University Health Centre

COVID-19 Update:

 We know this is a difficult and stressful time for both University students and staff. UHC is still open to help you through virtual care services (ie. phone call from a physician) with reduced in-person staffing. Drop-in service and online booking for in-person appointments have been discontinued, as per the College of Physicians and Surgeons' Public Health recommendations for medical clinics.  In-person visits are limited to those medical concerns a physician determines cannot be managed on the phone.  

  • If you have medical concerns (including chronic and/or ongoing health conditions), please submit our Google Form for service and we will follow-up with a phone call from one of our physicians (during regular business hours only).  
  • If you have a previously scheduled appointment, you will be contacted to determine whether you should come to the clinic or if alternate arrangements should be made.
  • If you are ill with influenza-like symptoms/possible COVID-19:  
    • You should immediately self-isolate. 
    • Complete the COVID-19 self-assessment here and follow the instructions provided. 
  • You must be in the province of Alberta to have a virtual visit with a UHC physician due to provincial regulations.
  • If you have questions about using the Google form, please contact UHC at

The team at UHC are following social distancing measures as recommended by public health officials. Most staff are working remotely and as such we have limited capacity to answer phone calls. Unless you are returning a phone call from a UHC team member, please complete the Google form and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
