The UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health is committed to promoting women’s leadership within UCSF and more broadly. Excellence and progress in all our mission areas benefits from and requires a diversity of expertise, perspectives and lived experiences in all facets of our work especially where leadership decisions are made. In order to remain at the forefront of clinical care, education, research, and community outreach, diverse talent must be engaged in our most important endeavors. Women have made up nearly half of all U.S. graduating physicians since 2002, which suggests that the pipeline of women with the potential and experience to lead is much larger than UCSF’s current representation of women in leadership. We must seize the opportunity to build new pathways for women to lead to be successful in advancing health in San Francisco and worldwide.
Women in Leadership
The US Department of Health and Human Services designates Centers of Excellence across the country to establish new models of health care for women that bring together research, training, clinical care, public health, community outreach and the promotion of women in all fields of healthcare, with the goal to improve the health of a diverse population of women across the lifespan. Our mission to promote women to leadership roles supports the core purpose of our designation as a National Center of Excellence. We salute these women for their contributions as leaders at UCSF.
