Medical

Laboratory

More than 90,000 lab tests are performed at Tang each year!

Our lab is licensed by the State of California and accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory HealthCare (AAAHC). We are a CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendment) certified facility and testing performance is constantly monitored by API (American Proficiency Institute). 

Pharmacy

Our fully licensed pharmacy is committed to providing quality service to our patients. We accept valid prescriptions from licensed clinicians within the United States, if the prescription is for an item that we stock.

Medical Records

When you arrive at UC Berkeley, you may wish to have your medical records transferred to the Tang Center from your previous health care provider.

You can print a release form for transfers of records to UHS or pick up a copy of the form from Medical Records. Complete the form and mail it to your previous health care provider.

New Student Checklist

Before you come to Berkeley, there are a number of ways you can plan ahead to avoid or minimize the complications caused by illness.  

Request/Need What to Do

Immunizations

A wide-variety of immunizations are available at the Tang Center. 

Expired Medication

No drugs down the drain! 

The Tang Center is one of ten prescription drop-off stations through East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) accepting unwanted/expired residential pharmaceuticals, through a partnership with EH&S. See Tang Center hours

Pregnancy Options

Think you might be pregnant? The first step is to take a pregnancy test. This can be done at Tang or in the privacy of your home. 

Contraceptives and Family Planning

There are more options than ever to help prevent unplanned pregnancy.

Many factors go into making this important decision. What once was a good method for you a few years ago may not fit your busy lifestyle and schedule now, and new options may have become available. Your UHS clinician can assist you in finding the right method for your individual needs and preferences, including options for those who are ready to think about family planning. 

Women's Health

Welcome to the Tang Center for your Women's Health* health care needs. We hope this information will be helpful in managing your health and wellness while you are at UC Berkeley.

Members of the UHS Trans Team are currently working to make this language more inclusive. We appreciate your patience, support and input!
