    Ari Hoffman is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine (DHM) at UCSF. He joined the faculty in 2014 as a clinician-educator, and works on the inpatient services at Moffitt-Long Hospital and St. Mary's Medical Center, an affiliate clinical site to UCSF Health. He serves as Value Improvement Director for DHM, Medical Director of Hospital Medicine at St. Mary's Medical Center, and Associate Director for Training at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies.

    Ari received his bachelor's degree from Stanford University and his medical degree from UCSF. He spent a year at the NIH with the Clinical Research Training Program working in the Bioethics Department on comparative effectiveness research as a tool for reducing waste in healthcare spending before returning to San Francisco to finish medical school. He also interned at the Center for Medical Technology Policy in Baltimore, focused on stakeholder engagement in formal value assessment. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at UCSF. Before joining the faculty, he spent a year as adjunct clinical faculty at the Mbarara University of Science and Technology in Mbarara, Uganda, through the Global Health Service Partnership, a public-private venture between Seed Global Health and the Peace Corps.

    Ari's professional passions include the pursuit of the highest value healthcare for everyone, clinical education, and implementation of healthcare policy.
