The Office of Developmental Primary Care has benefited from partnerships with faculty across the University of California, San Francisco and from relationships with a variety of community agencies that serve people with developmental disabilities. We aim to expose students to models of interprofessional training. Some of our best teachers are the people that we serve, their family members, and caregivers. If you would like to offer opportunities for students, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
