    Dean, School of Nursing

    Dear Colleagues:

    David Vlahov, PhD, RN, has informed me of his intent to step down as Dean of the School of Nursing to return to the faculty and focus on his research and passion for mentoring. Dean Vlahov came to UCSF in April 2011 from the New York Academy of Medicine, and his accomplishments over the past five years have had a significant effect on UCSF and the greater community.

    During his tenure, David has fostered the School’s tradition of excellence and strong rankings. The School ranked #1 in 2015 among all schools of nursing in funding from the National Institutes of Health and, earlier this year, secured the #3 position on the 2017 US News & World Report Best Graduate Schools Rankings for schools of nursing.

    Healing in Challenging Times

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    Our nation is facing very challenging times. Yet again, we struggle to come to terms with video and news of the shooting deaths of two more black men at the hands of police. And then we are confronted with the shocking images of one or more snipers taking aim at police officers resulting in deaths and injury, including peaceful protestors. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the victims as well as support to the communities at-large.

    As the news of the horrific tragedy in Orlando continues to filter in over the hours and days ahead, I know that our care and compassion are with the victims, their family and friends, members of the LGBT community, and the many other people in Orlando and across our nation whose lives have been forever changed by this unspeakable act of violence.
