Student Health Services

Primary Care Physicians

Each student is assigned to a primary care physician (PCP) who is a faculty member in the Department of Family and Community Medicine. Students are encouraged to utilize their PCPs for all acute or chronic health problems for which they might not normally wish to visit Employee Health Services.

The earlier hour availability at the Employee Health Services Acute Care Clinic might allow students to be seen for acute care problems prior to the beginning of their daily classes or clerkship rotations.

Employee Health’s nursing services are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 7 am to 4:30 pm, Thursday from 7 am to 3:30 pm.

Walk-ins are accepted from 7 am to 10 am dependent on volume of persons requesting to be seen. (First come/first served and may deny walk-in visits past 9 am if high volume). Scheduled appointments from 10 am until closing. Call 716-4801 to make an appointment. 

Problems may be referred to the PCP at the discretion of Employee Health.
