The UC Irvine Student Health Center (SHC) is a comprehensive outpatient clinic staffed with licensed primary care physicians, psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, dentists, physician assistants, registered nurse practitioners, and registered nurses. Medical specialists from various disciplines including orthopedics/sports medicine, gynecology, and internal medicine provide on-site consultation on a regular basis. SHC utilizes health provider student trainees such as fellows, residents and/or student interns, in conjunction with licensed professionals, to deliver services to UCI students.
SHC also offers basic radiology and clinical laboratory services, insurance consultation, and an on-site pharmacy, making SHC a comprehensive and convenient clinic dedicated to serving students.
SHC provides medical, mental health and wellness services to all registered UC Irvine students regardless of insurance coverage. Most services are provided through scheduled appointments. However, walk-in and same day appointments for more urgent needs are also available.
All registered students are automatically enrolled in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). If you have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in UC SHIP, you must complete the waiver by the published deadlines. All SHC resources and services are also available to students who have waived UC SHIP.
