Student Health

All UIC students pay a student services fee, and this fee pays for access to preventive and acute healthcare services provided by the Department of Family Medicine at their two clinics on Maxwell Street at no additional charge. It is important for students to realize that the student services fee does not cover all visits to Family Medicine. Care for ongoing medical problems will be covered by your private insurance or by CampusCare if you selected CampusCare for your health benefits.

Call 312.996.2901 for an appointment.
If you need to contact a physician after office hours, please call the above number, and an operator will put you in touch with the physician on call.
