Women's Health Shortcuts

“I didn't think science and research could be so much fun.”
—Jennifer Poeng

“In the first two weeks we received over 100 applications. We interviewed 20 and chose 10. We felt very bad that we couldn't take all 100.”
—Patricia Robertson, MD

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is currently seeking additional funding for next year's internship program.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to help the next generation coming forward,” says Katherine Tick, director of development at UCSF's National Center for Excellence in Women's Health. “It's an opportunity for all of us to make a difference. Each of the summer interns comes from challenging personal backgrounds. When they enter mainstream hard science, both they and the field benefits. This is a tremendous chance to bring diversity to the field of women's health.”
