Clinic Services

Welcome to University of Victoria Health Services!

As a student, you are encouraged to use University Health Services (UHS) as your primary point of medical/health care while registered at university, especially, if you do not have a family physician in Victoria. You can choose a consistent physician/practitioner for ongoing care; we do however work closely as a team, so any practitioner can help you if your regular doctor is not available. We encourage you to name UVic Health Services as your primary care clinic if you go to hospital, lab or x-ray departments, and results will be forwarded here to your medical record.

The UHS team is committed to providing you with quality health care throughout your studies at UVic. Our physicians, nurses, specialists, practitioner partners and office staff work collaboratively to address a full range of student health concerns. We are sensitive to your needs and see health as the foundation for academic success and a life well lived. We encourage you to involve your family or partner in your health care. Where desired, UHS will work with you and your loved ones to support your care.
