About University of California San Francisco (UCSF)
University California San Fransisco (UCSF) is the leading university exclusively focused on health. The University comprises top-ranked professional schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy; as well as a physical therapy program and a graduate division with world-renowned programs in basic and social/populational sciences.
At UCSF, we are driven by the idea that when the best research, the best teaching and the best patient care converge, we can deliver breakthroughs that help heal the world.
UCSF is a collection of dedicated scientists, clinicians, students and staff who share a common drive to make the world a better place by advancing health and the human condition. Care and compassion are as critical as science and discovery in fulfilling our mission to drive change, and make a difference for individual patients and whole populations.
In a field where lives often hang in a delicate balance, UCSF recognizes that time is of the essence — for patients in the hospital and for populations facing a health peril. We harness the efficiency of multidisciplinary teams to accelerate learning and scientific progress and speed the development of new therapies and cures. We are constantly pushing forward the policies and partnerships that ensure that people in need are getting access to the most cutting-edge care and treatment.
UCSF is unique in that it only offers graduate degrees (meaning it does not have an undergraduate student population).
