       Overview
      Sei Lee is an Associate Professor in the Division of Geriatrics and Senior Scholar for the San Francisco VA Quality Scholars fellowship. His research focuses on improving the targeting of preventive interventions in older adults to maximize benefits and minimize harms. Dr. Lee attended medical school at the University of Illinois-Rockford, then moved to UCSF where he completed Primary Care Internal Medicine residency and a Geriatric Medicine fellowship. He also completed the VA Quality Scholars fellowship, receiving advanced training in methodologies related to healthcare quality from the San Francisco VA and obtained a Master’s degree in clinical research from UCSF.

      Dr. Lee joined the Division of Geriatrics faculty in 2007. Dr. Lee’s research examines how a patient’s health status can help individualize preventive and treatment decisions, with a special focus on diabetes care for frail nursing home residents. In his clinical work, Dr. Lee supervises and trains residents, fellows and medical students while providing care for internal medicine and palliative care patients at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Lee is an NIH/American Federation of Aging Research Beeson Scholar, which provides funding for research and training. He also receives research support from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
