Appointment Information

Students are seen by appointment at Student Health.  Same Day appointments are available depending on demand and time of day.  Contacting Student Health as early as possible is the best way to maximize your chance of getting a same day appointment.  If none are available, students will be assessed by one of our triage nurses and provided with an appropriate plan of care.  This may consist of guidance on how to manage symptoms at home and/or being scheduled in the next available appointment, emergency expedited care, or referral to an off-campus treatment center. We will always do our best to work in patients with acute illnesses and injuries. 

Students with more urgent medical situations who cannot wait until the next available appointment time may be referred to a local Duke Urgent Care clinic or the Duke Emergency Department.
