What if I have an urgent health problem after regular clinic hours?

Emergency consultation services (615-322-2427) are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the regular school sessions. On-call nurse practitioners and physicians take phone calls from home (not on site at SHC), to assist students and RA’s in making decisions about acute or urgent illnesses, injuries, and the use of emergency services.

The Student Health Center does not have an infirmary. Patients requiring observation after hours because they are too ill to return to the residence halls, will be observed and/or treated at the Vanderbilt Emergency Department.
