Student Health Services

The McGill Student Health Clinic is a busy place. Look online for other options, otherwise, plan on arriving 20-30mins before scheduled opening time for an appointment that day.

If you get sick, or injured, this is the on campus clinic.  It is a busy place, so in order to get an appointment, you plan on arriving 15-20mins before doors open that day.  Otherwise, it will be 3 weeks or more to see a doctor there.  There are other off-campus clinics available to you that will certainly have less wait, but may require additional costs.
