    For Volunteer Clinical Faculty

    Our Volunteer Clinical Faculty (VCF) members are crucial to our mission of teaching women's health to our UCSF medical students, residents and fellows. From facilitating small group learning in the first two years of medical school, to teaching pelvic exams, to supervising the learning of surgical technique in the operating room, our VCF faculty impart their expertise in women's health to the next generation of clinicians in obstetrics and gynecology. Our teaching sites include the UCSF Parnassus/Mount Zion campus, San Francisco General Hospital, Marin Maternity Services, California Pacific Medical Center, Kaiser Oakland, Kaiser San Francisco, Highland Hospital, as well as Kaiser Walnut Creek, Alta Bates, and Kaiser Honolulu for our residents.

    We deeply appreciate the countless hours and intense passion for teaching, so generously donated by our Volunteer Clinical Faculty.

    Thank you!
