Medical Student Clerkships
Where to stay
If you don’t have friends or relatives in the SF Bay Area we would suggest starting with craigslistOpens new window, UCSF's housing listOpens new window, or SFGateOpens new window. Clara Rubin-Smith, our medical student program coordinator, also has occasional “leads” on student housing.
Where to play
Residents, interns, office staff, nurses, hospitalists and other attending physicians tend to be a great source for recommendations. You can also log on to SFGateOpens new window for lots of happenings around the Bay Area.
How to get around if you don’t have a vehicle
San Francisco has a very good mass transit system. We suggest you start with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)Opens new window and San Francisco MuniOpens new window. California Pacific has shuttles to and from the Civic Center BART and Muni stations, and to all its campuses from the main Pacific Campus.
Are there any other ways to get the “flavor” of CPMC?
Yes. Contact us with your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you our Internal Medicine house staff newsletter, Riprap.
What if you want to talk with any of our house staff?
Feel free to e-mail or call us and we can ask a resident or intern to call you back to discuss their experiences here as students or as current house staff.
We hope to see you soon!
