I have been a hospitalist at Kaiser East Bay since February 2016, and attend at Kaiser Oakland and Kaiser Richmond hospitals. For the six years prior to that, I had a very busy primary care practice at Kaiser Oakland.
I direct the UCSF-Kaiser Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (KLIC) at Kaiser East Bay, a year-long integrated clerkship that encompasses the core clinical training for third year medical students.
In addition, I teach and direct a quality improvement course for KLIC students called Policy, Leadership and Systems Engineering (PuLSE). This course is a longitudinal, experiential and skills-based quality improvement curriculum that revolves around a year-long quality improvement project.
Finally, I co-direct a quality improvement curriculum for the Kaiser Oakland Internal Medicine Residency program, which is also skills and project-based and incorporates principles from LEAN improvement methodology.
