Our idea

Brain Camp was founded in 2016 by a group of UCSF medical students who envisioned a free camp where students who were historically underrepresented and underserved in medicine would have the opportunity to learn about science and healthcare. With each year the we hope to continue in this tradition to provide an exciting and enriching experience for all our students.​​
The camp

Brain Camp @ UCSF is a free 1 week summer camp hosted at the UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus Heights. During the week, we cover a number of different topics across the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, pathology, and more. We also provide a comprehensive overview of the UC application process through our very popular college prep workshop. Please take a look at our "Camp Calendar" page under the Curriculum tab to learn more!
