VA Fellowship in Women's Health

The Department of Veterans Affairs is dedicated to developing a cadre of well-trained researchers in women's health to advance healthcare for women Veterans. To achieve this goal, the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center (SFVAMC) in collaboration with the UCSF Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences offers a training program that meets the long-term goals of increasing both the number and quality of multidisciplinary research conducted in women's health and the number of individuals with successful research careers.


The senior faculty who serve as mentors have successful careers in women’s health research or diseases of special relevance to women, and strong track records of mentoring trainees toward independent research careers.

Salary with full benefits will be provided at the appropriate UCSF post-graduate level. Women’s Health Fellows will have office space at the SFVAMC.

The Fellowship Program is co-directed by Karla Kerlikowske, MD, Co-Director of the SFVAMC Women Veterans’ Comprehensive Health Center and Professor of Medicine, and Epidemiology and Biostatistics, UCSF; and George F Sawaya, MD, Professor, UCSF Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, and Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
