She has been on the faculty of the Division of Geriatrics at UCSF since 2015.

    Education and Educational Research:
    Dr. Chen has special interests in finding ways to improve the care to older adults through medical and interprofessional education, quality improvement initiatives, and community education. As a coach in the UCSF School of Medicine, she teaches the fundamentals of clinical care, mentors medical students, and coaches medical students longitudinally during their early medical careers. She has developed clinical skills session on function, fall, and cognition and small group session on multimorbidity and prognosis. Beyond medical school education, she has built an interprofessional learning community in UCSF Center for Geriatric Care where geriatrics fellows, pharmacy residents and students, social work interns, and law students work together to provide comprehensive care for community dwelling older adults. Her passion in education also extends to teaching geriatric concepts to community service providers (e.g. case managers, social workers), direct caregivers, and volunteers to improve the experiences of older adults as people age in place through her work in the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program and the Optimizing Aging Collaborative.
