ENVISION Internship Program

ENVISION is an internship program in partnership with UCSF Department of Neurosurgery and the non-profit organization Oasis for Girls to expose young high school girls of color from under-represented communities in San Francisco to careers in the medical field and to help them build important professional skills to enrich their future.

Over the course of 4-5 weeks, ENVISION interns rotate through the clinic, laboratory, and operating room to gain exposure to diverse healthcare occupations. In the program’s final sessions, young women craft an actionable Next Steps Transition Plan based on personal, education, and career goals. Annually, the majority of participants report positive changes after their internship experience, including greater motivation to attend college and pursue careers in high growth fields. Since its launch, ENVISION serves 45 young women each year through this program.
