ServicesBCIT Student Health Services is a walk-in medical clinic located on the Burnaby campus in SE 16-127. BCIT Student Health provides medical services to help students succeed in their educational pursuits and to support faculty and staff in delivering the highest quality education. Services are provided by a physician or a registered nurse on a walk-in, first come, first serve basis. Occasionally more urgent cases are moved up the queue.
