Scientific Writing Course

The Department of Surgery’s 10-session Scientific Writing Course is intended for UCSF faculty, postdoctoral fellows and residents whose research focus is in the biological sciences and clinical/translational medicine. Faculty have priority for enrollment.

The course objective is to learn specific ways to marshal the details of a biomedical research paper or grant proposal into a clear, concise, and comprehensible story that will be understandable to an interdisciplinary readership (papers), or meet the agency's review criteria (proposals).
