    Faye Chan joined the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine in September 2012. After graduating from the University of Chicago with a B.A. in Biology, she briefly worked in the field of immunology research and went on to earn her MD and MPH from Boston University. She completed internal medicine residency at Columbia University Medical Center. Her main interests include quality improvement in health care delivery, global public health, and health and human rights. During her medical training, she worked in a regional hospital in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa and conducted research with the Dutch NGO TPO/Healthnet investigating the effect of alcoholism on domestic violence and HIV transmission amongst the internally displaced people of northeastern Uganda. Most recently, she has focused her efforts on using a national-scale computer simulation model to investigate the the influence of urbanization on cardiovascular disease events in China.
