Inquiry Curriculum: Deep Explore

Deep Explore is a component of the Inquiry Curriculum. It consists of 12-20 weeks of dedicated project time during the Career Launch phase of the curriculum where students will pair with a UCSF faculty mentor, to conduct scholarship relevant to the topic of their choice.

While some students will choose basic or clinical science research, scholarly projects can also range from a community health initiative, health systems improvement project, or population health work in an under-resources country. Through this component, students will independently engage in the discovery process to develop and disseminate their project results.

The previous Pathways to Discovery Program set foundational curricular components in place to facilitate students' Inquiry knowledge. Refer to the archived Pathways to Discovery website for more information.
