The Chair's Notes

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Cathy Garzio, MBA as the new Vice Chair and Director of Finance and Administration in the Department of Medicine, effective July 6, 2015. Cathy is an experienced academic medical center executive who has spent over 20 years at UCSF in a variety of leadership positions.

Cathy graduated with a B.A. in Human Biology from Stanford University and earned her MBA at the University of Chicago. Early in her career, Cathy held planning and operations roles in the hospital and medical group sectors. In 1991, Cathy joined the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine as Practice Manager, Medical Specialties for the Department of Medicine. In 1997, she became Administrative Director for the UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center. In 2002, Cathy became Administrative Director for the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, and most recently added another department — Otolaryngology-Head/Neck Surgery — at the UCSF School of Medicine.

In her role as Vice Chair and Director of Finance and Administration, Cathy will serve as the key business leader for the Department of Medicine. She will partner with the Department Chair to ensure the success of the department, and will be responsible for financial and administrative management, support of clinical care, teaching and research activities, and for compliance with university, government, and external sponsor rules and regulations, and sustaining a productive, effective, and respectful workplace.

We want also to thank Julie White, Phyllis Bussey, and Laura Adams for their dedicated leadership as interim DFAs during these past nine months.

Please join us in welcoming Cathy to her new position in the Department of Medicine at Stanford School of Medicine!
