    Angel Chen Kuo, CPNP-PC is a Clinical Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Family Health Care Nursing in the School of Nursing. Professor Kuo also serves as the School of Nursing Faculty Lead for the Program in Interprofessional Practice and Education at UCSF, and Co-Chair of the IPE Curriculum and Clinical Committees. She is one of the faculty developers for Teach for UCSF Interprofessional Education Teaching Certificate as well as the Clinical Teaching Certificate. Professor Kuo is a member of the Academy of Medical Educators at UCSF, and received the Overall Excellence in Teaching Award from the School of Nursing in 2016.

    Professor Kuo's educational research (funded through UCSF Medical Center and School of Nursing Clinical Nurse Research Award) was focused on IPE in the clinical setting, studying how interprofessional faculty preceptors adjust teaching and enhance IPE in the clinical setting for advanced practice nursing and medical learners. This project lead to the next phase which is a funded-trial for Interprofessional training for preceptors and learners in the clinical setting at San Francisco General Hospital. As a result, Professor Kuo has been on 3 HRSA training grants leading Preceptor Development Programs across California - with Central Valley Health Network, Redwood Community Health Coalition, and most recently with Lifelong Medical Care for NP residency training. These projects focus on training diverse NP students to train in Federally Qualified Health Centers to prepare them to provide quality care in Health Professions Shortage Areas, while also preparing clinicians as preceptors to grow their clinical teaching skill set.

    In the Vice Chair role, Professor Kuo mentors faculty with their Merit/Promotion process at UCSF, and works closely with clinical faculty on their faculty practice at various clinical sites and development. Prior to serving as the Vice Chair, she was the Specialty Director for the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program.

    Professor Kuo's clinical practice is at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital in the Pediatric Urology Clinic. She enjoys working with the Urology Chief Residents and PNP students in caring for children and families of SFGH, managing conditions such as phimosis, retractile testis, UTI, hydronephrosis, vesicoureteral reflux, and dysfunctional voiding/enuresis.
