Message from the Dean

“One of the many functions of the Dean's Office at ZSFG is to manage the partnership between the San Francisco Department of Public Health, the City and County of San Francisco and UCSF. Many people do not realize there are over 2,000 UCSF employees who work at ZSFG and that all the physicians at ZSFG are UCSF faculty.

At UCSF, we have a triple mission of providing clinical care, teaching and research. At ZSFG, we provide a third of all UCSF training at the School of Medicine for the medical students, residents and fellows. The best kept secret of all is that we have a robust research effort with over 200 principal investigators, employing over 800 people and bringing in between $150-200 million per year in research grants. In fact, many of the top NIH Research awardees in the School of Medicine do both their clinical work and research at ZSFG.”
