About UCSF

At the University of California – San Francisco (UCSF), you can expect the commitment to academic excellence that the University of California System embodies. However, unlike the other nine UC campuses, UCSF focuses exclusively on advanced research and graduate study in health care and life sciences.

UCSF administers its academics through the following schools:

  • School of Dentistry
  • School of Medicine
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Pharmacy
  • Graduate Division

These schools combine to provide an unparalleled range of opportunities, from degree programs to research. UCSF’s outstanding academics place it in an elite category of medical schools. The schools of Pharmacy and Medicine are especially well regarded.

Though specific procedures vary by school, admissions at UCSF are highly competitive. For example, the School of Pharmacy narrows its application pool by inviting select applicants to participate in an on-campus interview. As part of this interview, you’ll participate in a 45-minute essay exercise to help evaluate your skill as a writer.

Financial aid at UCSF comes in many forms, including grants, scholarships, loans and work-study. Some programs are institutionally funded, while others are offered by the state or federal government. In order to apply for financial aid, you must file the FAFSA as well as the UCSF financial aid application.

Overall Rating

Great school however it in situated in the middle of the city so it might be daunting to get between the different campuses. Like any medical campus, UCSF is joined at the hip with the Medical center on Parnassus ave. and you see many teaching faculty working next door.
