Health & Wellness

The Health and Wellness Centre offers U of T students the same services as a family doctor’s office and more.

The Centre provides confidential, student-centred health care, including comprehensive medical care, travel education, immunization, counseling, and referrals. The multidisciplinary health team includes family physicians, registered nurses, a dietitian, support staff and a lab technician.

Services are available to all full and part-time students who have paid the appropriate incidental fees. You must possess a valid TCard and have health insurance coverage. Services are covered by OHIP, other provincial health insurance plans, or UHIP. The Health Service is a designated Health Canada Travel Medicine Clinic offering travel immunization and education programs.

Wellness Counselor & Coordinator

Engineering students are able to access individual, time-limited life coaching, personal counseling and solution/goal-focused psychotherapy within a holistic approach to personal wellness through the Faculty’s Wellness Counselor and Coordinator. Laurie Coleman is a registered clinical social worker and a member of Health and Wellness’ embedded mental health team.

The focus of counseling and psychotherapy is to assist you with any emotional or psychological problems or difficulties. The goal is to help you clarify issues, better understand your emotions, relationships and responses and to effectively deal with challenges so that you are able to achieve your personal and academic best.

Services are offered in a confidential and empowering environment that is directed towards optimizing your personal, academic and overall well-being.
