One of the first places that incoming students discover with the onset of flu season is Yale University Health Services, more commonly known as DUH because it used to be called the Department of Undergraduate Health. The Yale Health Plan covers many services, including urgent visit, Yale’s equivalent to the emergency room, and Mental Hygiene, a useful counseling center for students. If students opt for the entire insurance package from YHP, they are covered for everything from neurology to dermatology. YUHS is also well known for providing care to students in need of hospital assistance after evenings of heavy drinking.
