    Marissa A. Boeck, M.D., M.P.H. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery, and serves as an acute care surgeon at Parnassus and as an acute care and trauma surgeon and surgical critical care intensivist at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG). She is a Co-Director of the Center for Health Equity in Surgery and Anesthesia (CHESA), as well as the Director of General Surgery/Trauma within the Center and is a member of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Emergency and Trauma Care. She has a B.A. in Philosophy from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, and received her M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College in 2011. Dr. Boeck completed her general surgical residency training at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia in 2018, during which time she obtained a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the first of two research years away from clinical duties. The second was spent in Santa Cruz, Bolivia working on hospital-based trauma registry implementation, and developing the city's trauma and emergency response system. Dr. Boeck's professional passions include global public health, especially as it relates to injury prevention (road traffic, gun violence), vulnerable populations, emergency response, and trauma and surgical system strengthening in low-resource settings. She also champions diversity in the surgical workforce, and the power of social media in medicine. Her research spans both domestic in the United States and abroad across multiple countries including Bolivia, Kenya, Cameroon, Nepal, Uganda, and Tanzania.

    Role: Co-Principal Investigator
    Role Description: This project aims to describe the epidemiology of surgical disease that requires laparotomy at Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) in Dar es Saalam, Tanzania. It will also describe the in-hospital and 30-day post-discharge outcomes, as well as financial implications, of laparotomies at MNH, laying the foundation for a future surgical care quality improvement program.
