UC San Francisco - Master's of Science in Biomedical Imaging

The Master’s of Science in Biomedical Imaging (MSBI) program is aimed at students with Bachelors degrees, advanced pre-doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, residents, researchers and faculty who wish to master biomedical imaging and research methods to enhance their research designs and broaden their investigative projects. The program can be completed in one year of full-time study.

Course work includes instruction in core theory, drawn from imaging physics, engineering and mathematics and linked to physiology and disease processes, providing a foundation in interdisciplinary scholarship. In addition to introducing the fundamentals underlying image formation, hands-on laboratory courses with experiments relevant for characterizing pathologies, monitoring response to therapy and assessing the underlying mechanisms and etiologies, will be offered.  Electives allow students to customize the program to their interests, including the option to perform independent research studies.

UC Natural Reserve System Field Studies Program

The Natural Reserve System of the University of California is accepting applications for the Spring 2018 offering of the UC Natural Reserve System field course, California Ecology and Conservation.  All UC undergraduates who have a 2.5+ GPA, are in good standing with their home campus, and have successfully completed an introductory biology course are eligible to apply.  Applications can be found here and are due on October 23, 2017. 

This relatively new program, launched in Fall 2015, has been a tremendous success. Students from across the UC system have gained strong independent scientific research skills while immersed in the training grounds of the UC natural reserves, from Big Sur to the Mojave Desert, from coastal redwoods to California grasslands to high altitude bristlecone pines. Check out this video and this article to get glimpses of what students are calling the most rewarding experience in their undergraduate careers.

California Ecology and Conservation brings together 27 undergraduates from across the UC system for seven weeks of intensive learning at NRS reserves.  Experienced field instructors help undergraduates transform into scientists.  Students complete a series of increasingly independent research studies while learning to notice natural patterns, frame questions into feasible research projects, and practice standard field techniques.  At the conclusion of each project, students analyze their data and present their findings in oral presentations and written reports.  Students hone their research, public speaking, and scientific writing skills with constant practice and feedback. All the while, students gain a working familiarity with California’s diverse ecosystems.

More information is available on the course website.  For further questions, please send an email to: CAecology@ucop.edu.
