Outreach and Academic Advancement
The Office of Outreach & Academic Advancement at the UCSF School of Medicine directs the outreach efforts of the School of Medicine. Outreach is targeted toward undergraduate and post graduate individuals who have an interest in pursuing careers in the health sciences. The office also works with UCSF medical student organizations and the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program in their outreach programming efforts.
The UCSF School of Medicine Post Baccalaureate Program is now in its 15th year. Ninety-two percent of the students in our program who apply to medical school have matriculated into a U.S. allopathic or osteopathic medical school. A number of others have earned degrees in public health or other allied health professions. In 2011, our program received graduate certificate status, and is now part of the UCSF Interprofessional Health Post Baccalaureate Program that includes programs from the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine and Pharmacy. Our students participate in interprofessional seminars and research projects that will culminate in a symposium and poster presentation in the spring of 2014. This year our program is host to 12 students who hail from different regions of California.Welcome Class of 2013-14!
