Eating Disorders Treatment at UHS

At University Health Services there is a team of health care providers who help students with eating disorders (ED). The Eating Disorders Treatment Team (EDTT) members include a physician, nutritionist, psychiatrist, therapist, all of whom have special training in the treatment of ED and are sensitive to the difficulties that are part of recovery. The team addresses the physical, psychological and nutritional aspects of an ED. This service is available to all UC Berkeley students.

ED Clinic is offered at Tang Center on Tuesdays. The clinic is an efficient way of providing medical treatment, with providers from doctor, dietitian, and nurse all present at one visit.

  • Students: If you have not been seen at UHS for this issue, call UHS Clinic 3 at (510) 643-7110 to discuss your particular situation and how the Eating Disorders Treatment Team can best meet your needs.
