Hospital Schedule (Wednesday)

Welcome Galileo Academy Students


The Volunteer Services Department is please to offer a joint venture with Galileo Academy and California Pacific Medical Center called, “The City Within.”  During this semester you will experience and witness the inner workings of California Pacific Medical Center.

For sixteen weeks, we will be learning from our dedicated staff of professionals about different areas of our medical center. We will strive to learn about educational requirements for different departments, as well as, career paths chosen by our health care staff.  This is a unique and very special opportunity to learn about future career choices that are available in a health care environment. We hope you will find this series interesting and that you will ask our knowledgeable staff many questions.

You will be exposed to a very serious and professional environment.  Our presenters have donated their time and effort to provide us with information in their area of specialty.  Please treat them with your utmost respect and consideration. We hope your experience at California Pacific Medical Center.


We will be meeting on Wednesday mornings at no later than 7:50 am in the lobby of the Pacific Campus, 2333 Buchanan Street.   Please note the meeting room locations on the schedule below; if you are late or get lost, the staff at the information desks will guide you to our meeting room location.  For meetings at the CPMC Van Ness, CPMC Davies or Saint Francis campuses, please allow yourself extra travel time to arrive before 7:50am.

Always meet in the Lobby of the Pacific Campus unless notified
