    Dr. Margaretten received her undergraduate degree from Bucknell University (1999), her MD from the University of California, San Francisco (2003), and her Masters in Advanced Studies of Clinical Research from the University of California, San Francisco (2009). She completed medical residency and a rheumatology fellowship at UCSF. She joined the faculty in the Division of Rheumatology in 2009. Her clinical activities include seeing patients both at San Francisco General Hospital and the San Francisco VA Hospital. In 2008, she was awarded the Arthritis Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellowship Award. In 2010 she received the ACR Research & Education Foundation and Arthritis Foundation Career Development Bridge Funding Award, and in 2011, the UCSF and National Institute of Health KL2 Career Development Award. Her research focused on examining the predictors of depression among patients with rheumatoid arthritis, particularly evaluating disparities and the role of systemic inflammation in depression among patients with arthritis. In 2015, she was awarded a grant to develop a health information technology intervention for the SFGH rheumatology clinic to improve chronic care management and patient safety. Dr. Margaretten also has a significant role in medical education and has been selected as a Coach for the new UCSF SOM Bridges Curriculum.
