       Overview 
       Overview
      Haile T. Debas, MD is recognized internationally for his contributions to academic medicine and is widely consulted on issues associated with global health. At the University of California, San Francisco, he served as the Founding Executive Director of UCSF Global Health Sciences (2003-2010), Dean (Medicine) (1993-2003), Vice Chancellor (Medical Affairs) for six years, and Chancellor for one year. A gastrointestinal surgeon by training, Dr. Debas is also the Maurice Galante Distinguished Professor of Surgery, Emeritus and chaired the UCSF Department of Surgery from 1987 to 2003. He is also the Founding Director of the University of California-wide Global Health Institute. He was instrumental in the creation of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health and served as the Founding Chair of its Board of Directors (2009-2012).

      A native of Eritrea, he received his M.D. from McGill University and completed his surgical training at the University of British Columbia (UBC), and post-doctoral fellowship at UCLA. He previously held faculty positions at UBC, UCLA, and the University of Washington. Under Dr. Debas’s stewardship, the UCSF School of Medicine became a national model for medical education, an achievement for which he was recognized with the 2004 Abraham Flexner Award for Distinguished Service to Medical Education of the AAMC.

      His prescient grasp of the implications of fundamental changes in science led him to create several interdisciplinary research centers that have been instrumental in reorganizing the scientific community at UCSF. He played a key role in developing UCSF’s new campus at Mission Bay. He has held leadership positions with numerous membership organizations and professional associations including serving as president of the American Surgical Association and Chair of the Council of Deans of the AAMC. He served for two terms as a member of the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy of the National Academy of Sciences, and was a member of the United Nations’ Commission on HIV/AIDS and Governance in Africa. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine, and served as chair of the Membership Committee.

      Dr. Debas is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He currently is a member of the Board of Regents of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a member of the Advisory Committee to the Director of the National Institutes of Health, and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Aga Khan University. In 2012, he was awarded the UCSF Medal for his academic and leadership contributions to the University.
