Student Health Center and Pharmacy

The Student Health Center and Pharmacy (SHC) provides high-quality and easily accessible health care for University of Alabama students. Located at the corner of Peter Bryce Boulevard and 4th Street East and adjacent to the UA tennis courts, the SHC is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The SHC can meet most ambulatory medical needs of UA students, including women’s health, psychiatry, medical nutrition therapy, and allergy/immunization services as well as international-travel medical evaluations and prescription medications from any licensed practitioner. For convenience, students may make certain SHC appointments through the Patient Portal accessible through their MyBama account. Those requiring appointments with the in-house specialty services (psychiatry, dermatology and women’s health) should call the appointment line at 205-348-2778. Referral services for outside specialty medical services (i.e. gastroenterology, orthopedics, etc.) are made when needed with essential communication managed by referral nurses.
