Student Health and Wellness
Serving the students at UIC Health Sciences Campus Rockford including medicine, MBT, pharmacy and nursing
Student Health and Wellness at the UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford was created for students of the University of Illinois Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy and Nursing in Rockford in 2011.
Student Health and Wellness staff are committed to providing a safe, welcoming and affirming environment for all students. We commit ourselves to creating an environment based on values that allow our diverse student body to access care, receive high-quality services and take positive pathways to sound mental health.
We recognize that many factors – including culture, racial/ethnic identities, socioeconomic status, sex, gender, sexual orientation, political viewpoints, religious/spiritual and/or philosophical beliefs, and physical and cognitive abilities – are salient in students’ lives, and we are committed to welcoming all clients with respect and sensitivity.
Student Health and Wellness proudly offers a full range of family medicine services to all Medicine, Pharmacy, Medical Biotechnology and Nursing registered students. Students have access to a full range of primary care services, and the starting point for medical care covered by the UIC Student Health Fee. We encourage you to explore our clinic services and be an active part in your health and well-being.
