Medical Education News

  • Bridges recognizes that knowledge alone will not prepare physicians of the future to operate in complex care delivery systems. With the Clinical Microsystems Clerkship (CMC) projects, students will gain the skills to both thrive and lead in these settings.

  • Check out this comprehensive review of the UCSF MSK Tutor mobile learning app produced by Dr. Carlin Senter and the Technology Enhanced Learning team.

  • As the MS2/MS3 UME Staff Advisor, Sara provides support and guidance to students, with an emphasis on the transition from second to third year and the clinical core clerkships. Sara has worked in medical education for nearly a decade, at UCSF, UW, and Stanford. Her previous role at UCSF was in student affairs and her work at UW and Stanford focused on clerkship education, assessment, and accreditation. Before joining medical education, Sara taught second and fourth grades in Los Angeles and San Francisco public schools. Sara completed her undergraduate education at UC Santa Cruz and has a master’s degree in education from UCLA. 
  • In the summer of 2014, eight medical students and two pharmacy students have piloted many of the new ideas that Bridges is introducing.

  • A more fully integrated curriculum, grounded in Inquiry as a habit of mind frees students to apply knowledge and empowers our faculty members to teach at the edge of the known.
