Newton-Wellesley Collegiate Health operates Health Services on campus and provides care to Wellesley College students. We are staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurses from Newton-Wellesley Hospital and can draw on the vast resources within the Partners HealthCare system to provide high quality healthcare.

We also collaborate closely with others on campus—in particular the Wellesley College Stone Center Counseling Services—to meet students’ health care needs. We also work closely with the Wellness Center, Nutrition/Dining services, Athletics, and Accessibility Services. These pre-entrance health forms will help us get to know you and better serve your health care needs.

Here you can find step-by-step instructions on how to complete your medical forms. Please complete each step in chronological order. 

Note: if you have received care previously in the Partners Network and already have a medical record number and Patient Gateway account, you can skip to Step 1. If you are unsure of this, please do not skip steps. 

Step 1: Call Health Services (M-F between 8:30 am and 5 pm EST)
  1. Identify yourself as an incoming student
  2. Our staff will help you register in the Newton-Wellesley Hospital system (which we are a part of). You will need to provide demographic and insurance information (if available). It should take 5-10 minutes. You must complete the step even if you have previously been treated in the Newton-Wellesley or Mass-General-Brigham Healthcare system. 

Registering does not obligate you to use our services, but will ensure you are able to access them should you need to

  1. Our staff will then help you set up and activate a Patient Gateway account (our online portal system). You will receive an activation code that does expire so please make sure you have 5-10 minutes to complete this step with us. You must have this activated to submit your incoming student forms.

Note: If you are unable to call Health Services due to an international phone or time zone restrictions, please email HealthMD@wellesley.edu to help with the above.
