Guidelines & Policies

Please refer to the School of Medicine's Guidelines and Policies for medical students at UCSF. The Guidelines represent the Deans' recommended approaches to the learning environment and curriculum based on their years of experience. Each Guideline also includes instructions for how to request a different approach based on individual circumstances. The Policies section features the regulatory mandates that students need to follow for institutional and/or compliance reasons. Unless otherwise indicated, all UCSF Medical Student Policies also apply to UCSF medical students who are conducting their learning at regional campuses.

Our Institutional Policies pertain to protocols around educational initiatives at UCSF, while others pertain specifically to policies for our faculty educators.

Please use this section to find our Institutional, Admissions, Medical Student, Faculty, and Technology policies.
