Services

 

The Auburn University Medical Clinic (AUMC) provides primary and preventive care to students, faculty, staff and members of the surrounding community of Auburn University. Acute care is provided by the Medical Clinic's staff of board certified physicians, certified registered nurse practitioners, certified physician assistants, and our team of supporting colleagues. Our health care providers have access to a wide range of specialists and emergency services when necessary. We are here to serve you and are committed to maintaining high quality of care standards in a confidential, convenient, caring professional setting.  Your comments regarding the quality of our service are appreciated and we strive to continually improve our service.

The Auburn University Medical Clinic promotes the concept of individual "wellness" in contrast to a traditional status quo approach to holistic health. Our approach is to assist you with opportunities to develop yourself in social, physical, intellectual, career, emotional and spiritual dimensions of your life. Using these 6 categories, we offer the acronym "SPICES" as the model for the areas in which you can actively address personal wellness!    

 

Acute/Urgent Care

Our team of providers is experienced in treating your common medical problems, including minor surgery, suturing of lacerations and removal of ingrown toe nails. We are equipped to treat you with intravenous fluids and medications including antibiotics (when medically appropriate), thereby hastening your recovery and many times avoiding a stay in the hospital. We are interested in helping you stay healthy and active. After hours, please call toll free 1-866-389-6770.

Allergy Services

We have on site allergy testing services available. Also, if you are receiving immunotherapy, you may also receive allergy shots by using the antigen supplied by your allergist along with a copy of the injection instructions. Your allergy serum needs to be mailed to 400 Lem Morrison Drive, Auburn University, AL 36849-5349.

Immunizations

To register upon admission to Auburn University as well as traveling to some countries you will be required to demonstrate protection against some communicable diseases (e.g., measles, mumps, and rubella). This requires vaccination, physician certification of disease or blood tests showing evidence of immunity. If you do not comply, you may have difficulty in registering or entering a foreign country. We do offer these vaccines for a fee.

We have a convenient on site CLIA certified laboratory with licensed medical technologists who can perform some routine tests before completion of your visit.
