UCSF

Context

The UCSF Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (CPT) Postdoctoral Training Program is offered through the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, which explores the complex processes of biology and applies what we learn to the development and rational use of precise therapeutics to improve health. The department is one of three departments in the UCSF School of Pharmacy.

The UCSF School of Pharmacy is a premier graduate-level academic organization dedicated to improving health through precise therapeutics. It succeeds through innovative research, by educating PharmD health professional and PhD science students, and by caring for the therapeutics needs of patients while exploring innovative new models of patient care. The School was founded in 1872 as the first pharmacy school in the American West. It is the recipient of more National Institutes of Health research funding than any other pharmacy school in the United States, every year since 1979. It is consistently among the top universities and colleges receiving total research and development funds for chemistry. The School is one of four professional schools — Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy — and a Graduate Division in UC San Francisco (UCSF).

UCSF is UC San Francisco, a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide. Its schools and the graduate division consistently rank as top programs nationwide in their fields and attract the world’s most talented students. Training takes place in some of the finest “classrooms” in the United States, including UCSF Medical Center, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, the San Francisco VA Medical Center, and numerous clinics throughout Northern California. In all of our schools, students become part of a highly collaborative, solutions-driven culture; each graduating class is expected to set a higher standard for the next when it comes to health leadership. UCSF is one of ten campuses in the University of California and the only UC campus dedicated exclusively to the health sciences.

The University of California is an equal opportunity educational institution, is committed to the principle of diversity, and is particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of people, including minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
