About the Sexual Wellness Clinic

The Sexual Wellness Clinic (SWC) is a collaborative program between the Emergency Department (ED) and Section of Infectious Diseases at the University of Chicago Medicine. The program helps patients who come to the ED with a primary complaint related to sexually transmitted infections (STI) to efficiently access comprehensive sexual health screening, treatment, counseling, and prevention services. Any patient coming to the ED during clinic hours can be seen in the SWC for a same-day-visit regardless of insurance status. Pregnant women, patients with acute behavioral health concerns, victims of sexual assault, and patients under 18 years old cannot be seen at the SWC and remain in the ED for treatment.

Potential SWC patients undergo a brief medical screening exam (MSE) by an ED physician to determine appropriateness for transfer to the clinic, and then the SWC Clinic Transport will meet the patient in the ED and accompany them to DCAM 5D. Once there, they will be evaluated by a physician or APN, appropriate tests and treatment will be ordered, and referral to community resources and clinics (if applicable) will be provided.
