About

Student Health Care Since 1967

The University Health Centre has been providing services to students since 1967, when the U of L began operations.

The Health Centre exists to provide a safe place to deal with health concerns. Health encompasses our physical self, our emotional self, our intellectual self, our social self and our spiritual self. At the Health Centre, our physicians, our psychiatrists, our nursing staff, and our support staff all focus on your health issues. See Clinic Schedule.

Over the years we have expanded from a centre that provides basic health care, to a clinic offering a full spectrum of health care services to all students including landed immigrants and international students. In 2008 we extended our client base to include limiitted access to faculty and staff.

In accordance with the University of Lethbridge Strategic Plan we form an integral part of the Campus Plan with the following mandates:

  • Medical Clinic Services (On-Campus Physician appointments to deal with any health concern)
  • Assistance to students with understanding and connecting to provincial health insurance assistance
  • Mental Health assistance through a team of administrative staff, nurse, dietitian, behaviourist, physicians and Psychiatrists (Physicians with extra training in mental health/illness concerns)
  • Communicable Disease Management
  • Health education to the community

Further, the Health Centre shares support tp the community with other departments such as Counselling Services, Accommodation Learning Centre, Student Success Centre, Chaplain, etc.  See Campus Partners. Contact Us.
