    UCSF designates this educational activity for a maximum of 2.50 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

    UCSF's Volunteer Clinical Professors (VCP) are crucial to our mission of teaching women's health to our 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 VCP impart their expertise in women's health to the next generation of clinicians in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our teaching sites include the UCSF Mission Bay/Mount Zion campus, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, Marin Maternity Services, California Pacific Medical Center, Kaiser Oakland, San Francisco, Daly City, Redwood City, Union City, St. Luke's and 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 Professors.

    Thank you!
