UVa/Health System ID

Students are required to wear their Health System ID badges whenever they are in the the University of Virginia School of Medicine and in clinical areas. A patient has a right to know the name and status of the various people participating in his/her care. The Health System ID is also required to enter certain buildings during the day and after 5 pm and on weekends.

The Health System ID can serve as the UVA ID at athletic and cultural events.

Replacement IDs

For replacement of Health System IDs, first get a replacement form from Student Affairs and then take the signed form and a photo ID to the Security Office. Phone: 924-5048. There is a fee charged for lost IDs.


Problems with Card-Readers

Go to the Security Office (1st floor, West Complex) and have them check your magnetic strip.
