History & Meet the Chiefs

Welcome to the UCSF Division of Infectious Diseases. We are dedicated to the four missions of UCSF: (1) delivering outstanding patient care, (2) training the next generation of leaders in Infectious Diseases, (3) carrying out cutting-edge basic, translational, clinical, educational, and health policy research. At the core of our division is our fellowship program, where fellows receive training and research experience across all 3 sites. UCSF Health, a quaternary care hospital serving patients throughout Northern California; Zuckerberg-San Francisco General Hospital, a pre-eminent county hospital and the site of the first HIV Clinic; and the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center, serving veterans from across Northern California. Together, all three sites are unified with a central mission to foster an environment of outstanding clinical training, discovery, innovation, and excellence for our fellows.

As a cohesive group, the ID division chiefs from all three sites, welcomes you to learn about our program.
