In her role as Vice Chair, Michelle is responsible for overseeing performance improvement and clinical strategy in all of these areas across the continuum of care. As the Medical Director for Transitions in Care for UCSF Health, Michelle leads efforts to improve outcomes and reduce adverse events across transitions through care delivery innovations and community partnerships. In addition to her improvement work, Michelle has published extensively in the areas of quality, safety, and value.

    Michelle received her BA in Chemistry from Williams College, and her MD from New York University. She completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at UCSF and completed fellowship in Hospital Medicine at UCSF prior to starting as faculty in 2009. She is the recipient of the Medicine Housestaff Teaching Award for excellence in teaching and mentoring and the Medical Student Excellence in Teaching Award.
