Being sick is NOT fun!

I don’t know about you, but when I’m sick, I want to feel better as fast as possible and the last thing I want to do is wait all day to see a doctor; or even worse is when the doctor doesn’t have any appointments available and schedules me for 2-3 days later (um…I’m sick NOW!).  This is why I was very excited to learn about ECU Rapid Access. 

ECU Rapid Access offers all ECU employees and their immediate families same-day doctor’s appointments for urgent, general-care needs.  SAME DAY!!!   And they do a great job of getting you in and out in less than an hour.  If you combine Rapid Access services with with our ECU Physicians Pharmacy Services you will be on the path to feeling better a lot faster than if you went to a doctor and pharmacy outside of ECU! 

Rapid Access has convenient locations on both Main and Health Sciences campuses:

  • On Main Campus patients are seen at Family Medicine East in the Student Health Services (1000 E. 5th St.) and appointments are available from 8:30 am – 12:30 pm. At the Student Health Services location walk-ins are welcome during operating hours. If you are on Main Campus and need to see a physician after 12:30 p.m. they will still see you.  
  • The Health Sciences Campus patients are seen at the Family Medicine Center (101 Heart Drive), and appointments are available from 8 am – 4 pm, with ECU Pharmacy Services available in the same building.

So the next time you have a nagging cough, fever, flu, allergic reaction or any other symptoms that fall into the “urgent care” category, give the ECU Rapid Access Clinic a try.

For appointments, please call 744-0555.  For additional information, visit the Rapid Access Website at
