Our Mission

  • Expand access to high-quality neurological care to underserved communities worldwide.
  • Increase the capacity of resource-limited communities to sustainably treat neurological conditions by partnering with local clinicians to enhance their capabilities.
  • Provide UCSF neurologists opportunities to practice medicine in a global health setting and further UCSF’s role as a world-leader in neurology and global health sciences.

Consultations include a UCSF neurologist conducting a joint consult with the partnering clinician and their patient. The partner clinician assumes full responsibility for the patient’s care during the web consultation. The partner clinician can either:

  • Schedule a time for a consult and provide patient information in advance.
  • Request a consult from a virtually on-call UCSF neurologist.
  • Schedule a day where multiple cases are presented in succession.
