    Kevin H. Souza is the Associate Dean for Medical Education at the University of California, San Francisco. In addition, he serves as Chair of IT Governance for UC San Francisco.

    In his role as Associate Dean, he has administrative responsibility for the medical education programs including oversight of educational technology and simulation activities in the school. As Chair of IT Governance, he oversees a nine-committee governance structure with over 250 faculty and staff participating in shared decision making for UCSF IT.

    His professional interests include cultivating educational and change leadership, systems improvement, organizational development, strategic visioning, use of innovative and effective technologies in teaching and learning, including simulation. His professional expertise has culminated in his ability to understand and build culturally complex and cohesive organizational structures, as demonstrated through the medical education enterprise at UCSF and the revitalization of UCSF’s IT Governance structure, which drives strategic initiatives for the university.

    At UCSF he led change management for the new UCSF School of Medicine Bridges curriculum, which trains physicians who are well prepared to improve the health care system, and therefore the health of our communities. Nationally, he has served as chair of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Western Group on Educational Affairs (WGEA) and as chair of the AAMC Group on Information Resources (GIR) Communications Subcommittee. He has served on the AAMC GEA and GIR steering committees. In these roles he co-designed the peer-review process for AAMC’s MedEdPortal; helped transform the AAMC LEAD Certificate into a national cohort-based leadership development program for educators; and has helped the Group on Educational Affairs understand and address the complexity of integration across medical student, resident and physician education.

    He regularly consults and teaches on organizational support models for medical education and educational technology; change leadership; and leadership development.
