Primary Medical Clinic

Our outpatient services offer more medical solutions than other local community clinics, and better meet the needs of our diverse campus. Board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners are available to treat both acute and chronic illnesses/injuries. Our medical clinic offers many services including minor office surgical procedures, IV fluids, wound care, laceration repair, evaluation/treatment of orthopedic injuries and more. We also offer routine wellness physical exams, screening for infectious diseases, integrated behavioral health and dietitian counseling.

If you are currently being treated by a medical specialist from your community, we can assist you with a referral to a local specialist.

 

Women’s Health Clinic

With the unique needs of each woman in mind, our Women's Clinic offers comprehensive and personalized health care for our female patients using best practices and evidence-based guidelines.

Women’s health care involves much more than routine breast exams, pelvic exams and pap smears, which is why our professional staff partners with you to ensure you have the care and support you need. Our women’s health providers are available to discuss contraceptive options including long-acting, reversible contraceptives. We do not provide prenatal care, but can assist with local referrals.

 

Allergy, Immunization & Travel Clinic

The AIT Clinic assists students with required immunizations, TB testing and other screenings required by graduate programs or clinical assignments. As public health advocates, we partner closely with county, state and national health departments to prevent the spread of disease through education and advocacy.

If you are currently receiving allergy desensitization and need to continue with your injections, we can collaborate with your allergist to provide injections. We do not offer allergy testing, but can assist with a referral to a local specialist.

The AIT Clinic also administers a variety of immunizations including those needed for foreign travel. We also offer convenient walk-in hours for flu vaccines each season.

With record numbers of students traveling abroad, the AIT Clinic provides advice on health and safety conditions for several countries. Our pre-travel consultations include vaccination recommendations and infectious disease prophylactic measures. As is appropriate, travel immunizations are administered and advice about medications when traveling are provided.

 

Nutrition Services

As a part of the student health fee, students can meet with a registered dietitian and review their nutritional needs. Our dietitian offers educational and therapeutic options for students striving to improve underlying medical conditions and their overall health and well-being. 

 

Orthopedic Services

While the Pat Walker Health Center primary care medical providers treat a broad spectrum of orthopedic conditions, your provider may refer you to our orthopedic specialist. The student health fee supports this service. 

 

The health center is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment for patients and staff. We recognize patients can find some consultations, examinations, or procedures distressing, and may prefer to have a chaperone present for support.

Chaperones are available to all patients, and signs are posted in all exam rooms to let patients know they can request one at any time during their visit.
