For online appointment booking and using secure Health Mail you must first create a Medeo account.
When you create a Medeo account you can make your booking requests and access your messages via the Medeo website, or through the Medeo App if you have downloaded it to your mobile device.

This email contains details about the requested appointment such as the clinic and provider name, requested time and date, and clinic location.
You will receive an email with the subject "Appointment request with <Provider Name> at Dalhousie Student Health & Wellness accepted" once your appointment has been reviewed and accepted by the clinic.
Your appointment can be viewed in Medeo by clicking on 'appointment requests' in the email or by signing in to your Medeo account here.

The Dalhousie Student Health & Wellness Centre has recently started using electronic forms in order to gather required information from patients such as consent forms and COVID-19 screening information.
Starting in September 2020, student and community patients will be sent a link to a Student Health & Wellness Patient Consent Form upon booking your next appointment at the Centre. The link to the electronic form will be sent to the email address that we have on file at the Centre. You can simply complete the required information in the form and click submit. The form will be submitted and attached to your file in advance of your appointment.
Electronic forms will also be used to complete COVID-19 screening checks in advance of in-person appointments, for consent forms for IUD insertions, use of the CCAPs assessment tool for counselling, etc.
If you have trouble accessing the form that has been sent to you, please contact our Centre by phone at (902) 494-2171.
