UC President hears from Doctors Academy students and physicians in training at UCSF Fresno

UC President Janet Napolitano, UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland and other UC officials visited UCSF Fresno recently. The leaders discussed health issues in the San Joaquin Valley and how the University of California is addressing needs and contributing to improved health in the region, particularly through educational pipeline programs and physician training at UCSF Fresno. As part of the visit, UC officials talked with students from the UCSF Fresno Doctors Academy programs at Caruthers, Selma and Sunnyside high schools. The students posed questions, shared their goals and asked for words of wisdom from the group, which also included medical students in the San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education and UCSF Fresno medical residents. The main messages: pursue your dreams, surround yourself with people who support and encourage you and don't give up.
