Who are we?

UMD Health Services is a comprehensive health and wellness facility designed to meet the health care needs of today's college students. You can come to our clinic right here on campus for medical services you might otherwise go to your family practice clinic for at home. In addition to medical services, we offer free and confidential counseling appointments.  We also provide educational outreach  and wellness programs. The mission of our clinic and professional staff is to help students develop healthy personal lifestyles and to provide the services necessary to support academic success.

What services are available right now, during the pandemic?

During the pandemic our operations may have a changed a bit, but we are open from 8am-4pm, MTWF, and 9am-4pm on Thursdays.  No walk in appointments are being accepted at this time.  You must call Health Services to discuss your concerns/needs before entering the clinic.

When you come into the clinic, you will use the front door.

Physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses are available for medical appointments.  If you are taking 6+ credits, your medical consultations are free of charge (no co-pay!).  We do bill insurance for tests and procedures to include lab screenings, x-rays, and medical procedures.

Health education and wellness programs are provided for students of the UMD campus community.
