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!
We provide primary, preventive, and urgent care to students, faculty, staff and members of the surrounding community of Auburn University. Care is provided by our team of fully licensed and board-certified/eligible physicians, certified/registered nurse practitioners, certified physician assistants, and supporting staff. 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 always appreciated, and we strive to continually improve our service.
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 interested in helping you stay healthy and active. If you need assistance after hours, please call our toll-free nurse hotline at 866-389-6770.

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 (MMR)].
