UCSF Medical Group represents the physicians who care for patients at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals and who are full-time faculty at the University of California, San Francisco. The medical group provides a structure to enhance and facilitate clinical care, teaching, research and community service for the faculty of the UCSF School of Medicine.

UCSF Medical Group has an elected board of directors that defines standards of care and sets strategy for the clinical practices, defines new program opportunities and has authority over medical group management. The board also acts on recommendations of its committees to address issues such as contracting, billing, credentialing, quality of care, incentives and oversight of outpatient programs.
