Primary Care

Students can use the medical services at the Tang Center just as they would their regular doctor's office and urgent care center. Our facility is fully accredited, staffed by licensed and/or board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, a nutritionist, and nurses.

Helping you manage your healthcare!

Pregnancy Options

Think you might be pregnant? The first step is to take a pregnancy test. This can be done at Tang or in the privacy of your home. 

Contraceptives and Family Planning

There are more options than ever to help prevent unplanned pregnancy.

Many factors go into making this important decision. What once was a good method for you a few years ago may not fit your busy lifestyle and schedule now, and new options may have become available. Your UHS clinician can assist you in finding the right method for your individual needs and preferences, including options for those who are ready to think about family planning.
