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

About Us

As law and science continue to overlap, lawyers, scientists, and medical professionals must be able to navigate both worlds fluently.  Founded with this vision in mind, the Consortium bridges two leading institutions by utilizing education, research, clinical training, and service.

Established in 2008, the Consortium has developed and supported collaborative educational and professional opportunities for students and faculty at UCSF and UC Hastings, including a number of research projects touching upon healthcare prices, access to medical care, and quality of healthcare.

The mission of the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science and Health Policy is to support interdisciplinary collaboration on a wide variety of subjects at the intersections of law, science, and health policy. The Consortium concentrates on three broad areas: education, research, and clinical training and service.
