Dr. Katherine M. Hyland is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, and a member of the Institute for Human Genetics at the UCSF School of Medicine. Her primary roles are in health professions education and faculty development.
Dr. Hyland received her B.S. in Biochemistry from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1986. After working as a Cytogenetic Technologist for Roche Biomedical Laboratories and a Cytogenetic Research Technician at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, she received an M.S. in Cell Biology and Molecular Cytogenetics with Dr. Leonard Sciorra at Rutgers University in 1992. Dr. Hyland continued her graduate studies in the Human and Molecular Genetics Program at Johns Hopkins University, where she completed her thesis (“Identification and characterization of Ctf19p: A molecular link between kinetochores and spindle pole body in S. cerevisiae.”) under Dr. Phil Hieter and was award a PhD in 1998. After spending a year as a post doctoral scholar in Dr. Hieter’s lab at the University of British Columbia, Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics, she pursued postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Gerard Evan at the Universtiy of California, San Francisco Comprehensive Cancer Center, where she analyzed cMyc induced carcinogenesis in a transgenic mouse model. In 2002, Dr. Hyland was appointed as Assisstant Professor in the UCSF Department of BIochemisty and Biophysics, and began her career in medical education.
At UCSF, Dr. Hyland directs a multidisciplinary medical school course focusing on the molecular basis, epidemiology and clinical management of cancer, and directs the longitudinal medical genetics theme in the school of medicine. She teaches topics in biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics, where she emphasizes clinical applications of foundational sciences and innovative educational modalities. In 2006, Dr. Hyland completed the Harvard Macy Institute’s Program for Educators in the Healthcare Professions. She has been an active member in the Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators since 2008, and served as chair of Faculty Development from 2010-2013, during which time she produced an online blended training module for the Teaching Observation Program (TOP). Dr. Hyland leads Faculty Development workshops on small group facilitation and peer observation and feedback both at UCSF and as well as nationally and internationally. From 2013-2015 she served as Chair of the Essential Core Course Committee, which oversees the pre-clerkship medical curriculum. She is actively involved in designing components of the new UCSF Bridges medical curriculum (to launch in fall 2016), and currently serves as Associate Director of the Core Inquiry Curriculum.
At the national level, Dr. Hyland served as the inaugural Chair of the Genetics Course Directors group in the Association of Professors of Human and Medical Genetics (APHMG) and led an effort to develop national competencies in medical genetics. She is also an active a member of the Association of Biochemistry Educators (ABE), the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE), the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), and the Western Group on Educational Affairs (WGEA). Her current educational interests include encouraging students to engage in curiosity and the process of discovery, and incorporating an integrated approach to genomic medicine in the training of future physicians.
