University of California, San Francisco - "The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is a public land-grant research university in San Francisco, California. It is part of the University of California system and it is dedicated entirely to health science. It is a major center of medical and biological research and teaching. UCSF was founded as Toland Medical College in 1864, and in 1873 it affiliated itself with the University of California, becoming its Medical Department. In the same year, it incorporated the California College of Pharmacy and in 1881 it established a dentistry school. Its facilities were located in both Berkeley and San Francisco. In 1964, the school gained full administrative independence as a campus of the UC system headed by a chancellor, and in 1970 it gained its current name. Historically based at Parnassus Heights and several other locations throughout the city, UCSF developed a second major campus in the newly redeveloped Mission Bay in the early 2000s. UCSF is considered one of the world's preeminent medical and life sciences universities. According to the U.S. News & World Report, UCSF's medical school is ranked 2nd nationally for its clinical training, its pharmacy school is ranked 2nd nationally, and many of its nursing programs are ranked similarly highly.
