About Us

reception areaWe are the Northern Michigan University Health Center, providing care to students and staff as well as their spouses and eligible dependents.  Please advise as you approach graduation or if you won't be enrolled in the next semester, so we can assist in transitioning your care with a new provider.  In the event a student is no longer enrolled, or suspended from the university, we will assist in getting your records coordinated to your new provider, please be respectful that you are no longer eligible for our services, we need to be available for eligible students and staff only.  Services include our clinic, on-site pharmacy and lab services. 

The center offers a wide variety of services, similar to those offered by a family doctor—from treatment for acne, colds or sprained ankles to annual physical and gynecological exams to HIV/AIDS testing, allergy shots or diabetes care. Referrals to specialists are also available.

 

The center is staffed by a dedicated clinical staff, our Medical Director is a board-certified physician in family practice.
