We work with a variety of health and research institutions on initiatives to accelerate research.  These partnerships enable us to expand our reach to more diverse patient populations and facilitate collaborative projects that quicken the pace at which discoveries impact public health.

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital

San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Owned by the US Department of Veterans Affairs, the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center (SFVAMC) is affiliated with all four UCSF schools: dentistry, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy. The two institutions began their affiliation in 1968, and today more than 200 full- and part-time UCSF physicians are on staff and providing patient care at SFVAMC. The site serves as a major teaching hospital for UCSF residents, funding positions for UCSF residents who train there and providing clinical training for one-third of UCSF medical students.
