Health and Medical Services
The Counseling & Health Center provides low-cost medical services such as physical or reproductive health exams, immunizations, lab testing and wellness consultations to Clark students. Our Advanced Medical Practitioner, Dr. Evelyn Buschur, ND, can help you if you are sick or injured, and prescribe medications if needed. Appointments are usually required to see the medical practitioner.
We also have free self-care items such as pain relievers, allergy and cold medicines, cough drops, menstrual supplies and condoms available in our front office.
If you do not see the service you need on the list below, please ask us! If we are unable to provide a service, we may be able to refer you to a community agency that can. The prices listed are subject to change due to increases in lab service or supply costs, but we are committed to providing health care at the lowest cost possible. If you are unable to pay for medical services, please contact us and we may be able to connect you with patient assistance programs that can lower your costs even more.
If you are uninsured, but interested in learning how you might apply for free or low-cost health insurance coverage, please get in touch.
About Dr. Evelyn Buschur, ND
Dr. Evelyn Buschur was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Shortly after her birth, her father began a career in the US Coast Guard. Due to the frequency of relocations associated with the military, Evelyn has lived throughout the USA. The family spent 3 years in Hawaii, where Evelyn “discovered” Hawaiian folk remedies for various illnesses.
As a child, Evelyn wanted to be a scientist or a doctor. While attending the University of Maine, Evelyn concentrated on becoming a scientist. She worked in various labs on “soft” grant money. The sporadic nature of grants led Evelyn to concentrate instead on medical school. However, watching her brother try to regain his health in a hospital setting helped Evelyn to realize that conventional medicine was not for her. During this time of reflection, she re-discovered “folk remedies,” and found naturopathic medicine. Evelyn graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in biochemistry and moved to Portland, Oregon to attend Naturopathic Medical School.
Upon graduation from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Buschur began her practice in Portland, Oregon. She started teaching at Portland Community College in 2006, and at Clark College in 2016. In 2015, Dr. Buschur moved her practice to Camas, Washington. Dr. Buschur stopped teaching at Clark College to become the Advanced Medical Practitioner for Clark College's Health Center.

Although most social distancing and masking restrictions have been lifted, Covid-19 is still spreading throughout our communities. Please continue to stay home if you are experiencing symptoms. Masks are no longer required on campus, or in our office, however we ask that you please wear one if you are feeling sick, even if your symptoms are not covid-related. We have disposable masks available if you need one when you visit us.

In response to Roe V. Wade being overturned.
Here at the CHC, we believe in the right of all students to access appropriate, safe, confidential health services. We also believe that students have the right to comprehensive, scientifically accurate information about their medical options so they can make informed decisions about their healthcare.
The repeal of Roe v. Wade, which provided federal protection of abortion rights, has caused many in our community to feel concerned about their access, or lack thereof, to safe and legal abortion services. Washington State recognizes that all people have the right to choose or refuse to have an abortion and requires state-regulated health plans that cover maternity services to cover abortion services. In Washington, people of any age have the right to independently consent for their own abortion care.
If you have questions about your reproductive health including birth control, abortion, pregnancy, pre-natal care, fertility, or STI screening, please get in touch to schedule an appointment with our Doctor. If you need to be connected to resources outside of Clark we can help with that too.
Additionally, we provide free condoms, a clean and private space for lactating parents to nurse or pump, and emergency contraception (Plan B) in our office. This is available any time our office is open.
