The Association serves as a forum in which members can discuss matters relevant to the provision, quality and effective management of student health care. It provides the opportunity to share ideas, discuss issues of common interest, and communicate best clinical practice relative to student health care.

Our members are drawn from the many different professions which contribute to medical care in the specialised field of higher education. GPs, practice nurses, occupational health specialists, practice managers and administrators are all well represented within The Student Health Association.

The organisation was established in 1951.
