Confidentiality

Once you become 18 years old, as a student of the University of Virginia you have the right to privacy and confidentiality regarding your medical care.

Your medical records will be kept confidential and access to information about you will be limited to those legitimately involved in your care. Your medical records will be released only in cases of medical emergencies, in response to court-ordered subpoenas or to persons you specify with your written consent.

Please be sure to discuss this issue with your parents. Unless you give permission in writing or by telephone, we are not allowed to divulge information to anyone, including your parents, about your care.
