About the clinic
The Macdonald campus clinic is part of McGill’s Student Health clinic. Mac students can be seen at either the MAC or downtown campus clinics. At the MAC campus clinic, the services of a nurse are available 3 days a week, from 9:00-4:30. During the summer months (mid-May to mid-August), the MAC clinic is closed; however, students can still be seen at the downtown clinic. Special “urgent” appointments spots are reserved daily for MAC students (1 with the nurse and one with the drop-in physician).
Nurse: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, 9:00am - 4:30pm (Schedule may vary. Please call 514-398-7992 or visit Student Services for detailed information).
