The Student/Employee Health Department, responsible for student health and on-the-job employee injuries, is located in Room N-136. A Quick Care Clinic for UMMC employees and their immediate dependents is located on the second floor of the Lakeland Medical Building at 764 Lakeland Drive.
The hours or operation are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, except on official UMMC holidays.
If students or employees should become ill or sustain injury after normal workday hours, they are encouraged to seek care at UMMC's Emergency Department if necessary.
UMMC employees and their immediate families who need to see a physician for minor illnesses can get an appointment within 24 hours through Quick Care Clinic. Most patients will be seen the same day they call for an appointment.
The clinic, staffed by the Department of Family Medicine, handles common and acute illnesses, such as sore throat, earache, upper respiratory, urinary tract infections, flu and gastrointestinal infections as well as minor emergencies, such as sprains or rashes and yearly preventive medicine physicals. To schedule an appointment, employees should call 4-CARE (601 984-2273), a dedicated line through UMMC's Access Center. The clinic is located in the University Physicians Pavilion.
