St. Augustine University of Tanzania has a Dispensary which is responsible to both staff and students, for the students the University is not responsible for studentsí insurance against sickness or accident. However, it is advisable for a student to insure against such risks unless the sponsor suggests otherwise. Also, consultation with a private medical practitioner is the studentsí responsibility.
Normally, if taken ill, students, and members of staff and their families, are treated at the University Dispensary, which is manned by a Medical Officer and qualified nurses. Emergency or complicated cases requiring a specialistís attention are referred to Sekou-Toure government hospital, Bugando Medical Centre, or another hospital. It is understood that such services are wholly at the studentsí expense. Under no circumstances should the University be called upon to pay medical bills from any hospital or medical practioner.
