LCOE APP at SFSU

The UCSF LCOE Aspiring Physicians Program (APP) at San Francisco State is a six-week intensive summer program where students participate in medical school preparatory workshops, collaborate with local community-based organizations to create research-driven fact sheets, engage in intensive health policy workshops, introductory MCAT preparation, and partake in mentorship aimed at building their exposure, access and confidence in attaining a career in medicine. All students selected will receive a $2,000 stipend during the six-week summer program. The academic year provides mentorship activities, professional development seminars, and medical school readiness workshops. All of these activities will be virtual in 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The LCOE APP at SFSU program is led by UCSF LCOE faulty Dr. Tomás Magaña and SFSU SF BUILD Liaison, Dr. Kelechi Uwaezuoke.
