Clinical Group - Neuropsychiatric and Biobehavioral Health Services

An important domain of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, is the provision of clinical service and oversight of clinical practice through the Neuropsychiatric and Behavioral Health Services (NPBHS) of the Department's practice group. Organized under the practice guidelines of the David Geffen School of Medicine, NPBHS is overseen by a practitioner's board advisory to the Executive Chair and managed on a day-to-day basis by Dr Michael Gitlin.

Please note that all booking is through the ACCESS Center (800-825 9989 or 310-825 9989, Mon-Fri 0800-1700) and that certain clinics are only available to patients currently registered with the UCLA Health System (within the past 12 months). Days and times indicate when patient appointments can be made, although these are subject to change at short notice.
