Dr. Dzeng is an Assistant Professor at UCSF in the Division of Hospital Medicine and Social and Behavioral Sciences, Sociology program. She also directs the ethics curriculum for UCSF medical students. She completed her PhD in Medical Sociology at the University of Cambridge at King’s College as a Gates Cambridge Scholar and was a General Internal Medicine Post-Doctoral Clinical Research Fellow and Palliative Care Research Fellow at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She wrote her dissertation on the influence of institutional cultures and policies on physicians’ ethical beliefs and how that impacts the way they communicate in end of life decision-making conversations. Her current research is focused on understanding how institutions might foster cultures that encourage palliative care and resist the tide of overly aggressive care at the end of life and the interaction between these ethical conflicts and physician moral distress, burnout, and declines in empathy.
