UCSF Psychiatry Update from Lowell Tong

Friday, December 14, 2012


Lowell Tong, MDTongDear colleagues and friends,

Most of you have already heard the exciting news of the appointment of our new UCSF Psychiatry Department Chair, Matthew State, MD, PhD, who begins March 2013. I am so delighted with the announcement; Matt and I have begun regular discussions for a smooth transition. Many thanks to all who interviewed or met with him during the search process; and special thanks to the search committee. Please see the announcement on the UCSF School of Medicine website. 

State, Matthew I am also pleased to report that the NIH FY2012 funding data has been released. UCSF just announced that UCSF School of Medicine is now #1 in awards to schools of medicine, and UCSF Psychiatry is now #9 in awards to departments of psychiatry. Huge congratulations to all who helped accomplish this!

As we come to the end of the year I would like to thank everyone in the department for their extraordinary efforts in clinical care, training the next generations of health professionals, and research across the broad scope encompassed by our department. Beyond those in the three traditional academic health professional roles are our sometimes unsung heroes and heroines: those who support the administrative, operational and infrastructure functions of the department, and those who give and support our department through their extraordinary gifts of resources, time and ideas. Thank you all.

Here are some photos from the Department Holiday Breakfast this past week:

Demian Rose, MD, PhDRosePsychiatry Clerkship. Clerkship Director Demian Rose, MD, PhD, reports that the Psychiatry core clerkship, which trains about 160 medical students every year, was recently recognized by the School of Medicine’s Comprehensive Clerkship Report for having consistently performed above the average of the other clerkships for the two rating items “adequacy of direct observation of your clinical skills” and “adequacy of feedback on your performance.”  Over the past five years, students consistently rate our clinician teachers higher than others in both the amount and effectiveness of observation and feedback they receive. Thanks to all of our resident, fellow and faculty teachers at Fresno, Kaiser Oakland and San Francisco, Parnassus, SFGH and SFVA for your hard work, thoughtfulness and dedication to teaching our students.
