First Aid

Note: All medical, psychological and other campus emergencies should be immediately reported to University Police. To contact University Police: call ‘911’ from a campus phone; call (323) 343-3700 from a cell phone; or use the closest emergency phone (“blue light,” non-dial, outdoor emergency phone).

First aid is defined as one-time treatment that typically does not require a physician, laboratory, X-ray, or pharmacy services (e.g., bandaid, ice pack). First aid services are administered through the Nurse Clinic.

Express Care Clinic

This option is for those with severe or acute illness or injury requiring immediate care. For EMERGENCY SERVICES, please CALL 911. Students who wish to be seen in the Express Care Clinic must check in at the reception desk with a valid picture ID. Checking in at the reception desk does not guarantee evaluation by a medical provider. A Registered Nurse will first screen each patient to determine the level of care required. At the discretion of the provider, patients may be referred or transported to an Emergency Room.

Wait times will vary and patients are seen based on the severity of their symptoms. Patients who are not seen in the Express Care Clinic may be given a same-day or future appointment depending on their medical concern and provider availability.

Mental Health Triage

Mental health triage sessions are brief 15-minute sessions for students in high distress. These appointments must be scheduled in person (Station 4, 2nd floor).

Please Note: Students' concerns are first assessed by a CAPS staff member. Mental health triage appointments are given to students based on issue of concern, severity and availability of an appropriate provider. Students with less urgent concerns are given a future appointment. Call (323) 343-3314 for information.
