Andrew Gross, MD

Professor

I am the Rheumatology Clinic Chief at UCSF. I am responsible for all aspects of rheumatology clinical and teaching activities. I am committed to comprehensively aligning the rheumatology clinical program for ongoing success in all three of the traditional domains of academic medicine – clinical care, research and education.

I am co-director of the UCSF Scleroderma Center. I also work closely with the physicians in the UCSF Interstitial Lung Disease Program. My efforts are focused on providing multi-disciplinary, comprehensive care to patients with these complex conditions through a team based approach.

I am committed to:

1. Delivery of World Class Patient Care. UCSF Rheumatology continues to be recognized by "US News & World Report" as one of the 10 best hospitals in rheumatology.

2. Delivering outstanding training and education programs in rheumatic disease for rheumatology fellows, internal medicine residents and medical students. I work closely with the Rheumatology Fellowship Program Director to coordinate the one of the premier fellowships in rheumatology training. The program includes bedside teaching, post-clinic conferences, and a comprehensive didactic teaching program.

3. Fostering research in rheumatic disease. I see academic medical centers as the champions of research efforts that help us to better understand the causes of autoimmune disease. I focus my research efforts on collaborating with basic scientists on "translational" research efforts that help us understand the causes of disease in people. In addition, I continue to work with my rheumatology colleagues to develop new strategies that improve the delivery of care to rheumatology patients.
