Employee Health Services

University Health Services is a multidisciplinary healthcare team who believes that true wellness is achieved when we treat patients holistically – mind, body, and spirit.

Our care centers on a strong, trusting relationship between you and your health care team. We take the time to get to know you as a person, not just your clinical history. Our team is your partner in health and is dedicated to keeping you well. 

Convenient Primary Care

UHS welcomes UTHSC faculty, staff, students, and their family members over the age of 18. We offer primary care as well as specialized care including behavioral health and occupational health. 

Same-day appointments are often available. Walk-in appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Walk-in appointments are currently restricted due to COVID-19 precautions.

Most health insurance plans are accepted, including UTHSC sponsored plans for students and employees. If covered by another health insurance plan, please contact our office to verify whether or not your plan is accepted at UHS.

COVID-19 Reporting Procedure


Employees are responsible for reporting positive cases. Human Resources will no longer be individually reaching out to employee reports. All units and supervisors must direct employees to complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form and follow the appropriate CDC instructions for isolation.

All employees are encouraged to complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form if you test positive for COVID-19.

In the interest of maintaining the health and safety of the campus, UTHSC has implemented the following safety procedure if you voluntarily notify your supervisor of your COVID-19 status:

  • 5-day self-isolation for COVID-19 positive employees
  • If you are up-to-date with your vaccinations and boosters, or have recovered from COVID-19 within the last three (3) months, no quarantine is required after a non-household close contact
  • However, you are expected to wear a mask, remain socially distant, and monitor for symptoms for a 10-day period
  • If exposed to COVID-19, please wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5.

Please refer to the CDC calculator to confirm your isolation/quarantine dates

  • ALL employees experiencing the above MUST request clearance by completing this form prior to returning to campus and submit it to University Health Services (UHS) for approval
    • For any questions, please contact UHS at eohs@uthsc.edu or 901.448.5630
    • UHS will provide authorization to return to campus and can advise employees on their unique health situations
    • If you test positive for COVID-19 and symptoms are not improving and/or a fever persists within the last twenty-four (24) hours, your isolation period may be extended to 10 days

Leave and Telecommuting

If approved by your supervisor and should your job duties allow, you may telecommute during your isolation or quarantine period. When unable to telecommute, accrued sick or annual leave must be used for work time missed. If leave balance is insufficient, leave without pay will be applied.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

UHS is no longer providing COVID-19 vaccinations. To locate COVID-19 vaccine near you, please visit https://www.vaccines.gov/.

All employees are encouraged to get tested (if they have had a close contact to someone testing positive for COVID-19, suspect exposure, or have symptoms) and vaccinated against COVID-19. For more information and further guidance:
