Committed to diversity and inclusion, the NCSP at UCSF aims to train the next generation of health and healthcare change agents, prepared to work in diverse settings to achieve our goals of a healthier and more equitable world. Based at UCSF’s Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, the NCSP at UCSF is a partnership between UCSF’s Schools of Medicine and Nursing and the San Francisco VA Medical Center. Scholars will train in a closely-knit cohort, receive mentorship from faculty from different disciplines, and build their skills in community partnered research, implementation and dissemination sciences, policy, and health system transformation. UCSF has a long history of community partnerships with public health systems, social service agencies, and community groups; scholars will have the opportunity to build on these.
