Medical Clinic Updates
The Medical clinic is currently seeing patients Virtually. If you would like to book an appointment we ask that you please email us at: email@example.com. If you wish to leave a voice message please note that messages are only checked a few times a day, so the quickest way to connect with our clinic is by email. We are booking appointments Monday - Fridays and there is not a long waitlist. Once your appointment is scheduled you will be given a link to connect with the doctor for your scheduled appointment time.
For the latest information on COVID-19 and the impacts to TRU, please visit tru.ca/covid19.
Call 250-828-5126 or drop in to make an appointment.
Location: Old Main – Lower Level (Room OM 1461)
Hours: Monday to Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (no lunch closure).
The clinic is closed for four weeks in late July and August and re-opens the week prior to the start of classes.
The TRU Medical Clinic serves registered students who require medical support during their time studying in Kamloops. Appointments are required as we are not a drop-in clinic. We ask students that already have a doctor in Kamloops to call that doctor’s office to make an appointment.
TRU staff and faculty are encouraged to use local walk-in clinics, as the clinic is intended for students who are not from Kamloops and so do not have a local family doctor. New TRU faculty and staff should be making every attempt to find a local, on-going medical care as soon as they begin their employment. We may be able to fill some gaps on a short-term basis, but our priority is to serve students.
