Sam Hawgood, MBBS, a renowned neonatologist and dean of the UCSF School of Medicine, became the University’s interim chancellor in April 2014. He filled the position left by Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH – UCSF’s first woman and ninth chancellor since its founding in 1864 – who went on to lead the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
A hallmark of UCSF excellence is a spirit of collaboration among all disciplines that fosters an environment of innovation and discovery. It is from this commitment that the online MS in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership graduate program was established.
UCSF is accredited by WASC. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is the regional organization that is responsible for the accreditation of public and private universities and colleges in California, Hawaii and the Pacific Basin.
