Not only do we offer medical care in San Francisco, but we also have outreach clinics around Northern California and beyond.
UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital is pleased to offer a two-year Administrative Fellowship Program* that provides future healthcare leaders a hands-on educational and training opportunity exploring the complex environment of a leading academic medical center in an urban setting.
The program provides a postgraduate with the opportunity for project-based work in a variety of functions and areas. This exposure will allow the fellow to explore the complex and unique environment that an academic medical center has to offer.
UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital are recognized throughout the world as leaders in health care, known for innovative medicine, advanced technology and compassionate care.
It is an exciting time to be part of this leading institution. UCSF Medical Center is currently engaged in many projects including the building of a new 289-bed complex scheduled to open in early 2015 to serve children, women and cancer patients adjacent to the existing 43-acre biomedical campus in the Mission Bay area of the city. With expertise that covers virtually all conditions, including cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders, organ transplantation and orthopedics as well as special services for women and children, UCSF Medical Center has been included on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of the top hospitals in the United States for more than a decade.
As an academic medical center, UCSF Medical Center offers pioneering treatments not widely available elsewhere:
|•||The only cancer center in the Bay Area designated “comprehensive” by the National Cancer Institute. The UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Institute is dedicated to finding new and better treatments for cancer patients.|
|•||Exceptional nurses; UCSF Medical Center was awarded Magnet Hospital designation in 2012 for excellence in nursing care, an honor it shares with less than 7 percent of the nation’s 5,700 hospitals registered with the American Hospital Association.|
|•||Northern California’s first nationally designated Center of Excellence in Women’s Health, offering specialized care and health education for women.|
|•||The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, the recipient of two Center of Excellence Awards from the National Institutes of Health for its healing-care approach.|
|•||One of the top six hospitals in the nation in neurology and neurosurgery and the first hospital certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.|
|•||One of the nation’s largest centers for bone marrow and organ transplantation and the only hospital in San Francisco to offer heart, lung, bone marrow, kidney and liver transplants.|
|•||AIDS services, provided collaboratively with San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) are considered the most comprehensive in the nation.|
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital ranks among the nation’s best children’s hospitals in nine specialties and is one of the top-ranked centers in California, according to the 2013-2014 Best Children’s Hospitals survey conducted by the U.S. News Media Group. It is the top Northern California children’s hospital in cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, and neurology, according to these rankings. As San Francisco’s only children’s hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital provides access to more than 150 pediatric physician specialists practicing in more than 50 areas of medicine. Programs designed specifically for young patients include a 50-bed neonatal intensive care nursery, The Madison Clinic for Pediatric Diabetes, child life and school programs and recreational therapy for recovering kids.
In addition to world-class medical knowledge, we believe that the compassion of our physicians, nurses and other staff are key to our success. We receive countless letters of gratitude from patients and their families, a true measure of the valuable and caring service we provide.
