The Teach for UCSF Certificate in Teaching for Equity and Inclusion aims to create a path for UCSF educators to develop best practices in equitable and inclusive teaching that they can apply in didactic and clinical settings across the continuum of health professions education. This certification consists of 1 pre-requisite, 7 required workshops and one selective. Participants demonstrate skills learned by completing assessment exercises during the workshops.


To advance faculty members’ skills to ensure an equitable and inclusive teaching and learning environment.
