UCSF / UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy

About Us

Founded in 2008, the Consortium leverages law and policy to address the conditions in health care systems and society that together enable health and well-being. The Consortium envisions a world in which all individuals and communities can attain the highest level of health possible, defined on their own terms. To this end, the Consortium builds multidisciplinary and multistakeholder collaborations among faculty and students of UCSF and UC Hastings Law and the patients, clients, communities, and organizations we serve alongside. Through these collaborations, we engage in education and training, research, and public service that advances health and health equity. In all areas, the Consortium’s work is guided by core values of empathy, intellectual and academic integrity, and optimism.
