An extensive network of faculty, researchers, and global health practitioners works with the Institute for Global Health Sciences to teach, advise, and mentor students in the Master of Science program. Many of the faculty and mentors are leaders in their fields and come from the UCSF Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Pharmacy, as well as from other UC campuses, Bay Area universities, and the wider global health community. The program has a low faculty-to-student ratio and provides close advising to each student.
