Liz Gatewood, RN, MSN, FNP-C, is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the UCSF School of Nursing, Family Health Care Nursing Department. In addition to teaching she is the project coordinator for the HRSA grant CV-Care and is the lead faculty for the OSHPD special project grant. Since joining the faculty, she has taken on the role of clinical placement coordinator for the family nurse practitioner students. In this role she recognized a need to better prepare students for their clinical rotations and preceptors for teaching in clinic. With the support of the HRSA grant, she has worked to revise the curriculum, incorporate simulated interactions with preceptors across professions, and implement preceptor trainings on clinical teaching and interprofessional learning. She is working to establish new clinical relationships in the California Endowment’s 14 healthy communities, including East Oakland, Richmond and the Central Valley.
Her current faculty practice is at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Family Health Center, the safety net for San Francisco’s underserved populations. She provides full scope family care. Prior to joining the faculty she worked in a range of clinical sites for the underserved, including homeless, mentally ill, uninsured, frail elders, and LGBTQI.
She believes in breaking down barriers to healthcare and feels that getting healthy should not involve a visit to multiple providers. By thinking creatively, compassionately, and broadly we can provide comprehensive care for patients within the primary care setting. She has a special interest in care of those who are homeless, identify as transgender and patients with HIV, mental health illness’, and CHF.
