Wednesday, June 7, 2017
3:00-5:30 pm
Aldea Center, Parnassus

  • 2017-18Our Academy meetings are open to the UCSF campus and are a wonderful chance to connect junior faculty and other medical educators with the Academy. Please take this opportunity to invite faculty from your departments or other educational spheres to join us for the summer meeting.The meeting topic is mission-based management and supporting the educational mission at UCSF. Supporting the educational mission is a challenge for academic medical centers across the country. There are some current initiatives within UCSF departments and in the School of Medicine to engage with this need which is an opportunity to learn from each other and help support these efforts.
  • The goal of the session is to share best practices and brainstorm as a community how to support our educational mission. The session will include a panel presentation, small group breakouts, and large group discussion. Our panelists are Susannah Cornes (Neurology), Dixie Horning (OB/GYN), Kevin Souza (School of Medicine), and Dan West (Pediatrics).
  • Also invited are the Associate Chairs of Finance and Administration from the departments and some of the departmental finance managers. Some of them have expressed an interest in learning more about the educational mission and about best practices across departments to support education.
