University of California Health
Breaking down barriers to better health.
We are California.
Together, we are more than you may know.
We are six academic health centers, 20 health professional schools, four children’s hospital campuses and a Global Health Institute.
We are all of these and more. We invite you to see how we deliver exceptional care, train the health professionals of tomorrow and accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. Our goal is to make a meaningful impact on your life.
As an institution devoted to public service, University of California Health fosters compassion, inclusion, innovation and excellence—always keeping health access and equity in mind.
We do this in large and small ways. At each of our academic health centers and health sciences schools. Through national advocacy and hands-on action locally. Through the use of data to drive improvements in clinical care for each person and for communities as a whole.
