Wellness Services

Academic stress is normal, but you may feel you need to speak with a professional to help support your wellbeing.

Taking your first step towards reaching your wellness goals shows strength and bravery. However, it can sometimes feel overwhelming! You might ask, “Where do I begin?”

STEP 1

We have created two avenues for you to begin your wellness journey. Choose option A or B below:

Your Academic Success Advisor is here to help you with your first steps toward wellness. Please email healthservices@algomau.ca to make an appointment with your advisor.

STEP 2

A member of the Wellness Team will reach out to you and schedule an appointment to create a Wellness Model that works for you.

What is a Wellness Model?
The multidisciplinary Wellness Team at Algoma University provides a selection of Wellness Models that are thoughtfully designed with an individual’s need, comfort level, accessibility, and safety in mind. From frequency of care to model of care, we will discuss what services might be most beneficial for you, based on your presenting Wellness needs.

Medical Services
Sault Ste. Marie On-Campus Medical Clinic

Caring for our students is the number one reason we are here on campus.

Student Health Services is an appointment-based medical clinic for all registered part-time and full-time students at Algoma University. This service is now open 1/2 day once a week. No walk-ins are available, appointments can be made by emailing doctor@algomau.ca

Please visit the Emergency Room at the Sault Area Hospital or call 911 if you are experiencing an emergency health situation.

 

How to schedule an appointment

The doctor is on campus once per week. Students are encouraged to arrange scheduled appointments as drop-ins may not be accommodated at all times. The email address is for booking appointments only. Clinical questions will not be answered via email. Email: doctor@algomau.ca

What to bring with you to your appointment

All students must bring their health card and/or insurance information to each appointment. Students must also bring all of their medications to each appointment – even renewals – to ensure that the physician knows exactly what you are taking and how often.
