The University of California, San Francisco is the only University of California institution dedicated exclusively to health sciences education. The midwifery program is based in the School of Nursing and has been in existence since 1977.  The residency program is more than fifty years old and is based in the School of Medicine.  There has been a longstanding collaboration between the two programs at San Francisco’s public hospital where the midwifery service has an independent practice and since 2016, we have been co-educating midwifery students and ob/gyn residents clinically on Labor and Delivery at the University Hospital as well as collaborating in a myriad of didactic and simulation activities.
