Location: Old Main – Lower Level (Room OM 1461) By appointment only
The TRU Medical Clinic serves registered students who require medical support during their time studying in Kamloops. Appointments are required as we are not a drop-in clinic. We ask students that already have a doctor in Kamloops to call that doctor’s office to make an appointment.
TRU staff and faculty are encouraged to use local walk-in clinics, as the clinic is intended for students who are not from Kamloops and so do not have a local family doctor. New TRU faculty and staff should be making every attempt to find local, on-going medical care as soon as they begin their employment. We may be able to fill some gaps on a short-term basis, but our priority is to serve students.
