All UCSF Family and Community Medicine Residents participate in the longitudinal Advocacy, Community Engagement, Quality Improvement and Leadership Academy (ACQILA). The aim of the ACQILA curriculum is to increase Family Medicine residents’ knowledge, skills and overall interests in working with vulnerable populations. A critical aspect of our program is the chance to meet with many inspiring individuals from both SFGH and the broader community. This year’s R2s joined with School of Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner students in their second year ACQILA block.
Faculty and staff from the Department are currently providing leadership and expertise in the second year Medical School curriculum (LGBT Life Cycle) half day each spring. E. Michael Reyes, MD, MPH from the AETC programs is the faculty lead for the morning’s content. Maddie Deutsch, MD, MPH is the lead lecturer. In the 2015 session, Center of Excellence for Transgender Health staff member, Danielle Castro MA, served as a panelist.
