San Francisco General Hospital Training and Education Programs for Underserved Populations (STEP UP) is a new initiative aimed at aligning the multiple SFGH graduate medical education programs that focus on training residents to care for underserved patients. UCSF departments currently taking part in this initiative include Family and Community Medicine (FCM), Internal Medicine (IM), Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Psychiatry, though all UCSF trainees who rotate through San Francisco General Hospital are eligible to take part in STEP UP programs.

Residents committed to working with underserved populations are eligible to obtain the SFGH STEP UP Certificate in Health Equity. Completion of the certificate program demonstrates the achievement of educational competencies considered fundamental to future work with underserved populations.

Details of the Health Equity Certificate program and competency map can be found on
