Founded by UCSF MSTP and PRIME students, Brain Camp @ UCSF is a free, immersive, week-long experience for underserved high school students in San Francisco, led by UCSF medical students and faculty. We will explore the fascinating anatomy of the brain, delve into the complex interplay between mind and behavior, and host college prep workshops, all at UCSF. The Camp also features many hands-on activities including suturing, brain dissections performing the basic neuro exam, and much more! The application and other info can be found at

Student quotes from the post-camp survey:

You guys really exceeded my expectations for a virtual program and everything ran almost perfectly. I was not expecting to get a brain camp package so that was really sweet and made my day. I appreciate all the staff who put work into making this possible this summer, you guys are amazing!

I absolutely loved it! Personally, it was one of the best weeks since quarantine started.
