    Amanda Peacock is an HS Assistant Clinical Professor in the UCSF School of Nursing and teaches primarily in the Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) program. Her teaching foci are primary care practice, clinical prevention, and population health. She is also a member of the curriculum development work group for interprofessional education (IPE). She is invested in the creation of interprofessional clinical electives that simultaneously provide meaningful learning experiences and meet community needs.

    In partnership with Progress Foundation, she is currently designing and implementing an interprofessional clinical elective with colleagues from nursing, pharmacy, and physical therapy. This elective will provide students the opportunity to apply skills learned throughout the UCSF IPE program while providing intensive outreach to community members with severe mental illness, substance use, and medical comorbidities.

    Clinical practice:
    Her clinical practice is with Interprofessional Primary Care Outreach for Persons with Mental Illness (IPCOM), a practice with a long-standing partnership with Progress Foundation in San Francisco. Working with an interprofessional team including pharmacy, medicine, psychiatry, nursing, and counselors, she provides primary care, episodic care, care coordination, and group education to three Progress Foundation programs.

    Her DNP project focused on culturally informed community partnership, assessment and intervention in rural south India using the Culturally Informed Healthy Aging (CIHA) model. Her DNP project focused specifically on culturally informed lower extremity complication prevention for persons living with diabetes.
