    Dr. Dandu is a Professor of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree in Comparative Literature and Biomedical Sciences and then a medical degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She completed her residency training in the Categorical Medicine Program at UCSF in 2003. Afterwards, Dr. Dandu attended the University of California, Berkeley and received a Masters in Public Health with a focus on international health and health and human rights.

    Prior to returning to UCSF, Dr. Dandu spent two years back at the University of Michigan with the Department of Medicine in the hospitalist group providing inpatient clinical care to patients and teaching residents and medical students. At UCSF, Dr. Dandu spends part of her time on the inpatient clinical services supervising and teaching medical students and residents.

    Her main nonclinical areas of focus are in global health education, curriculum development, and mentorship especially in the areas of ethics and cultural humility. She is an active member of the Academy of Medical Educators. She has served in several educational leadership roles and previously directed multiple programs at UCSF including:
    1) The Master of Science in Global Health, a one-year program designed for students or practitioners in a health science profession or related field who wish to achieve mastery and leadership skills in the field of global health.
    2) The Global Health Pathway/Area of Distinction for the Internal Medicine Residency. In this capacity she coordinated international experiences of residents, assisted with their scholarly projects, and provides curriculum for those committed to careers in global health.
    3) Co-director of the Global Health Core for the Division of Hospital Medicine and a senior curriculum adviser for the HEAL Fellowship.

    She is now Director of the University of California Global Health Institute- a UC-wide initiative that stimulates, nurtures, and promotes global health research, education, and collaboration to advance the University’s global health agenda. She has also joined the Global Action in Nursing (GAIN) Initiative where she supports learning and quality improvement initiatives. In addition she continues to collaborate with colleagues and community-based partners on cultural humility training and initiatives focused on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
