UCSF Community Rehabilitation Clinic

UCSF Community Rehabilitation Clinic aims to provide rehabilitation and physical therapy services to uninsured and underinsured patients, at no cost, with the goal of improving the health and quality of life of underserved populations in the Bay Area. Recognizing the benefits that physical rehabilitation can offer, our intent is to provide outreach and services to these individuals that may not be able to get rehabilitation services elsewhere.


To provide free physical therapy services to improve the health and quality of life of the underserved population in the greater Bay Area.


We envision that anyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status, will have access to high-quality physical therapy services in order to improve and transform their quality of life.

About Us

Our clinic saw its very first patient September 2021. Our intent continues to remain the same-- to address common barriers to care, such as, access, comprehension, and cost. We are staffed and run by volunteers, both physical therapy faculty members and UCSF physical therapy students. We are open two Saturdays every month, which historically, therapy services are only accessible during typical working hours during the weekday. We also provide language services through in person interpretors and use of video interpreters, to ensure all patients feel comfortable in sharing their unique stories with us. There is no direct cost to any patients seen in our clinic, and we hope to be able to provide our patients assistive devices and equipment to address their specific needs as we continue to grow in the future. As individuals seen in our clinic are able to begin managing their physical impairments, they are thus less limited in their ability to participate in work, taking care of their familes, and ultimately improving their quality of life.
