I retired from a college student health centre a few years ago. It was a great job.  Upbeat atmosphere.  Mostly young, healthy patients.  Great benefits.  Academic schedule which can be a mixed bag.

The drawback was below market wages.  If you need the bucks this can be a problem, as well as having to scramble for hours during academic breaks.

If you're in a position to not need the best wages, I would highly recommend this line of work.

Yes.  Actually a lot of the illnesses and injuries in that population are related to their "invincibility".

Then there's the "I need help getting rid of this cold so I can party this weekend".
