Rageshree Ramachandran, MD, PhD

Research and Clinical Interests

My clinical work is in diagnostic surgical pathology with an emphasis on liver and gastrointestinal disease. I review in-house biopsy and surgical cases and am part of the Liver/GI consultation service. I am the San Francisco site pathologist for the Hepatitis B Research Network, a consortium of hospitals with expertise in caring for those with chronic hepatitis B virus infection, approximately 0.3-0.5% of US residents. My education research currently focuses on the impact of the Academy of Medical Educators endowed chair program on former holders of these chair positions.
