UHS wait

flu season

Students report
frustration with

Daily Staff Reporter
Despite reporting high over-
all patient satisfaction, Univer-
sity Health Service - the primary
health care center for the Univer-
sity's campus community - has
reported longer than average wait
times this semester, causing con-
cern for some students.
UHS Medical Director Rob-
ert Ernst, who has served as a
physician and administrator for
11 years, said waiting times this
semester have been particularly
lengthy due to understaffing
"I can tell you that wait time
for next available appointment
has been running more like a
week instead of 24 hours," Ernst

In today's interconnected
society, health issues in one
country are hardly problems for
that particular nation alone.

said. "That puts a lot of pressure
on same-day resources."
Currently, one physician is on
sabbatical, and a nurse practitio-
ner and a physician assistant have
left. This has put added strain on
remaining staff members, espe-
cially with the traditionally busy
cold and flu season approaching.
Engineering senior Kevin
Kacan said he observed such
understaffing in recent visits.
"They don't have enough nurs-
es to keep up with the demand for
allergy shots and immunizations,
so that's a problem," Kacan said.
"And as someone that pays tuition
to this University, it's frustrating
that the building itself is under-
staffed forthenumberofstudents

to go to hospitals and pay out-of-
pocket expenses."

who have had lengthy waiting
times at UHS.

University President
discusses issues of
diversity, sexual
assault on campus
Daily News Editor
The lunch fare was light but
the conversation was substan-
tive as students in the LSA
Honors Program were invited

to spend an hour dining and
engaging in a discussion with
University President Mark
Schlissel Tuesday afternoon.
Schlissel kicked off the event
by keeping the mood casual,
calling ita relief from talking to
alumni about football.
"I've been on the job for a
little over three months, my
first 100 days was sometime last
week, and things were going
absolutely great until I realized
we have a football team who
people pay a lot of attention to,

and then it started going less
great," he said with a laugh.
In an interview with The
Michigan Daily after the event,
Schlissel added that he loves
football, but feels that the team
having a bad year can often
drown out all of the other activi-
ties around campus. He added
that he was surprised about the
extent to which people are pas-
sionate about hot issues in ath-
He also said he's been in dis-
cussion with presidents of com-

parable universities and that the
campus cultures are similar in
regards to the role of athletics.
At the lunch, Schlissel
detailed some of his life expe-
riences that culminated in'his
nomination as the 14th president
of the University, including his
studies as an undergraduate at
Princeton University followed by
medical school and a doctorate at
The Johns Hopkins University.
