Chinese Health Professional Student Association (CHPSA) primary goal is to promote respectable understanding of Chinese culture and its diversity to students at UCSF. More importantly, CHPSA will emphasize Chinese culture relevant to medical and dental treatments and facilitate culturally sensitive patient centered care at UCSF. We hope to not only promote interprofessional cooperation amongst various health professional schools, but also to promote such cooperation amongst students of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, not limited to students of Chinese ethnic background.

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.
