In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, UCSF's Visiting Student Program has been cancelled. Please reach out for further updates by contacting Dan Peterson @ firstname.lastname@example.org at anytime. We appreciate your patience through this.
Welcome to the UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery! We are pleased to announce that our department will be offering a series of virtual informational sessions, with our first session scheduled for June 17th at 5:30pm PST. These sessions are designed to provide information on our program, the various subspecialties, and highlight our faculty and resident daily lives at UCSF. Along the way, our residents will also provide some tips for making the most of your transition to residency and answer questions you might have about UCSF and living in San Francisco. Please note that participation in these information sessions will not impact candidacy for our residency program.
A tentative agenda will be available on our website and included below:
5:30 pm Greetings from the UCSF Orthopaedic Department Chair, Thomas Vail and Residency Director, Hubert Kim 6:00 pm A brief overview of our clinical sites and rotations 6:30 pm Q&A
Please RSVP for this event here. Also, please use the survey to submit questions to our department team leaders. We will have similar evening sessions per month, through September (please check our website for future dates).
Again, please note that participation in these information sessions will not impact candidacy for our residency program.
Please email Dan with any questions @ Daniel.email@example.com. All information will be posted on our website in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned and be well!

UCSF SOM Statement on Visiting Students Program Cancellation:
With the release of the report and recommendations released earlier this week by the Coalition for Physician Accountability, and in anticipation of the re-opening of VSLO/VSAS on May 19th, I want to provide clarity on the UCSF visiting student program and our students doing away rotations.
The safety of our students, patients, and community is paramount. Effective immediately, all visiting and away rotations are cancelled; this includes both our students doing away rotations and visiting students doing rotations at UCSF. I recognize that this presents a significant change for many departments.
If the situation changes and we can begin accepting visiting students again, I will update you. I thank you for your flexibility, creativity, and cooperation these past few months.
UCSF welcomes students from all diverse backgrounds to apply for away clerkships. In doing so, we provide qualified students various Visiting Elective Scholarships through our Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) to help ease the transition into an away rotation.
