Health Center

Health & Wellness

The Health Center staff at Academic City provide basic primary care to all students. The nursing team is available during working hours for health counselling, evaluation, and treatment of common medical concerns. For medical care beyond the scope of practice of the Student Health Center, students are referred to the local clinic in Haatso where physicians are available to attend to our students.

Hours of Operation: 8am to 6pm - Mondays to Fridays

ACity Health Vault

ACity HealthVault is an in-house built custom application that empowers the Health Center to safely store and maintain health records and vaccination history for all students. The application allows our nurses to log visits by students and staff, and store parent or guardian contact information for easy access in case of any health emergencies. Similarly, the HealthVault can quickly bring a physician up to speed on a student’s medical history and recently prescribed medication.
