Reproductive Health Services
In the 2022 Midterm Election, Michigan residents voted to amend the state constitution to establish a new individual right to reproductive freedom. This includes the right to abortion, which remains legal in the state.
As we have in our decades of serving our campus community, University Health Service (UHS) remains committed to providing a full spectrum of high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare services to our patients.
For more information, please see the public affairs website.
Rates of respiratory illnesses are on the rise this fall. COVID-19, seasonal influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), adenovirus, and many other respiratory viruses that could disrupt your daily activities share similar symptoms, such as a cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, fever, or fatigue. If you are sick and need medical guidance, self-schedule an appointment in the UHS virtual quick clinic. And remember, nurse advice is available anytime, day or night, by calling (734) 764-8320. We also offer these tips for self-care treatment of symptoms at home.

MPV is a potentially serious viral illness. It can be transmitted through direct contact with an infected person’s body fluids or MPV rash/lesions. If you have a rash or sores on your skin, UHS can test for MPV with a skin swab test.
The monkeypox virus (MPV) is part of the same family of viruses as the variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. MPV symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms but milder, and MPV is rarely fatal. Read more on our MPV page.
U-M requires all students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 and to submit their vaccination information. More information on policies and guidance can be found on the U-M Health Response website.
