Excellence Through Community Engagement Learning (EXCEL)

Home / Campus / ( Published on 2014-05-06 )

The EXCEL program (formerly the Community Outreach Internship Program) is a clerical/administrative training program which aims to develop the potential workforce in UCSF’s surrounding communities and provide San Francisco residents with access to UCSF employment opportunities.

The program is a work-based learning program that uses both classroom and on-the-job training to prepare participants for career path jobs in the healthcare sector. After completing 10 weeks of computer, administrative, customer service, and medical terminology training at JVS, UCSF’s community based training partner,  participants are placed in paid, four-month clerical/administrative internships within UCSF’s various departments, throughout both the campus and medical center.

EXCEL is a collaborative effort between UCSF’s Temporary Employment Program, UCSF’s Office of Community and Government Relations and various UCSF Campus and UCSF Medical Center departments.  For more information about the EXCEL please contact Damon Lew, Assistant Director of Community Relations.
