Types of medical help: Emergency, Urgent Care, Clinic Visit
Health care providers distinguish between emergency services and urgent care. Emergency services are those required for a serious injury or life-threatening illness. Urgent care is given for problems that are less serious but cannot wait for a regular doctor appointment.
Emergency Care
You should go to a hospital emergency department only if the problem is life-threatening or extremely serious. Services provided at an emergency room cost much more than the same services during a clinic visit. Emergency care is available at Stevens Community Medical Center (SCMC).
If you need help getting to the hospital, you can call 911 and an ambulance will take you. Ambulance services are expensive, but sometimes necessary.
Urgent Care
Call your doctor’s office first—you may be able to get an immediate appointment. If not, go to an urgent care department. Urgent care is located at Stevens Community Medical Center (SCMC)
Clinic Visit
Clinic visits are brief appointments with a doctor or nurse to discuss your health concerns. Clinic appointments are usually made ahead of time. You can call the clinic to make an appointment. Be prepared to answer questions, they will ask a lot of questions to make sure they understand the problem. At the University of Minnesota Morris, there are two main places to have a clinic visit. On-campus, you can go to Health Services, or Stevens Community Medical Center is located 4 blocks off campus.

“Over the Counter” remedies
For minor aches and pains, or common colds and flu, medications are available at drug stores, pharmacies, and discount department stores. Medications that do not require a doctor’s prescription, such as aspirin, cold and flu medication, and other pain relievers, are often referred to as “over-the-counter” medications.
