Health Profile

Accepted students and parents/guardians will receive a "Welcome Email" from CampDoc.com with account setup instructions.

CampDoc.com is an electronic health record system we use to consolidate and integrate student health information into a centralized and secure location. This system gives our nurses instant access to student health information. The security, confidentiality and privacy of your personal health information will always be protected.

Every accepted student must complete her health profile by June 15. A completed health profile includes:

  • Medical Examination form completed by a physician. Examination is acceptable when performed no more than 12 months prior to your arrival at Smith.
  • TB risk assessment completed by you and your physician.
  • If applicable, current and accurate prescribed medication profile.
  • Accurate allergy information (if you have an EpiPen you need to list it in the medication profile).

Getaways are optional weekend trips that do not have an academic focus. Unlike field trips, which are included in the program, getaways require a separate fee.

Travel

Buses run almost hourly between Springfield and Northampton. Smith is a 10-minute walk or a short taxi ride from the bus station. Call 413-586-1030 for bus schedules.

By Train

Amtrak's Vermonter stops in Northampton. Smith is a short taxi ride from the train platform. For more information, visit Amtrak's website or call 800-872-7245.

By Airplane

Bradley International Airport (BDL), located in Windsor Locks, Conn., is the only airport for which we will be providing transportation to campus. We are unable to assume responsibility for unaccompanied minors.

Please note the specific times for this service and plan your travel accordingly. Smith shuttles will only pick up students at assigned time slots. If the assigned times create a conflict, students should contact an outside transportation service, which the student must pay for. See the "By Air" section on the Visiting Smith page for a list of outside transportation services.

The shuttle to and from Bradley International Airport is $30 ($60 roundtrip).
