      Dr. Rena Fox is a Professor of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She has been on the faculty in the Division of General Internal Medicine for 16 years. Dr. Fox was an undergraduate at Stanford, got her MD at UC San Diego and did her internal medicine residency at University of Washington. She was a general medicine fellow at UCSF with an interest in hepatitis C during which time she was trained by UCSF hepatologists in viral hepatitis and since then, Dr. Fox has been the sole faculty member at UCSF who is both an expert in hepatitis C and is a general internist, and is one of the few people in the country in this unique position. Dr. Fox is internationally recognized as an educator – she lectures around the country and she has been working with the Veterans Administration for a decade on hepatitis C educational tools, national policies and as the Medical Editor of the VA Viral Hepatitis Website. As part of the DHHS Hepatitis Action Plan, and the CDC aim to educate the country’s physicians in hepatitis C, she is on a national advisory board with the University of Washington, creating an online hepatitis C curriculum for HCV education. She is a co-author and panel member of the clinical practice guidelines for the VA regarding the use of hepatitis C drugs. She served as a clinical expert for the California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF) meetings on hepatitis C drugs in 2014. As a researcher, she studies hepatitis C epidemiology and clinical outcomes, including long term outcomes of hepatocellular carcinoma and cirrhosis in large multicenter studies. Dr. Fox trains UCSF medical students and Internal Medicine residents. She sees patients in two settings – she has a large panel of primary care patients at the UCSF General Medicine practice, and she treats hepatitis C patients at the Liver Clinic at UCSF.
