In addition to contacting us directly, prospective patients can also contact us through one of the UC San Diego Health’s International Ambassadors. These ambassadors are doctors and other experts who are knowledgeable about the needs and concerns of patients in their home countries. The Ambassador Program provides prospective patients the comfort and familiarity of a local contact who can communicate in their native language and discuss the possibility of coming to UC San Diego Health for treatment.

Please select the country or region to see the ambassador in your area:
