Boarding has a team of nurses who reside on campus; this ensures that someone is available 24/7. If a student is sick during the day, then the student can remain in the boarding clinic where the on-duty nurse will monitor them.
On occasion our students do need to make a hospital visit. When this occurs, a member of staff will generally accompany the student to their appointment. Parents are notified by the Nursing staff or a Senior member of the boarding staff, usually by email. If the hospital visit is of an urgent nature, parents will be contacted immediately. Any student who is admitted to hospital for an overnight stay is accompanied by a boarding staff member. There are several excellent hospitals in Chiang Mai. We have included their websites and phone numbers for your information.
