Advisors: Make a Match, Go!

UCSF Health Hub makes it easy to advise, reducing the discovery and courting process, paperwork and expectation setting for you and companies you want to advise.

Once you have applied to Health Hub Connect as a UCSF advisor, you create an advisor page that provides deep insight into your skills, industry expertise, and the types of projects that are right for you. You will be matched to great companies (they've had to qualify too) looking for advisors like you. You'll receive an email introduction with a potential match. If you decide it's a project for you, you can connect privately. It's up to you and the company how long the relationship goes.
UCSF Health Hub will periodically send out tips and status requests and help ensure the relationship works.
