Dr. Eng’s goal is to build clinical programs at UCSF and the San Francisco VA Medical Center that apply geriatric principles to adults with complex serious illnesses and improve quality of life and patient outcomes. Emphasis areas are in primary care panel management of complex adults, interprofessional team care, and home-based care.
In the setting of these clinical programs, Dr. Eng leads a team studying the implementation of these new clinical models and teaches pre-clerkship medical students. Dr. Eng is the recipient of a 2014-2015 Education Innovation grant from the Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators. The project will entail first-year medical students serving as telephone health coaches for veterans with multiple chronic illnesses. Students will be embedded with an interdisciplinary team that specializes in assisting veterans who at high risk for hospitalization, their caregivers, and their primary care teams. Students will learn advanced health coaching techniques as well as the value of interdisciplinary teams and communication.
