Doctors on video call

UCLA Health is dedicated to making our services more accessible to patients outside Los Angeles or anywhere else around the world. From online second opinion evaluations to advanced telepathology programs, we strive to ensure our patients receive the best care from any location.

Telemedicine Services for Patients

Telemedicine helps us connect patients with our world-class physicians so patients can communicate in the language they prefer. Once they are set up, many of our telehealth consultations enable you to interact with your doctor in real-time, as if you were there in person speaking to one another. We offer:

Second opinion consults

UCLA Health International Patient Services can coordinate second opinion reviews for you. Before committing to long-distance travel for medical care, we can arrange for you to virtually meet with our UCLA experts to discuss your symptoms, history of illness and treatment options.

Since its launch in 2010, UCLA Health has developed one of the largest and most experienced international telepathology programs in the world. We have reviewed more than 2,200 international clinical cases since 2015.

Our telepathology services allow physicians to practice pathology at a distance. Using advanced telemedicine technology, we can consult on pathology images from around the world. Our physicians use this technology to consult on diagnosis and treatment, as well as education and research. By breaking down geographical barriers, telepathology makes quality health care more accessible and convenient for patients.
