Sarah Knish, MD

Sarah KnishI chose UCPC to learn from the best of the best in Internal Medicine! The strength of the overall program in terms of curriculum, patient care, quality improvement and keen attention to resident wellness drew me to UCSF, and having a niche and ‘home’ for dedicated ambulatory learning and camaraderie within the bigger program in UCPC sealed the deal. I was able to grow and learn so much from our UCPC core clinical faculty and my co-residents from working so closely with them over all 3 years of the program. Mentorship and feedback are strengths of UCPC. The block schedule also allows for complete incorporation into the primary care clinic teams, immersion in high-quality electives and abundant opportunities for scholarly work with incredible programmatic support.

Current Job: I currently practice general internal medicine at the VA in Salt Lake City, Utah, where I serve as our VA’s Women’s Health Medical Director for Utah and surrounding areas. I enjoy teaching and precepting Internal Medicine residents from the University of Utah where I have am an Assistant Professor. My clinical care currently focuses on women’s health and health care for LGBTQ+ veterans. I am also fortunate to have dedicated time for quality improvement work and mentoring our two Chief Residents in Quality and Patient Safety.
