Program in Medical Education for the Urban Underserved
The mission of PRIME-US is to nurture, support and equip medical students to carry out their goal of effectively providing healthcare to vulnerable urban populations.
The goals of PRIME-US are to:
- Attract medical students from diverse backgrounds who have a strong interest in caring for the urban underserved in the United States.
- Provide a medical education experience for these students to equip and support them to become leaders in the care of urban underserved communities.
- Enable these students to serve as a catalyst for others at UCSF and the JMP to appreciate the rewards and challenges of caring for the urban underserved.
- Increase the number of UCSF medical school graduates who choose to pursue careers devoted to improving the health and health care of the urban underserved through leadership roles as community-engaged clinicians, educators, researchers, and social policy advocates.
PRIME-US is committed to nurturing and promoting diversity as defined by the University of California:
Diversity – a defining feature of California’s past, present, and future – refers to the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and geographic region, and more.
