    Results of 2018 Staff Engagement Survey

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    We are writing to share a brief summary of results of the 2018 UCSF Staff Engagement Survey and next steps. Thank you to the nearly 70 percent of staff who voiced your opinions in this important survey, which helps us understand our progress toward our shared goal of making UCSF a great place to work.

    Staff engagement appears to have plateaued with a slight increase in overall engagement. Our grand mean score, on a five-point scale, increased .01 from 3.93 in 2017 to 3.94 in 2018. While this is an improvement, we remain far from our goal to be among the best organizations in the country.

    Remembering Holly Smith

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    It is with sadness that we share the news that Lloyd “Holly” Smith, Jr., MD, professor and chairman emeritus of the UCSF Department of Medicine, passed away yesterday at home at the age of 94. Holly was a luminary in the fields of medical education and research, and his absence will be felt not only at UCSF but well beyond.

    When Holly joined UCSF in 1964 as the chairman of the Department of Medicine, there were only fifty full-time members (it now numbers approximately 750). He led the department through a period of exceptional and unprecedented growth, recruiting and mentoring faculty in record numbers, many of whom went on to be outstanding leaders in their fields.

    Dear Colleagues,

    I’m pleased to announce two new options for adult and pediatric care in the East Bay, for you and other UCSF Health patients. This is especially important at a time when more people are looking for convenient, outpatient locations to receive their health care.
