Looking Ahead: The DOM in 2017

Well, whatever your political preferences, you have to admit that 2016 was an odd and disconcerting year.

For our department, though, it was an exceptional year, and 2017 promises to be even better. That’s not to say that there aren’t some storm clouds on the horizon, and some difficult choices that we’ll need to make. But we are well positioned to thrive and to lead.

Robert Wachter Named Chair of the Department of Medicine

Dear Colleagues:

I’m honored and humbled to accept Dean King’s offer to become the ninth chair of the UCSF Department of Medicine. Despite spending my entire career at UCSF, the past year as interim chair has given me the opportunity to deepen my knowledge and appreciation of this magnificent department. It’s a great privilege to have the chance to lead it.
