A new, limited-series podcast from the UCSF Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) shares the specific clinical, teaching, advocacy, and systems skills today’s residents and fellows need to be leaders in the clinical learning environment.   

The podcast series is hosted by Erick Hung, MD, UCSF Professor of Psychiatry, UCSF School of Medicine Associate Dean for Students, and the former Director of Curricular Affairs for GME for the UCSF School of Medicine.

Our goal in producing this series is for residents, fellows, faculty, staff, and other learners to take away best practices that promote leadership in the clinical learning environment." 

During each episode, Dr. Hung, together with a UCSF faculty member and UCSF trainee, explore topics influencing the future of graduate medical education. Over the course of 13 episodes, Dr. Hung and guests discuss topics including: creating a positive learning environment, promoting well-being in medicine, anti-racism, eliminating waste and promoting sustainable health care practices, fostering inclusive leadership, creating a culture of psychological safety in interprofessional teams, and more.
