Carrie Chen was my chief resident when I started as a pediatric resident at UCSF in 1998. We both had been UCSF medical students as well. I don’t know when the term “UCSF Lifer” officially kicks in, but I would say we both fit that definition. While I could talk to Carrie about her important and eye-opening research in workplace-based assessments (see her keynote for the AME Celebration of New Members), I was really curious to know, “Is there life after UCSF?”
Our faculty shape and teach the next generation of compassionate physicians at UCSF.
