Visiting Students & Outside Learners

For currently enrolled medical students at other institutions, you can find more information about becoming a visiting student at UCSF here. For other learners interested in a career in ObGyn, please see below.

Learning Opportunities Open to Community Members

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to connect individuals from the community with UCSF providers for on-site observation or shadow experiences. However, there are many other ways students from other institutions and community members can experience the clinical or research settings here at UCSF.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Volunteer with UCSF - Volunteers have many opportunities to serve under the supervision of professional staff and enhance the quality of patient care, learn new skills, and explore a career in the health field. The types of volunteer assignments we have involve socializing and interacting with adult and pediatric patients, families, and staff in our hospitals and outpatient clinic settings.

  • Volunteer with San Francisco General Hospital - Opportunities include direct patient care activities at ZSFG, supported by the mission to provide quality health care and trauma service with compassion and respect, as well as indirect patient care activities such as research supported by the vision to advance community wellness by aligning care, discovery, and education.
