Clinical Rotations

Medical students, residents, and mid-level (physician assistant and nurse practitioner) students are welcome to apply for a clinical rotation at AHS. We are staffed by physicians who are dedicated to teaching primary care medicine, many of whom are on UCSF faculty as Clinical Instructors.

Preference is given to students fluent in an Asian language and in upper-level training. We try to accomodate all requests, but are limited by language fit and capacity of available preceptors. All interested students are encouraged to send in or fax a cover letter and CV to AHS, c/o Dr. Nghe Yang. If granted a rotation, students are then required to submit the following documentation and attend an orientation with HR prior to the start date.

Please contact Pipeline Coordinator Dr. Nghe Yang,, with further questions.
