When you turn 18 years old, the medical profession has a legal and ethical responsibility to protect your privacy. That means that EVERY visit you have is strictly confidential and that information about your visit will not be released to ANYONE without your written permission. Information will be released without your consent only in matters of law or public health.
There are two ways to access medical care at the Medical Center Main Campus (MCMC):
1. Schedule an appointment by calling the Student Clinic or Employee Clinic number (below). If you are unable to keep your appointment, it is important to call at least two hours prior to your appointment time. This courtesy will allow others the opportunity to use your appointment time. You may also walk in and you will be given the first available appointment.

Many students, especially those whose permanent home is out-of-town, use the MCMC
as their primary care facility. This means that they make appointments to be seen
for illness and injuries as they occur throughout their college stay. Our professional
staff is available to meet a variety of health care needs. If the student's health
care provider has diagnosed a student with an illness or injury which requires specialty
care, our office can make the appropriate referrals as a convenience to the student.
If you are a female student, you may want to take advantage of the services offered at the MCMC. These services include annual and initial gynecological examinations (PAP tests); testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STD's); urinary tract infections; pregnancy testing; and birth control methods and counseling.
Mental Health Services
Main Campus Medical Center has a psychiatrist and a liscensed counselor on staff to provide mental health services to students. Counseling and medication evaluation and management are available.
UT Outpatient Pharmacy (530-3471) operates much like your neighborhood pharmacy. We accept prescriptions from our doctors as well as doctors from the "outside." Prescriptions can be phoned in to our pharmacy (to save you a commute), or we can call a prescription in to the pharmacy of your choice. The pharmacy accepts a considerable number of prescription drug cards. Call if you have a question about whether or not your prescription drug card will be accepted. Please make sure you have a copy of your card with you when you come in.
The pharmacy is equipped with voice mail. You may wish to call in a prescription after
hours. If so, please follow the prompts on the voice mail regarding your name and
prescription information. Our pharmacist will get your prescription ready for you
to pick up first thing the following work day. This service is available for established
prescriptions only. Initial prescriptions must be called in by the physician's office,
or transferred from another pharmacy.
Another service we are pleased to offer is our laboratory service. If a medical provider is ordering a lab test, you don't even have to leave the building! If our lab does not process the test you are having performed, our reference laboratory will generally have the results delivered to your physician within 24-48 hours. The laboratory is able to perform laboratory tests using "outside" orders. If your medical provider at home wants you to get lab work done, and it is more convenient to do it here, please bring in a lab order and we can do the testing here. It is more convenient for you to call first to find out the best time to come. On certain days, and during certain times of the year, our laboratory can experience a back-up and you may experience a wait.
Immunization and Allergy Injection Clinic
Do you get an allergy shot every week (or even twice a week)? Yes? If so, you may be interested in our allergy injection clinic ... especially if you travel home two to three hours each way ... just to get a shot! Working with you and your allergist, we will store your serum at the MCMC and administer your allergy injections for a nominal fee. If we can assist you with this service, please call our office for information on how to set this up with your allergist.
We also provide other injections and immunizations, such as meningitis vaccinations, tuberculosis skin tests, tetanus shots, MMR vaccinations, etc.
The Injection Clinic operates on an appointment basis. You can make an appointment
by calling 530-3451.
Free, confidential HIV/AIDS testing is available at the MCMC. This service is provided by Substance Abuse Services, Inc (SASI). You DO NOT need to be a registered student to use this service. To make your confidential appointment, please call the MCMC appointment line: 530-3451.
