Joyce Trompeta, RN, PhD, PNP is an Assistant Adjunct Professor with the UCSF Department of Surgery in the School of Medicine. Dr. Trompeta completed her masters and doctoral degrees at UCSF. She oversaw UCSF's pediatric kidney transplant program for 10 years and has expertise in adolescent growth and development.

As UCSF's International Pacific Rim's Surgical and Medical Liaison, Dr. Trompeta has developed outreach programs to four Hawaiian islands promoting solid organ transplantation and organ donor awareness. She is currently developing outreach clinics for UCSF's Interstitial Lung Disease and Lung Transplantation program, and UCSF's Fetal Treatment program.

Dr. Trompeta's program of research examines factors related to organ donation and health disparities, including organ donation practices, medical exclusion related to race and ethnicity, and reasons why donors are unwilling to donate. Dr. Trompeta developed the Organ Donation & Transplantation Knowledge Survey (ODTK) which is psychometrically valid for evaluating knowledge about organ donation and transplantation. Results of her instrument are published in Transplantation Proceedings.
