Sexual Assault Nurse Exam (SANE)

Student Health Services is committed to taking an active stance in survivor-focused health care and offers a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) to support any student, regardless of gender identity, who is a survivor of sexual assault.  By offering exams, sexual assault survivors can be in familiar surroundings with a caring clinician.  Survivors can continue seeing a Student Health Services clinician for any other health exam as well, allowing for a continuum of care for the survivor that includes sensitivity to their experience.
