The annual Family & Community Medicine Colloquium on Innovations in Family Medicine – dedicated in 2008 to Jonathan Rodnick, MD – celebrates the best of the work being done in family medicine at UCSF. Each year, the colloquium:

  • Provides a forum to showcase the most innovative work of department members and medical students in many areas, some of which include clinical care, community engagement, education, and research;
  • Enhances collaboration within the department; and
  • Fosters mentorship opportunities for medical students interested in family medicine and residents in our family medicine residency training programs.

Past Programs


Former FCM Chair Jack Rodnick dedicated his life to improving medical education and serving UCSF faculty members and students and the greater San Francisco Bay Area community. We can think of no better way to honor his memory and years of dedicated service than to have his name and life’s work memorialized by the colloquium and by creating a grants program to assist individuals to take their initial steps as scholars in family medicine. Please consider helping us to honor Jack’s legacy by contributing to this important educational event.
