    Heather E. Nye, MD PhD, is a Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Associate Chief of Medicine at San Francisco VA Health Care System (SFVAHCS), and Director of the SFVAHCS Consult/Co-Management Service & Veterans Integrated Perioperative (VIP) Clinic. She received her MD PhD from Yale University and completed a combined residency program in medicine and pediatrics at the Harvard Combined Program. She has practiced as a hospitalist at UCSF and SFVAHCS since 2003.

    Dr. Nye’s clinical role caring for hospitalized patients on orthopedics, neurosurgery, and podiatry deepened her perioperative interest—and led to numerous local quality initiatives, educational programs for medicine & orthopedic residents, and collaboration among specialty services to address gaps in care for older adults undergoing surgery. Dr. Nye created the interdisciplinary VIP Clinic in 2017 for medically complex, frail, and geriatric surgical patients with an eye to whole-patient care in the perioperative period.

    Dr. Nye is recognized as a national expert in hospital and perioperative medicine, giving numerous talks annually, is an active member of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) and the Society of Perioperative Assessment & Quality Improvement (SPAQI). She served as the 2022 Course Director for the SHM Annual Conference and delivered the 2023 SHM Plenary Updates in Hospital Medicine. She is deeply passionate about care of Veterans and as SFVA Associate Chief of Medicine spends considerable time in Medical Center initiatives around operations, patient flow, quality, physician wellness, and strategic growth.
