Students at the University of California—San Francisco School of Medicine take two years of block courses before completing a year of clerkships and a year of clinicals. About 150 students are admitted in each class, and the majority of the student body is from California.
In addition to earning a traditional M.D., students can add on a second degree through dual and joint programs. In the M.D./M.S. program, for example, students combine their medical training with a focus on research in the sciences or humanities while earning a master's degree in health and medical sciences at the University of California—Berkeley. Then, they move to UCSF to complete their M.D. Also unique is the Program in Medical Education for the Urban Underserved, a five-year track that readies students to work in impoverished communities across the country.
Medical students can complete clinical rotations at hospitals on campus, like the UCSF Medical Center and the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, or at sites throughout the city, including the San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. Students can live in university-owned housing units, including group houses and private apartments on or near campus. The city of San Francisco offers boundless opportunities to unwind after class, from beaches to dining and nightlife.
