Dear Colleagues:

On August 10, I informed the campus community that, after careful review and based on an extensive search, Dr. Sam Hawgood had agreed to serve as dean of the School of Medicine and vice chancellor—medical affairs, subject to Regents' approval.

The Regents have now approved the appointment. Please see UCSF Today for more information and join me in celebrating Dean Hawgood's appointment. I am delighted to have Sam as a member of the leadership team and know that the school and the campus will continue to benefit from his exceptional leadership, intelligence and commitment.

Sincerely,

Susan Desmond-Hellmann, M.D., M.P.H.
Chancellor
