This is a reclassification of her existing role as Director of Student Assessment, in recognition of the contributions she has made in that position and the added responsibilities that are now necessary given advances in the field and redesign of the UCSF School of Medicine education curriculum. She will join our outstanding educational team to ensure that UCSF recruits, educates and graduates a diverse, talented, committed and competent cohort of medical students each year.
