Undergraduate Research Internship students having a discussion

Undergraduate Research Internship (URI)

Founded in 2009, the UCSF/ Kaiser Permanente Undergraduate Research Internship (URI) was created to build a supportive pathway for underrepresented University of California, Berkeley, students interested in a career in medicine to address specific challenges these students face.

Annually, URI engages 16 interns in a meaningful summer research project, clinical shadowing at UCSF in OBGYN, Anesthesia and Family Medicine, didactics, leadership training, and extensive mentoring during the 8-week program. The program directors also offer mentoring through the medical school application process.
