UCSF Patient Care Fund - for Clinical Housestaff

Funded by UCSF Medical Center and supported by the Deans Office, School of Medicine. Sponsored by the Residents' Council.

What is it?

The Patient Care Fund was established in 2002 in recognition of the special perspective of UCSF resident and clinical fellows in identifying opportunities to enhance the care of UCSF Medical Center patients.

How does it work?

Each year, the Patient Care Fund Committee, composed of representatives of UCSF Medical Center, UCSF Office of Graduate Medical Education and the Residents Council, accept project proposals for review. In total, $50,000 is made available to fund approved projects. Projects are judged based on relative patient care impact, sustainability and compliance with UCSF policies.
