A sound mind in a sound body
The University of Rennes 1 encourages its students to be fully aware of their health and gives them all necessary means to preserve it through a dedicated department, the SIMMPS.
First-year students are required to take a medical examination at their arrival at University.
All students can request a medical examination at any time throughout their curriculum, for example in order to obtain a certificat médical (certificate of fitness to practice sport).
In addition to medical examinations, students can also request specific consultations:
- smoking cessation.
Students can ask the SIMMPS for all prescribed vaccinations and nursing services: dressings, injections, blood pressure measurement, etc.
Beginning one's higher education represents a major step. To help you cope with your new challenges, a team made of a psychiatrist and several psychologists is available to counsel all students of the University.
A partnership between the University of Rennes 1 and the specialized center Guillaume Régnier allows the students to have a place where people let them talk and listen to them.
