University Health Centre

Your Visit To the Health Centre

Most of our services operate on a drop-in basis with some limited appointments available. Health faculty immunizations, obstetrics and gynecology, nutrition consultations, and podiatry are available by appointment only. 

Do You Have Coverage?

At every visit to the Health Centre, we ask to see proof of your health care coverage, whether it is the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan or the University of Alberta Health Insurance Plan.


Exam Deferrals

Sometimes unexpected illnesses happen and we have to miss something important like a final exam. Know your rights and responsibilities if you miss a final exam, midterm, or term work due to incapacitating illness.

Convenient On-Campus Health Clinic

Whether you are feeling unwell or it’s time for a regular check-up, the physicians and nurses at the University Health Centre are here to help and to answer any questions you have relating to your health.
