UC San Francisco (UCSF) is partnering with the National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP), an interdisciplinary research consortium for physicians and nurses, to drive innovation and improvements in health equity and health care. UCSF joins Duke University and four other universities across the country as partners in this program.
The NCSP is a two-year postdoctoral fellowship for nurses and physicians. The program will equip future health care leaders with the skills to reduce and eliminate health disparities in their communities, invent new models of clinical care delivery and inform policy.
“By having the medical and nursing schools at UCSF join us, we can offer opportunities for more doctorally prepared nurses and physicians who will lead change as leaders and collaborators,” said Linda Sarna, past board chair (2016-18) for the program and dean of the UCLA School of Nursing.
