At UC San Francisco, we are driven by the idea that when the best research, the best teaching and the best patient care converge, we can deliver breakthroughs that help heal the world.
The HEAL Initiative works in Native American reservations, prisons, and the poorest villages on our planet. We pair dedicated U.S. providers with local health professionals who are already working in these communities. HEAL fellows work together on the frontline for two years. They develop skills essential to global health delivery through immersive training, an on-line Master’s in Public Health at UC Berkeley, and intensive mentorship. HEAL will be sustainable with scale since we leverage existing funds. HEAL makes serving the poorest of the poor the first choice for health professionals.
