The end of the year is an ideal time to reflect on milestones. In 2017, UCSF Fresno accomplished many achievements and received gifts and honors – all aimed at improving health in the San Joaquin Valley. Here’s a look at some of our shining moments.
- UCSF Fresno filled all available residency spots, representing a 100 percent match for the seventh year in a row.
- The fifth class of San Joaquin Valley PRIME medical students started clinical training with us. We train over 300 medical students on a rotating basis at UCSF Fresno each year.
- The Britz family donated $250,000 for lung research.
- The Peters Foundation donated $50,000 for physician wellness.
- The Central Valley Community Foundation awarded $80,000 to UCSF Fresno for medical student scholarships.
