Peter Chin-Hong

Professor

Peter Chin-Hong is Associate Dean for Regional Campuses. He is a medical educator who specializes in treating infectious diseases, particularly infections that develop in patients who have suppressed immune systems, such as solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients and HIV+ organ transplant recipients. He directs the immunocompromised host infectious diseases program at UCSF. His research focuses on donor derived infections in transplant recipients and molecular diagnostics of infectious diseases in patients with suppressed immune systems.

He earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Brown University, before completing an internal medicine residency and infectious diseases fellowship at UCSF, where he is Professor of Medicine and Director of the Yearlong Inquiry Program in the School of Medicine. He was the inaugural holder of the Academy of Medical Educators Endowed Chair for Innovation in Teaching.

He is a member of the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators and is course director of the Pathogen and Host Defense course in the School of Medicine. He was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha by the UCSF medical students. He is honored to have been the commencement speaker for the UCSF School of Medicine class of 2015, and to give the 2021 Last Lecture by UCSF students. He has received several teaching awards including the UCSF Henry J. Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2009, Essential Core teaching awards from the classes of 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2014, and a Bridges Curriculum Foundations teaching award for the class of 2020. He is interested in curriculum development, workforce development and pipeline programs, mentoring across differences, small group learning and interprofessional education.
