Dr. Tricia Santos Cavaiola: Associate Program Director
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Tricia Santos Cavaiola, as Associate Program Director for the UCSD Internal Medicine Residency Program, effective September 15, 2017.
Dr. Santos is Associate Clinical Professor in the UCSD Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism. After earning her undergraduate degree in political science and exercise physiology at UC Santa Barbara, Dr. Santos received her medical degree from the Oregon Health and Science University. She completed her internal medicine residency, chief residency and endocrinology fellowship at UCSD. We were fortunate when Dr. Tricia Santos joined the faculty in July 2013. She is an active clinician-educator who is recognized by her patients, trainees and colleagues for her exceptional patient care, teaching and research. Dr. Santos serves as the Medical Director of the Endocrinology Clinic, at the Medical Offices South in Hillcrest. Her research focuses on clinical trials in type 1 diabetes.
Dr. Santos has a longstanding commitment to medical and graduate medical education at UC San Diego. She serves as the Director of the Endocrine, Reproduction, and Metabolism blocks for the first and second year medical students. In recognition of her outstanding teaching, Dr. Santos was the recipient of the prestigious Kaiser Permanente Excellence in Teaching Award from the medical students in 2011. Since her time as a resident and chief resident, Dr. Santos has been a committed and gifted educator in the residency program, serving as the subspecialty coordinator for Endocrinology and a member of our Core Faculty. She has served on the Internal Medicine Residency Intern Selection Committee since 2011. She has also served on the Internal Medicine Residency Clinical Competency Committee and on the Recruitment Executive Committee since 2014. Dr. Santos was selected by the UCSD Internal Medicine residency program to receive the 2016 Academy of Clinician Scholars Whitehill Prize for Teaching which was given to one junior faculty member in the Department of Medicine.
Please congratulate Dr. Santos in her new role as Associate Program Director.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Scott Mullaney for his service as an Associate Program Director from 2012-2017. Dr. Mullaney has transitioned to a new role as Associate Dean for Continuing Medical Education and Faculty Teaching Development, but will continue to serve as a member of the residency program’s Core Faculty. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Mullaney for his continued commitment to the training program, and in helping us to bridge the continuum from undergraduate to graduate to continuing medical education.
