Professor of Surgery
UCSF-Easy Bay Surgery Program
Laurel Imhoff is an enthusiastic general surgery resident committed to evidence based practices. During medical school she was captivated by the operating room and the personal rewards of the surgical “hands on” approach to disease. She began a general surgery residency at the University of California at San Francisco-East Bay Program in 2007 where she is currently training today. Her long-term mission is to make a lasting difference in the lives of her patients by providing excellent and compassionate surgical care and to influence surgical practices with skilful outcomes based clinical research.
Professor Alden Harken has been the Chairman of the Department of Surgery at UCSF-East Bay for 28 years. He also served as a Regent of the American College of Surgeons for nine years; but, he is proudest of the teaching awards that he has received at each of the three universities in which he has served on the faculty.
