The rheumatology division is very active in education within the UCSF School of Medicine and the Department of Medicine.
Division faculty at all three hospital sites actively engage in medical school teaching in formal School of Medicine (SOM) classes and clerkships and in informal teaching of students in rheumatology clinics. Division faculty have a number of leadership roles in SOM education. Andy Gross organizes the small group discussion sessions and Mary Nakamura organizes rheumatology lectures for the second year Infection, Inflammation and Immunity (I3) course. David Daikh serves on the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators Educational Scholarship Committee. He was also a member of the SOM Advanced Studies Committee that reviewed the 4th year curriculum (2009-2010) and served on the SOM Clinical Studies Steering Committee (2010-2011).
Sarah Goglin, MD is the director of Medicine 140.24, the fourth-year elective in rheumatology, which gives students an exciting introduction to clinical rheumatology at UCSF Health, ZSFG, and the SFVAMC. She also directs the Clinical Immersive Experiences (CIEX) in F2 and, as part of that role, is in charge of rheumatology participation in IDS 130.05, an integrative musculoskeletal elective that gives students exposure to patients with musculoskeletal pathology from the viewpoints of rheumatologists, orthopedists, and physiatrists, as well as physical and occupational therapists.
