    Nathaniel Gleason, MD, attended Brown University and then earned his medical degree at UCSF, where he was awarded the UCSF Gold-Headed Cane from his peers for possessing the qualities of true physicianship. He completed his residency training in General Internal Medicine and Primary Care at UCSF and received the Jeffrey Weingarten Award for the Internal Medicine resident who best exemplifies the personal and professional qualities of a UCSF physician.

    Dr. Gleason practices as a primary care physician in the Division of General Internal Medicine UCSF where he teaches medical students and residents. He serves as Medical Director for Patient Access for the UCSF Health System focusing on innovations that improve access to timely, efficient care.

    In 2013, Dr. Gleason received a University of California Center for Health Quality and Innovation (CHQI) Fellowship to support development of an enhanced referral platform (decision support at the point of care) and an eConsult program. eConsults – electronic exchanges that allow primary care providers to obtain guidance from specialists in appropriate cases – offer patients timely access to specialist expertise without the travel, work absence, and cost associated with an office visit. The program significantly improved specialty care access time for UCSF primary care patients.

    In 2014, Dr. Gleason received a UC Office of the President Center for Health Quality and Innovation (CHQI) grant to develop the UCSF eReferral and eConsult platform across the Health Systems at UC Davis, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and UC Los Angeles. In a partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), Dr. Gleason co-leads an initiative funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to implement these innovations at additional Academic Medical Centers nationally.

    Dr. Gleason serves as co-chair of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Disability Issues and in 2010 was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Disability Service.
