Mission Statement

The Medical Group was created to provide a structure to enhance and facilitate clinical care, and to support the missions of the faculty and the School of Medicine. The Medical Group consists of the full-time faculty members of the clinical departments of the School of Medicine who practice at UCSF.

The goals of the Medical Group are:

  • To facilitate the delivery of primary and specialty clinical services in a quality, cost-effective, coordinated, and patient-friendly manner.
  • To measure and report clinical and business operations performance in a manner that facilitates clinical collaboration across departments and improves patient satisfaction and operational efficiency.
  • To develop alliances with other health care providers to support the mission of the Medical Group and the medical school.
  • To enhance the clinical practices through coordinated planning, marketing, and delivery of clinical services.
  • To facilitate UCSF's ability to maintain its academic and clinical programs in support of the faculty and the medical school.
  • To market the Medical Group's and the Medical Center's clinical services to patients, referring physicians, third-party payers and others, as appropriate.
  • To provide a unified structure for clinical departments to evaluate, negotiate, and monitor contracts with third party payers for clinical services and to facilitate contracting jointly with UCSF Medical Center.
  • To ensure compliance with regulatory agency requirements and quality standards

By supporting the clinical activities of our faculty, the Medical Group supports the overall mission of the School of Medicine, which includes education, clinical and basic science, and community service.
