International Clinic

Part of what makes the Bay Area unique is our incredibly diverse population. Our part of Northern California hosts families from many locations around the globe—all of whom contribute to the vibrant setting so many of us are proud to call home. UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland seeks to serve this population in our International Clinic, a facility open to children from birth through age 19 in need of preventative and primary care in a setting that is friendly, welcoming, and culturally-sensitive. Our certified travel health physicians offer pre-travel health advice about vaccines, medicines, and how to avoid insect-transmitted, food, and waterborne illness when traveling with children.
