Primary Care through UCSF Health

Student Mental Health and Wellbeing does not provide primary care services.

UCSF Health is the designated provider of primary care services for UCSF students using the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). To establish care, you need to register. To begin the process please complete the intake web form. For students who have waived UC SHIP and have a commercial insurance plan, you may elect to use UCSF Health as your primary care provider or continue utilizing options provided by your current insurance to obtain primary care services.

UCSF Health employs a comprehensive primary care model that emphasizes patient-centered care, tailored to meet the diverse needs of individuals and communities. At UCSF, we want your primary care clinic to feel like your healthcare home. We welcome patients from all walks of life and backgrounds, and we ensure that every patient receives innovative, conscientious, and high-quality care. UCSF Health operates several primary care clinics, primarily located in and around San Francisco.
