Bridges Curriculum Teaching Opportunities
The Bridges Curriculum: Preparing the 21st Century Physician has teaching opportunities to fit the background and interests of all disciplines - from first-time teachers to expert educators.

Inquiry Immersion Mini-Course Leader
The central goal of Inquiry Immersion mini-courses is to help students in the healthcare professions shift from the concept of medicine as a series of facts to be learned from textbooks or didactics, to a vision of medical practice as engagement with an ever-evolving and imperfect body of knowledge.

Core Inquiry Curriculum Small Group Facilitator
The goal of the Inquiry curriculum is to train medical students to develop an inquisitive habit of mind, challenge current concepts, and create new knowledge—skills critical for the success of the 21st Century Physician.  We aim to help students shift from the conception of medicine as a series of facts to be learned from textbooks or didactics, to a vision of medical practice as consistent engagement with an ever-evolving and imperfect body of knowledge. Inquiry is a new component that comprises almost 25% of the UCSF Bridges Curriculum.
