Dear Student: Welcome to Thompson Rivers University Health Services! 

We encourage you to use Health Services as your primary point of medical/health care while at university, especially, if you do not have a family physician in Kamloops. We do work closely as a team, so any practitioner can help you. Please ensure TRU Medical Clinic is named as your primary care clinic if you go to the hospital, lab or x-ray departments, and results will be forwarded here to your medical record.
