Giving

Philanthropy plays a crucial role in supporting the activities of the Department of Emergency Medicine. The faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine provide the best possible care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay for services, conduct leading-edge research and train the next generation of medical professionals. Your gift to the Department of Emergency Medicine will allow us to continue this commitment to excellence.

UCSF is a recognized leader for developing superior clinicians and scientists and has developed a national reputation for excellence in residency training. The training and education of residents are integral components of the Department of Emergency Medicine. Residency, the years of clinical training immediately following the completion of medical school, is a formative time for young physicians. During these years residents learn not only the basics of patient care, but also leadership skills, research methods, cross cultural competence, professionalism, and communication skills. The EM Residency Program is home to the top residents in the country. Applicants are attracted not only by the extraordinary breadth of research and clinical faculty, but also by the diversity of San Francisco's population. UCSF is also a model of community service and provision of care to under-served communities.
