Our walk-in clinic provides medical care for people who do not have a family doctor or have one and are unable to reach them. You can see a nurse or doctor, without an appointment, for a non urgent issue. Centrally located on the University of Ottawa campus, we are especially convenient for individuals who work or live downtown as we provide easy access to healthcare in a clean, modern and friendly environment.
How to Access
Walk-in services at the University of Ottawa Health Services (UOHS) are available to patients who meet one of the following criteria:
- *University of Ottawa and Saint Paul University students and staff.
- All patients, including Quebec residents, who are currently registered with a primary care provider at the UOHS
- Ontario residents
*Please remember to bring your valid student or staff ID when accessing UOHS services.
Patients can get advice, assessment and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including infection and rashes, emergency contraception, stomach upsets, cuts and bruises, and skin complaints.
The Walk-in Clinic is located at 100 Marie Curie Private (1st floor), at the corner of King Edward Avenue.
The Walk-in Clinic is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm
*Note: The Walk-in clinic is closed on Sundays from June to August, on December 25th and 26th and on January 1st. On recognized holidays we are open from 10am to 2pm.
There may be a waiting time to see the walk-in physician or nurse. If you have a family physician or nurse practitioner at UOHS, please call us before coming to the walk-in clinic. Your doctor may have an appointment slot free to see you the same day or the next.
Notify our reception staff when you arrive if you are here to see the nurse for an injection such as a flu shot, allergy shot, TB test or other injection. Since you will need to wait twenty minutes after an injection (in case of an adverse reaction), you will need to register with the walk-in reception staff at least 30 minutes before the clinic’s closing time.
There may be fees associated with your walk-in clinic visit (i.e. for uninsured services). Quebec patients are required to pay a fee at each visit. Consult our Fees page for more information.
NARCOTICS AND OTHER CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES WILL NOT BE RENEWED THROUGH OUR WALK-IN CLINIC.
These medications should be renewed by your family physician or their designate.
