Discovering who you are

    The UC Davis Health System recognizes the fundamental importance of basic and clinical research studies as the basis for improving patient care and the treatment of disease
  • ePortfolio
    At matriculation you will be provided with your ePortfolio password.  This site is a unique electronic briefcase that you can take with you for the rest of your professional life.  Internally designed, it is intended as a place for you to journal, collect your transcripts and evaluations, participate in self reflection exercises and begin to write you curriculum vitae.  It is your tool to save those articles and lectures that you collect along your career path, and truly is designed to be your personal portfolio.
