This year the UCSF Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, the Graduate Division and Physical Therapy are reaching out to institutions throughout California and the United States for students who have an expressed interest and talent in the sciences. This exciting and informative program is free, and designed to give students an in-depth introduction to a specific health science career path, a chance to meet current students and become inspired about future career possibilities.

  • Interactive panels of students from the schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, life sciences, and physical therapy discussing their path to, and succeeding in, professional and graduate school.
  • Specific introductions to one of the professional schools, the graduate division, or physical therapy, including conversations with faculty, staff and students.
  • Workshops to demystify the preparation for and application to graduate and professional school.
  • A classroom experience to expose you to a typical graduate/professional school academic experience.
  • Tours of the campus and new state-of-the-art facilities
