Student Health at Michigan Avenue Immediate Care

Our physicians and staff understand the unique health care needs of students. We have extensive experience providing care for students in what is known as Chicago’s “Loop University” and offer convenient hours to fit student schedules.
Whether you are needing the required school immunizations, concerned about having a cold that may be going around a dorm or maybe a sinus infection that has returned, have a minor laceration from a school project, have injured yourself during a dance rehearsal, or just needing to see a doctor because your Primary Care Physician is states away, we provide comprehensive student health services and as needed, we coordinate follow-up care and/or refer to specialists.
