Student Health Appointments

To schedule an appointment, please call (773) 702-4156. Phones are answered until half an hour before closing time . If your situation cannot wait until business hours, please review information about Urgent/Emergency Care.

SHS is an appointment-based clinic, no longer a walk-in clinic. We offer same day appointments as well as routine visit appointments. If you choose to walk-in for an appointment we will do our best to fit you into the schedule. However same day appointments are prioritized based on urgency, so you may be scheduled for an appointment at a later time. Students can establish a primary care provider with one of our physicians or nurse practioners. During business hours if you have an urgent medical need you will be assessed and scheduled for same day or future appointment.  We encourage you to call first to schedule an appointment or to obtain advice if you are unsure if your medical need is urgent. You may call to make an appointment for issues such as birth control, women's care, physicals, travel medicine, sexually transmitted infection screenings, and immunizations. Travel visits, routine physical exams or gynecological appointments are generally scheduled 3-4 weeks in advance for physicals/routine gynecological exams/consultations and 4-6 weeks for travel consultations.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. If you are late for your appointment you may be asked to reschedule. Most appointments generally take one hour from check-in to check-out, so allow yourself plenty of time when you are planning your visit to SHS. If you require x-rays or another procedure, your visit may take additional time.
