One UCSF Featured Voice: Colette DeJong, 3rd Year Medical Student

At UCSF, we are redefining possible. We believe we can discover more, think differently, go above and beyond and set the standard for things to come. We come to work every morning driven and passionate, hoping for a brighter future for our patients, our students, and the communities we serve.

We share an indisputable common bond: a desire to change the future of health. Together, we believe our work redefines what is possible in research, education, and patient care.
