Outpatient visits are defined as visits in which patients see either a physician or nurse practitioner in a clinic. Visits to other units, such as radiology, laboratory and physical therapy, are not counted as outpatient visits.

The University's five medical centers handle about 3.8 million outpatient clinic visits annually and constitute the fourth-largest health care system in California.

The medical centers provide a full range of health care services and are sites for testing the application of new knowledge and the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.

Together, the five medical centers accounted for 5 percent of the outpatient visits by California's Medi-Cal and uninsured patients.
