UA Medical Services
At the Campus Health Service, same day care is available for UA patients with urgent medical needs during regular Campus Health hours.
A clinical staff member is on duty to evaluate each patient's problem. Acute problems are seen in order of urgency. If necessary, providers will make referrals to an urgent care center or, if appropriate, an emergency room. If the medical problem is not urgent, patients may be asked to return for an appointment or be seen in the order in which they arrived.
If you need urgent medical advice when Campus Health is closed, call the “After Hours” number at (520) 570-7898. A medical provider is always on call. They can help you decide if a problem can wait to be seen at Campus Health, or if it requires a trip to Urgent Care or to an emergency room.

Important Note: Medical providers are legally mandated to report treatment of material injury (injuries which are disclosed or discovered through examination or are suspected to have resulted from illegal or unlawful acts) to law enforcement.
What this means: If you speak with a medical provider about being sexually assaulted or physically harmed during an unlawful act, the medical provider must report this to law enforcement.
However, do not hesitate to seek medical attention due to this. You do not have to make a report to law enforcement or comply with an investigation unless you want to. You can refuse to speak with law enforcement. You can refuse to give any other information about the offender or crime.
If you have questions or concerns about this you can contact the Oasis Program. The Oasis Program is a confidential source for discussing your options.
