In the News

  • We’re delighted to welcome a new colleague to our UME team. DoQueyn Tran-Taylor joins us as our new Associate Director of UME for the Student Experience.

  • It’s been a year since the American Medical Association (AMA) awarded $1 million to University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine as part of its ambitious $11 million initiative Accelerating Change in Medical Education. And this week, leaders from the UCSF School of Medicine and leaders from the other 10 medical schools selected for the grant convened at Vanderbilt University’s School of Medicine to embark on the next phase to help reshape the way medical students are educated in this country.

  • We are excited to announce the launch of our second physical exam mobile learning app, the UCSF Musculoskeletal Exam Tutor App for the iPhone and iPad!
    It presents an innovative approach to learning the musculoskeletal physical exam, with clinical cases and a library of real patient videos, to help you perfect your understanding and execution of the MSK exam.
  • The UCSF Bridges Curriculum will leverage the power of medical education to advance health care today while preparing graduates for their roles as transformational 21st Century Physicians. We will educate our medical students to embrace the roles and responsibilities of the 21st century physician: a collaborative physician who is deeply committed to providing the highest quality care for today’s patients and to advancing medicine and health care for future generations of patients.
