Partners in Research and Patient Care
Since 1864, SFGH and the UCSF School of Medicine have worked in close collaboration to provide health care services for the people of San Francisco.
SFGH is one of UCSF’s primary teaching hospitals, where medical residents train under UCSF faculty and City staff. Today, more than 2,000 UCSF physicians and staff from all four UCSF professional schools work side-by-side at the hospital with 3,500 employees of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
UCSF at SFGH offers the triple benefit of education, patient care and research. Each of these endeavors is world-class, evident in the high number of teaching awards, research grants and professional commendations showered upon the UCSF team at SFGH. Best of all, the teaching, research and clinical care are not isolated, but work together providing real-time benefit to patients and state of the art opportunities for physicians and other providers.
