Community Health Clinic

Concordia University Chicago is committed to making sure students find quality health and wellness care. Concordia University Chicago attempts to limit the impact of injury or illness by the provision of services for early intervention.

The Health Clinic will not be open this academic year but instead, all traditional undergraduate students have been enrolled in a telehealth program, called Teladoc. This FREE service is available to all Undergraduate students 24/7 and can be accessed via computer, mobile device or app.

There is no cost for consultations and no limit to the number of visits.
