UCSF School of Medicine has introduced a new, innovative curriculum to prepare medical students for their future roles, and the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics plays a key role in that curriculum.

The new Bridges curriculum, introduced a year ago, immerses students in clinical teams early in their education and emphasizes inquiry, asking questions that push understanding of human health and disease. It also provides dedicated time for students to work on scholarly research projects.
