The East End Family Health Team offers weekly medical clinics by appointment only for Northern College Students. You need to be a registered Northern College student who does not have a doctor in the Cochrane district area or an International student studying at Northern College. You will need your Northern College student identification card or have an Ontario or out of province health card. International students will need to show their insurance card that is provided by the college.

TB/ TST Testing
A TST (Tuberculin skin test) is a requirement for most of the Northern College Health Sciences programs prior to student placement opportunities.
The “Mantoux” skin test is a test to check if a person has been exposed to the TB bacteria. Once you have had the first step, you will be asked to return within 2 or 3 days to have a trained health care worker look for a reaction on the arm where the liquid was injected. If you miss your reading appointment you will be charged a $25.00 fee to be paid before being able to book again.
A two-step TST should be performed if subsequent TSTs will be conducted in the future (e.g., among health care workers). The two-step protocol needs to be performed once only and if properly performed and documented, it never needs to be repeated. Any subsequent TST can be one step, regardless of how long it has been since the last test. This test is available by appointment only. Please call to book your appointment.
We hold clinics once a week for Northern College students by appointment only. Please call the clinic for more information or take a look at our calendar to see the upcoming dates. Limited availability.
We do have a 24 Hour Cancellation Policy. After 2 no shows, you will no longer be able to schedule an appointment at the EEFHT per the discretion of the provider.
Immunization as a course requirement
Available Monday to Friday by appointment only.
REMEMBER: You must present your immunization record and Ontario Health card/ Insurance card in order to access this clinic.
