    Katie Raffel is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine as well as the Divisional Resident QI Education Lead in the Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health. She completed internal medicine residency and served in the role of Chief Medical Resident for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety at UCSF prior to joining the faculty. In this role, she designed and implemented the QI/PS curriculum for medical house staff and served as a mentor for residents participating in root cause analyses and projects to improve value and utilization in the healthcare system.

    Dr. Raffel continues to teach UCSF internal medicine residents and medical students about diagnostic error and clinical reasoning, and regularly directs Morbidity and Mortality conferences dedicated to the discussion of diagnostic error. Her quality improvement and patient safety work has taken place within three different healthcare systems: VA, safety-net hospital and tertiary care center. This diversity of experience has given her skills in adapting interventions to different settings, cultures and resources and has provided her with training in both the Model for Improvement and Lean methodology.
