The Health Risk Assessment Program that appraises students’ overall health upon entrance and provides training on the benefits of health maintenance is overseen by the IDC.

Health facilities on the campus are available to military students; their families’ health services are available at Naval Health Clinic New England and the Newport Hospital.
