UCSF Privacy & Confidentiality

UCSF is committed to protecting the personal, sensitive, and medical information of its patients, research subjects, students, and workforce. As such, the UCSF Privacy Office established and maintains a Privacy Compliance Program to promote information privacy awareness amongst the UCSF community and to ensure that UCSF’s workforce has the training and resources needed to protect private information, report privacy issues and concerns, and refer questions to the Privacy Office when additional guidance is needed.

Our website provides privacy educational tools and resources, clarifies frequently asked questions, and provides contact information to ask questions or report privacy concerns.
