Establishing care with the Trans Care Team entails making a telemedicine appointment with one of their clinicians. You will be able to ask questions and create a plan of care that is right for you. You can get started with the Trans Care Team in one of two ways:

Need assistance navigating our Transcare services?

  • Call Clinic 3 at (510) 643-7110 and ask to speak with the clinic nurse. The clinic nurse can arrange an appointment and prepare you for your visit. 
  • You can self-schedule using the eTang portal. In order to be able to self-schedule for a trans care telemedicine appointment, you must have one of the trans care clinicians listed as your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Take a look at the clinicians on the Trans Care Team below and identify someone you would like to make your appointment with (this can always be changed). Once this clinician is chosen, go onto the eTang portal and make them your Primary Care Provider (PCP). In the eTang portal go to “Profile," then under “Current Primary Care Provider” click on “Edit.” This will allow you to search for the name of the chosen trans care clinician.  Once you have designated your PCP, you will be able to self-schedule on the eTang portal.

UHS also has counselors experienced in working with trans and gender non-conforming students and/or queer-identified counselors that you may request to work with if helpful.
