus is Dr. Christine Rohowsky-Kochan. Dr. Christine Rohowsky-Kochan's office is in the Medical Science Building, room H596. Her email address and phone number are firstname.lastname@example.org and (973) 972-7394. Learn more about ombudsperson and their role.
