    UCSF 2011 - A Focus on Operational Excellence

    I want to provide you with a quick update on the activities of the administrative and operating efficiencies work group. As I said in my February 17 message (http://today.ucsf.edu/stories/ucsf-2011-a-focus-on-operational-excellence/) to the campus, I formed this group because I want to focus on the size and budget of UCSF and want to be sure that every dollar we spend is in service of our mission—patients and health, discovery and education.
