The Student Health Center operates primarily on an appointment system, so appointments are always recommended and encouraged. However, in order to assure that all urgent matters can be handled on a same-day basis, the SHC also offers an Acute Care Clinic. Similar to an Emergency Room, the waits tend to be longer, as patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis after being assessed by a nurse for seriousness of illness. Patients with serious illness or injuries will always be triaged to the front of the line.
The primary care appointment number is 615-322-2427. Unfortunately, the current scheduling system shared by the Student Health Center and the Vanderbilt University Medical Center does not allow for on-line scheduling. Learn more about our primary care and specialty services.
The mental health appointment number is 615-322-3414. Mental health appointments are provided by the Psychological and Counseling Center.
