University Health Service

University Health Service includes Student Health, Employee Health and Employee Health Urgent Care Clinic.

UHS is your source for employee and student health care. Our physicians are board-certified in family practice, internal medicine, gynecology/genitourinary care (GYN/GU), psychiatry, and occupational medicine. In addition to our physicians, our nurse practitioners have certification in family medicine, women's health, psychiatry and emergency medicine.


UK HealthCare MyChart is a secure and easy-to-use online patient portal that allows you to manage your care and access your health information any time. MyChart provides you with online access to your health record. It can help you participate in your health care and communicate with your providers. More information:


As of June 5, 2021, UK TeleCare video visits will move to our new patient portal, UK HealthCare MyChart. The Zoom platform will no longer be utilized for these visits. If you have a UK TeleCare appointment scheduled on June 5 or later, we ask that you set up a UK HealthCare MyChart account for your visit. To learn more about signing up for MyChart, go to

Please note that MyChart is available in both English and Spanish. If you cannot access MyChart or have trouble using it, our team can provide you with other options for your visit.
