      Michelle Mourad is an Associate Professor in the Division of Hospital Medicine at University of California San Francisco. She divides her time between clinical, quality improvement and administrative roles.

      Clinically, Michelle attends on both on the Medicine Teaching Service and on the Hospitalist Procedure Service, a hospitalist-based rotation for interns to gain mastery of procedure skills and knowledge. As the Director of Quality and Safety for Division, Michelle oversees Divisional QI efforts in discharge safety, cost-conscious care, patient satisfaction, sepsis, mortality and hospital acquired complications. Her particular area of interest is on improving transitions in care around the time of discharge.

She serves as the co-chair of the new Medical Records Committee and leads medical center efforts in Clinical Documentation Improvement.

      Michelle received her BA in Chemistry from Williams College, and her MD from New York University. She completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at UCSF and completed fellowship in Hospital Medicine at UCSF prior to starting as faculty in 2009.
