The UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health (COE) is dedicated to developing a cadre
of well-trained researchers dedicated to issues in women's health.
To achieve this goal, the UCSF Women's Health Clinical Research
Center (WHCRC) is offering a new fellowship program that meets the
long-term goals of increasing both the amount and quality of multidisciplinary
research conducted on women's health and the number of individuals
with successful research careers.
This fellowship program builds on the research success of UCSF,
the institution's commitment to women's health, and the availability
of an extensive array of ongoing research projects in women's health.
Nationally and internationally renowned women's health scholars
can be identified in almost every school, department, and research
unit. This breadth of expertise is supported by a nationally recognized
clinical program in women's health. UCSF is one of the original
six National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health designated
by the Office of Women's Health in the Department of Health and
The Women's Health Clinical Research Center Fellowship is funded
by the Mount Zion
Health Fund and trains young physicians in clinical research
methods in women's health. Fellows are selected based on research
promise, demonstrated interest in women's health issues and excellence
in clinical care and teaching. The fellowship is a two-year training
program that combines didactic training with consistent mentoring
and research collaboration.
