Compassion Ambassador Program (CAmP)

Modeled after our Sanford Scholar Award Program at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, we are excited to launch the Compassion Ambassador Program (CAmP) with four pilot partner schools of medicine this year. Eligible first-year medical students at those partner institutions can apply with a faculty/staff mentor from their institution to propose a project related to empathy and compassion for implementation by May 31, 2025.

All applications will be evaluated through a competitive review process, with up to 15 students ultimately selected to receive a CAmP Scholar Award. CAmP Scholars will attend a 3-day summer program August 7-9, 2024, in San Diego at the UC San Diego La Jolla campus. The summer program is designed to enhance overall project efficacy, further develop empathy and compassion skills, and create a cohesive cadre of student leaders in empathy and compassion.  

We look forward to announcing the first cohort of CAmP Scholars soon!
