International Health Student Interest Group (IHSIG)

Mission: Educate and raise awareness in the UCSF community about international health issues, and help students pursue their interests in the field. Students from all UCSF schools are welcome to participate.

Organization: The group is informally led by students who volunteer or are elected to the position of coordinator. A faculty sponsor with substantial international experience provides guidance to the organization. Student coordinators are responsible for registering IHSIG with the Office of Student Activities and making budget requests. Coordinators are responsible for organizing speakers, scheduling space for meetings and activities, and maintaining listserv and web pages. Monthly meetings for all members are usually held on the UCSF campus monthly. More frequent sub-group meetings may focus on particular activities planned and agreed upon by the Interest Group.

Communication: IHSIG manages a listserv with over 200 subscribers. To subscribe, fill out the form at:

IHSIG usually holds monthly dinner meetings with a student presentation on an IH topic of interest.
