      Dr. McNamara is associate clinical professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Pediatrics, codirector of the UCSF School of Medicine’s Foundations of Patient Care and Preceptorships, and director of Preceptor Outreach for the UCSF School of Medicine Office of Medical Education. Dr. McNamara has extensive personal background as a general pediatrician and primary care provider, both in private and academic practice settings. Her former tenure as the associate director for the UCSF Residency Training Program and as chief of pediatrics at the UCSF/Mount Zion Pediatric Group provided insight into the clinical and administrative needs of training primary care practitioners. Over the past five years, her academic focus has been concentrated on undergraduate and graduate medical education, and her clinical work is oriented toward care of the under-served. She serves on the Steering Committee for PRIME-US (Program In Medical Education Urban Under-Served), a State of California initiative to increase the workforce of physicians dedicated to care of vulnerable populations. She also serves as a mentor for the Pediatric Leadership for the Under-Served (PLUS) program, and as continuity clinic preceptor for pediatric residents and medical students in the Children’s Health Center at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH). In these roles, she works with other community physicians and organizations to support the educational needs of trainees while addressing the service needs of the community.
