The Student Health Center operates primarily on an appointment system, so appointments are always recommended and encouraged. However, in order to assure that all urgent matters can be handled on a same-day basis, the SHC also offers an Acute Care Clinic.  Similar to an Emergency Room, the waits tend to be longer, as patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis after being assessed by a nurse for seriousness of illness. Patients with serious illness or injuries will always be triaged to the front of the line.  Click here for more information on how to be seen at the SHC.

The primary care appointment number is 615-322-2427.  We also offer online scheduling at
