Welcome to the BCH Oakland Dean’s Office.

The School of Medicine Dean’s Office at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital (BCH) Oakland provides academic leadership to the UCSF faculty, staff, and trainees located in Oakland and works collaboratively with hospital and campus leadership to advance UCSF's mission of Patient Care, Research, Education and Public Service. We serve as a bridge for information between UCSF and BCH Oakland, an independently licensed hospital, and we champion initiatives, policies, systems, and resources for the entire Oakland campus.
