Helping You Manage Your Healthcare!

The staff at the UHS work closely together to promote wellness and offer healthcare in a medical home model: comprehensive, coordinated, and delivered in a manner that best suits your needs.

The core of this model is your relationship with a primary care clinician and their team, who by getting to know you and your health history are able to work in partnership with you, your family, and other providers to help you stay healthy during your time at Berkeley, and beyond.

All Berkeley students, regardless of the type of health insurance, have full access to services at UHS Tang Center. Please review the Patient Rights & Responsibilities document that is posted on the clinic wall and feel free to ask any of the staff if you have any questions.

We look forward to working with you!

Meet Your Primary Care Team

Primary care medical staff are based in Clinic Teams 1-3, consisting of doctors, nurse practitioners, and medical assistants. UC Berkeley students are automatically assigned a primary care provider (PCP) on registration, based in one of these clinics. We strongly encourage you to see your PCP or one of the other members of their team whenever you visit Primary Care in order to best coordinate your needs–the better we get to know you, the higher quality and more efficient your care! However, should you wish to change your PCP based on specialty interest or personal preference you are always able to do so online through eTang, and we frequently consult with each other to ensure you receive the best possible care.
