All students must submit Medical Forms by April 15.

Medical Services and Student Health Insurance

Phillips Exeter Academy’s Lamont Health and Wellness Center offers a variety of health care services to Exeter Summer students. They are here to help students with health concerns of all types, minor and major, emotional and physical. The Lamont Health and Wellness Center is located on Tan Lane, behind the Phelps Science Center. Walk-in services are available from 7am - 8pm.  Emergency services are available at all times, with a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A physician is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as well. In addition, beds are available for daytime or overnight care.

General Medical Services

Students may seek health information, advice, and treatment by registering at the front desk of Lamont Health and Wellness Center. If possible, make your visit at the beginning of a free period. We do not want waiting room time to interfere with classes. If you are not well enough to attend class or other Academy appointments, you will be allowed to rest at the Health Center until you are feeling better. If your problem requires the attention of the physician, the nurse will either consult with the physician at that time, or schedule you for the soonest available physician appointment.


Most of the fees for off-campus treatments are covered by the Academy Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan, (see Plan brochure for details). For students opting out of the Academy Student Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan, parents will be responsible for any fees incurred not covered by private health insurance plans.

Prescriptions and Psychotropic Medications

Prescriptions and over the counter medications may be obtained through the Health Center and local pharmacy, as appropriate. We discourage the stocking of any medications in the dorm, and would like to be made aware of any prescription medications the students will be bringing to school. All psychotropic medications must be stored at the Health Center, and will be dispensed in weekly allotments. These medications include stimulants such as Vyvanse, Ritalin, Concerta, Strattera, and Adderall and antidepressant medications such as Wellbutrin, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, and Imipramine. This policy serves to protect all students. We require that individuals prescribed these medications inform us of their treatment and bring their medication to the Health Center at the beginning of Exeter Summer or at initiation of treatment. We are sensitive to issues of confidentiality and can assure students that their privacy will be respected.

Allergy Shots

All allergy shots will be administered through a local allergy clinic and require a first time MD visit set up by parents before the start of Exeter Summer. Students must bring any serum to the Lamont Health and Wellness Center upon arrival to campus to ensure that it is properly stored until their first appointment. Please call the Health Center at 603-777-3420 for more information about the Allergy Clinic, insurance coverage, and transportation.

Athletic Trainers/Sports Injuries 

The Athletic Training Center (ATC) is located on the ground level of Love Gymnasium, adjacent to the basketball courts and the ice hockey rinks. It functions as an extension of the Health and Wellness Center and is staffed by certified/licensed athletic trainers. Working under the direction of the school physician, the staff provides services for the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of orthopedic and sports-related injuries. When injuries do occur, the athletic trainers act as case managers and consult with the Medical Director or a fellowship-trained sports medicine orthopedist, as well as with coaches and parents as needed.
