Medical Student Electives

We encourage medical students who are interested in disease pathogenesis and diagnosis to consider an elective in Pathology and/or Laboratory Medicine.

The Departments of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine provide 2-4 week medical students electives in surgical and autopsy pathology and hematology at Moffitt-Long Hospital, and in general laboratory medicine and microbiology at San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center. During these rotations, students are an integral part of the daily work with hands-on exposure to the various aspects of pathology and/or laboratory medicine. In addition, a one year research fellowship is available with advance arrangement.

These electives are available to UCSF medical students, as well as students visiting from other institutions. Visiting students must make arrangements for an elective in advance; additional information for visiting students can be found at https://meded.ucsf.edu/visiting-student-program.
