Help Shape the Next Generation of Physicians

UCSF is currently recruiting pediatricians to act as preceptors for UCSF second year medical students, and hope you will consider serving in this critically important teaching role. As part of the "Foundations of Patient Care" course, students have four sessions this fall during which they are introduced to clinical Pediatrics. These are the only opportunities many students have to gain experience with children in the clinical setting prior to starting clerkships.   

Physician preceptors will be asked to precept four half-day sessions, on either Tuesday/Thursday afternoons or Wednesday mornings. The dates are:

  • Tuesday afternoons (Dates: 10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/27)
  • Wednesday mornings (Dates: 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, 11/28) - San Francisco based offices only
  • Thursday afternoons (Dates: 10/11, 10/25, 11/8, 11/29)

Help make a lasting impression on a medical student with minimal time commitment! To learn more about the preceptorship program or to become a preceptor, please contact Patricia Ramirez in the Clinical Learning Unit at or call (415) 476-5169.
