JMP Announces Establishment of Kevin Mack Medical Education Leadership Support Fund

Oct 2012

The UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program (JMP) is delighted to announce the establishment of theKevin Mack Medical Education Leadership Support Fund.  Kevin A. Mack, MD, MS was a beloved faculty member in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program (JMP) and the UCSF Department of Psychiatry from 2000 – 2011. He was an exceptionally gifted educator and visionary with  expertise in Problem-Based Learning. Kevin created the JMP’s innovative Contextually Integrated Case-Based Curriculum and guided its successful implementation in 2002. We lost Kevin in a tragic accident on July 14, 2011, when he was riding a shuttle en route to San Francisco General Hospital.

In addition to Kevin’s passion for teaching and delight in mentoring students, he had a strong commitment to faculty development, educational technology and learning, and advancing “out-of-the-box” thinking in medical education. It is for this purpose that theKevin Mack Medical Education Leadership Support Fundis being established - to support an outstanding JMP faculty member who will continue Kevin’s work of creating and implementing pioneering medical education initiatives, thus furthering the mission of the JMP. 

The creation of this memorial fund is made possible by leadership gifts from current and past JMP faculty, including Drs. Amin Azzam, W. Thomas Boyce, Kent Olson, Janet Perlman, Ann Stevens and John Swartzberg, with a very generous matching gift pledge from the family of Michael Mack, Kevin’s brother.

We ask you to join us in supporting the JMP and continuing the visionary work of Dr. Kevin Mack.
