How We're Organized (Org Charts)

In 2014, BCH Oakland and UCSF joined forces to build the West Coast’s leading Pediatric Health System delivering safe, leading-edge, high-value care in a patient-centric delivery system. All BCH San Francisco and the majority of BCH Oakland physicians are UCSF School of Medicine faculty. To better understand how our organizations weave together, please find the BCH Oakland and School of Medicine structures linked below.
