Updating Your Provider Profile

Instructions for updating your Provider Profile on the www.uclahealth.org website

Who is listed in the Provider Directory on uclahealth.org?

The UCLA Health Provider Directory lists ACTIVE UCLA Medical Group providers.

This search feature allows visitors to the www.uclahealth.org website to find a primary care provider or a specialist. Users have the option to search by name, specialty, keyword, languages spoken, or gender. These are dynamically generated web pages utilizing a content management system (CMS). Please see below for data sources.

If you are not currently listed as a provider in the UCLA Health Provider Directory, please contact the UCLA Medical Group's Provider Relations Office at (310) 302-1341 or by email at Provider@mednet.ucla.edu.

How do I find my web page?

To find your web page, go to www.uclahealth.org and use the Provider Directory Search feature to find your profile. In addition, all providers have a FRIENDLY URL which allows you to quickly locate your web page. The FRIENDLY URL is comprised of your "First Name" "-" "Last Name" placed after www.uclahealth.org/. For example, Dr. Ronald Busuttil's web page is www.uclahealth.org/Ronald-Busuttil. Note that the default URL uses your board-certified first and last name, and if part of your licensed name, can include middle name.    

If your FRIENDLY URL is not working, or you would like to update it please contact the Digital Marketing Team at MDProfile@mednet.ucla.edu.
