Fall restart at the Unified Clinics

Welcome Back! Although we had to close our doors in March, we have slowly been able to reopen our clinics and services. We are happy to welcome patients and students safely back to the clinics and WMU's campus this fall.

The Unified Clinics, like the rest of Western Michigan University, is working hard to protect the health and safety of all our patients, students, staff and faculty. University and college plans for a safe return continue to evolve. The latest information is available here.

Unified Clinics patients, families, students, faculty and staff,

Welcome back to spring 2021 at the Unified Clinics.

We know you’re concerned about safety, and I want you to know that we’re concerned about your safety, too. Rest assured that staff at the Unified Clinics and in the college have worked tirelessly and met many times with groups in the college and across the University to come up with a plan to come back in the safest way possible. On this page, we'll list some of the changes we've made and updated building procedures to help everyone come back safe.
