The 20th Jack Rodnick Colloquium


The 20th Jack Rodnick Colloquium drew a record crowd to UCSF Mission Bay on May 16, 2024. More than 500 faculty, researchers, clinicians, and staff affiliated with the UCSF Family Medicine Educational Alliance attended (in person and virtually) the day-long event.

Each year since 2004, residents, faculty, and staff from Alliance sites have gathered at the Colloquium to share peer-reviewed presentations, hear dynamic speakers, engage in discussion, and exchange innovations and best practices. The Colloquium provides a forum to showcase the most innovative work of department members and medical students on key topics including clinical care, community engagement, education, and research. It enhances collaboration; and fosters mentorship opportunities for medical students interested in family medicine and residents in Alliance family medicine residency training programs.

This year the Colloquium's theme was "Trailblazing Family & Community Medicine: In This Together - Embracing complexity and nuance in dialogue and action." It featured more than 130 in-person and virtual presentations, including posters, lecture discussions, and workshops. Other highlights of the day included the opening session that featured an energizing panel discussion on “Family and Community Medicine Values Under Threat" and the Educational Alliance Teaching Awards presentation.
