Meet the UME Team

In the News

  • A more fully integrated curriculum, grounded in Inquiry as a habit of mind frees students to apply knowledge and empowers our faculty members to teach at the edge of the known.

  • Last month's Bridges Curriculum Foundational Sciences retreat, around 100 clinical and basic science faculty leaders, as well as student representatives, met to workshop and experiment with the new Bridges Curricular roadmaps.

  • The University of British Columbia recently went through a curriculum renewal, and we were lucky to have Dr. Ian Scott here at UCSF to share pearls from that experience.

  • We’re delighted to welcome a new colleague to our UME team. DoQuyen Tran-Taylor joins us as our new Associate Director of UME for the Student Experience. DoQuyen has held a variety of positions at UC Office of the President, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, and San Jose State University. She brings with her valuable experiences in program management, student affairs, online education, communications, and academic support services. DoQuyen received a bachelor’s degree in Biological Science from UC Irvine and a master’s degree in education from the University of Maryland, College Park.
  • Informatics is much more than how to manage and leverage information. It also gets right to the heart of medicine: communication and connection between doctors and patients, amongst clinicians, and between educators and trainees.
