Maple is a virtual care platform that supports the medical needs of Augustana Campus students by allowing them to connect with a general practitioner online via text, audio or video. Online medical consultations work just like in-person appointments. Discuss your medical concern with a general practitioner who will ask questions and complete a visual exam to determine the best treatment plan. Though many issues can be addressed virtually some do require a more physical hands on assessment in which case the general practitioner can provide some guidance and direct you accordingly. Through Maple, providers can provide medical advice, prescriptions, referrals and order tests if medically appropriate and at their discretion.

Ongoing Activities 


Peer Support Centre (North Campus)

The Peer Support Centre (PSC) is a Students' Union service that offers a free, confidential, and non-judgmental place to talk to someone for support. No issue is too big or too small. Our trained volunteers offer peer support, crisis management, information and resources, as well as a safe and confidential place to talk. Appointments available in languages other than English.
