Center for Intelligent Imaging Education and Internships

The Center combines transformative research with education, which carries in its wake the broadening participation of women, under-represented minorities, and the economically underprivileged. That means starting early and systematically building a training pipeline which culminates with graduate and postdoctoral training along with exposure to industrial research practices and environment.

Graduate and Professional Students

At the highest level of engagement with Center faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, and other clinician and non-clinician collaborators, we will create a scientific community that is actively engaged in journal clubs, seminars, invited talks, mini-courses, workshops and hack-a-thons. UCSF has world-renowned medical and health sciences graduate training programs, but our Center welcomes students from around the Bay Area and beyond including partner institutions like UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, San Francisco State, and University of San Francisco.

Undergraduate Students

The Center will train approximately 20 undergraduates per year, drawn from institutions around the Bay Area, providing trainees with a mentor in the field, providing a systematic and positive experience in conducting scientific research, and exposure to problems and applications having societal concerns – all while encouraging an integrative approach to science and engineering that may not be as readily available at their home institutions.

High School Students

The Center's HSTP will work with the San Francisco Unified School District to expose its nearly 56,000 students to our pioneering work, through popular science talks, detailed demonstrations, and discussion sessions at various SFUSD campuses, introducing image analysis and basic AI concepts.


Along with educational experiences in our own labs and offices, students will gain exposure to industry through our many external collaborations. A summer or semester spent with the Center provides the foundation for further research and innovation far into the future. To build a multidisciplinary community for research in intelligent imaging, industry partners are encouraged to provide several-week engagements for employees to participate in center activities at UCSF.
