How it Works

No appointment necessary. Come to the Family Medicine Residency Clinic before 11 a.m. on Thursday, on the first floor of the hospital, and present your ID card. Space may be limited due to capacity constraints, patients will be seen on a first come, first serve basis. Patients will complete a urine pregnancy test, will then receive education/counseling on all available short-acting, long-acting, reversible, and permanent forms of contraception.
