The Black Student Health Alliance (BSHA) is a student organization devoted to fostering community among students in the Schools of Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Physical Therapy and the Graduate Division at UCSF. In collaboration with other campus organizations, we aim to increase diversity within the student body, as well as among faculty and staff. As an extension of this mission, we offer support and guidance to students as they navigate academic institutions and prepare for careers in the health professions. BSHA provides an extended community of peers and mentors by building alliances among professionals and alumni in all health fields, and encourages the collaboration of resources and expertise. Through community events and outreach activities, BSHA contributes to the enrichment of the Black student community in particular, and to the broader UCSF community at large.

CIENCIA aims to provide an opportunity for the UCSF community to hear specialized, technical talks in Spanish, foster the development of Spanish speaking skills, and establish networks with faculty with strong international connections. More broadly, CIENCIA was formed to enrich the cultural experience at UCSF by providing an environment to hear impressive scientific talks in a language other than English. To accomplish these goals, CIENCIA organizes a monthly scientific seminar series in Spanish, inviting world-renowned Hispanic scientists, and a variety of social, cultural, and educational activities. Through the process, participants will have the unique opportunity to experience high-level talks in Spanish and even gain general and scientific Spanish vocabulary which will lead to greater opportunities post-graduation and/or better interaction with Spanish speaking colleagues. Furthermore, by integrating UCSF-based and non-UCSF based organizations, this group aims to establish broad connections with both Spanish speaking professionals and those committed to learning or improving their proficiency with the language, especially as it relates to their career field.

A collaboration among faculty, residents, students, and volunteers, UCSF’s Community Dental Clinic has been working to improve the health of San Francisco’s homeless population for the past decade.The philosophy of the Community Dental Clinic is to motivate patients to seek healthcare and to prevent dental disease through education and preventive dentistry. CDC is guided by three mutually supportive sets of aspirations: (1) For the clients- to provide oral health education and treatment.To achieve a positive impact on the lives of our patients; (2) For the students- to create a setting in which students can learn, teach, and practice clinical skills while cultivating sensitivity and comfort in interactions with the underserved population; and (3) For the Community- To use the Dental Clinic as a forum for education and health care service. To promote advocacy for the needs of the homeless population. Ultimately, we hope this experience will broaden our vision and make us more able and compassionate health care providers for any population we choose to serve.

This grant mechanism provides support for senior fellows, instructors, assistant, associate and full professor faculty from historically disenfranchised racial and ethnic groups that are under-represented in health sciences, or from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The goal is to encourage fellows and faculty from these groups to remain in academia as career professionals and thus to increase the diversity of our faculty. Research can be any area relevant to clinical and translational research which includes bench-to-bedside/laboratory-to-human (T1) translational research, clinical research and bedside-to-community/evidence-to-practice (T2/T3) research. Social, behavioral and economic research as it affects health is included. If not directly involving the study of people or populations, the proposed research must be clearly justified as being on the path to potential use in humans.
