UCSF Latinx Center of Excellence (LCOE)

The UCSF Latinx Center of Excellence (LCOE) is an innovative center established in 2018 to increase Latinx representation among physicians in academic centers by working with undergraduates in Fresno and San Francisco and with UCSF medical students, residents, and faculty. 

lcoeThe UCSF LCOE will elevate the capacity of UCSF students, residents, and faculty to conduct Latinx-oriented clinical and health services research, catalyze Latinx-oriented research at UCSF, and serve as a leading national resource and education center on Latinx health.

The UCSF LCOE is jointly funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and UCSF. The center is housed within the UCSF School of Medicine, with close affiliation with the Center for Vulnerable Populations at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG).

Dr. Alicia Fernández, UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations (UCSF CVP) core faculty and Director of the CVP Program in Latinx and Immigrant Health, is founder and director of UCSF's LCOE.
