The UC Berkeley–UCSF Joint Medical Program (JMP) attracts people who are passionately dedicated to improving the world’s health through scholarly self-directed yet collaborative inquiry. This is reflected in both the medical curriculum and master’s program.
The masters program provides a broad trans-disciplinary exploration of the social determinants of health, health systems science, population health, health equity, and data science. Students have access to a large range of research topics which is part of what makes the JMP MS unique. Concurrently, students participate in an innovative student-led, faculty supported Foundational Sciences curriculum through Problem-Based Learning (PBL).
As part of the UC Berkeley campus community, our 16 students per cohort are supported by a multidisciplinary, close-knit, and inter-professional team of faculty and staff, committed to individualized support for students’ success.
