Our mission is to respond effectively to the most pressing needs of the University's students. It is consistent with the mission of the Division of Student Affairs by providing comprehensive programs to assist University of North Florida's diverse student population in their achievement of maximum health.
Appointment Policy UpdateWe are asking that all patients show up at least 10 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to allow time for any paper work that might be required. With more students living on campus, we expect the clinic to be busier than ever. With that in mind, we will no longer be able to offer a 10 minute grace period. If you are not on time for your appointment you will be asked to reschedule and it is quite possible that our schedules might be full and you will have to reschedule for another day. So please keep this in mind and plan accordingly.
When unable to keep an appointment, please be sure to call and cancel. A $10 fee will be imposed for scheduled appointments, which were “no show” and not canceled.
Reminder Ladies: Gynecological annual exam appointments are normally scheduled two weeks in advance. Urgent care for GYN will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
