Faculty-Staff Clinic

The Faculty-Staff Clinic at UMC provides UA employees with quick and convenient non-emergency medical care. The clinic is devoted exclusively to the care of University employees and their families covered under the University’s BlueCross Blue Shield of Alabama health insurance plan.

The clinic is staffed by masters’ prepared nurse practitioners who are available for walk-in care to assess and treat minor medical urgencies and acute illnesses, administer vaccinations and perform physicals, or follow up with chronic conditions or women’s routine health services. Physician oversight and consultation is readily available when needed. As with all UMC, x-ray and laboratory testing are available onsite.

Angela Hammond and Beth Fuller, CRNP, are the full-time nurse practitioners at the Faculty-Staff Clinic.

You can also make the clinic your primary care medical home by choosing a faculty family physician to serve as your personal physician.

The Faculty-Staff Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm (including the lunch hour). Appointments are needed for a physician-only visit.

Seasonal Health Tip

Colds and many other upper respiratory infections, as well as some ear infections, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can’t treat—like colds or other viral infections—they can stop working effectively against bacteria when you or your child really needs them. Antibiotic resistance has been a concern for years and is considered one of the world’s most critical public health threats.
