Department of Surgery Faculty

The UCSF Department of Surgery is comprised of approximately 86 full-time clinical faculty and 18 full-time research faculty, many preeminent, nationally and internationally, with many serving as officers of major surgical societies, specialty boards and NIH study sections.  Faculty development is a high priority for the Department.  Faculty are recruited based on clinical strengths, research potential, teaching interest and aptitude. Basic and clinical research is fundamental to our mission. NIH funding of departmental research has increased  for most of the past decade garnering the second highest level of NIH funding among all departments of surgery nationwide. Funding from extramural sources (federal, industry, foundations, and gifts) has grown steadily.
