There are two Ombuds serving the Stanford community -- the University Ombuds and the School of Medicine Ombuds. If you are with the School of Medicine or one of its centers or institutes, please contact the SOM Ombuds. Members of all other schools and units, please feel free to reach out to the University Ombuds.

Please note that neither Ombuds serves community members unaffiliated with Stanford, nor staff or patients in Stanford hospitals or outpatient clinics. If you are a patient with a concern with the hospital or a Stanford clinic, please contact Patient Relations at 650-498-3333. If you are a staff member at the hospital or an outpatient clinic, please contact your local human resources manager.
