PUP is a summer training program for undergraduate students who plan to attend medical, nursing, pharmacy or physical therapy professional school and are interested in a career in clinical research.


The SF BRIDGE program grants a unique opportunity for San Francisco State University (SFSU) students interested in becoming insider researchers to learn about health research, policy and advocacy from UCSF and SFSU faculty.


A joint program with San Francisco State, SF BUILD offers one-on-one mentoring and training in biomedical research.

For High School Students

CURE Internship

The CURE Internship is a paid opportunity for 10 rising African American and Latino high school juniors and seniors to spend two months at UCSF supporting cancer research. The internship, a partnership between the UCSF Early Academic Outreach Program and the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, provides students with not only an exceptional scientific, health and medical environment to further their career interests but also an excellent opportunity for academic development.

Independent Study

Subject to faculty availability, UCSF students can obtain ongoing advice on statistical aspects of their dissertation research or other projects by taking Biostatistics 250 - Research, for 1 to 8 units of credit. A faculty member will provide one-to-one guidance to help the student perform appropriate analyses, understand the results, and accurately write up the methods, findings and interpretations. Biostatistics 250 is intended for research that involves topics not covered in regular courses and not appropriate for biostatistical consulting.
