DOM Fireside Chat with Christine Cassel, MD

In 2017, the Department of Medicine launched a new series — Fireside Chats. These events will consist of DOM Chair Bob Wachter interviewing a prominent UCSF faculty member (or visiting professor) about her/his life in medicine. All chats will be videotaped and shown later on UCTV

In our next Fireside ChatBob Wachter will interview Christine Cassel, our UCSF Presidential Chair for 2018-2019.

Dr. Cassel is an internationally recognized leader in health policy and medical ethics. She has served as CEO of the National Quality Forum and the ABIM, dean at OHSU’s School of Medicine, and, most recently, planning dean for Kaiser Permanente’s new medical school. Seating is limited so try to get there early.

Past Fireside Chats, including interviews with Dean Talmadge King, Program Director Rebecca Berman, and the late Holly Smith, can be seen here.
