Program dates: July 9-26
Application deadline: April 5
Application: 2013 PITCH Application (Note: Application has three separate sections that must be completed and submitted by April 5)
PITCH is an opportunity for incoming high school juniors, particularly those who may be the first in their families to pursue a four-year college degree, to spend three weeks at UCSF, exploring careers in healthcare, science, and medicine, looking into the educational pathways that lead to different careers, and learning professional skills that will help them along the way.
PITCH students are mentored by current UCSF students in the Graduate Division, Dental school, Pharmacy school, Medical school, and Nursing school as they complete a group research project and receive one-on-one and small group academic advising from CEP counselors.
