Welcome Clark Rosen, MD

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Clark Rosen will be joining the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at UCSF on February 5, 2018.

Clark will be a Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Chief of the Division of Laryngology and will manage this already outstanding and productive unit to even greater prominence.

Clark is originally from Los Gatos, California and is a proud graduate of Cal (Go Bears!). He attended Rush University for his MD degree, accomplished his residency in OHNS at OHSU, and was selected for a fellowship in Laryngology and Upper Airway Physiology at the University of Tennessee in Memphis under the tutelage of Gayle Woodson. Clark inaugurated modern laryngology at the University of Pittsburgh beginning in 1995. He rose through the academic ranks from Assistant Professor to become a Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology in 2009. Clark also has appointments as a Professor in the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine and in the University of Pittsburgh School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Department of Communication Science and Disorders. Clark originated the outstanding Fellowship in Laryngology and Care of the Professional Voice at the University of Pittsburgh in 2002.

Clark as had amazing productivity as a clinician scientist. He has authored over 160 peer reviewed publications, 30 book chapters, and is known the world over for being the section editor for Laryngology for Bailey’s Head and Neck Surgery-Otolaryngology which is one of two main textbooks in our field. Clark also authored (with Blake Simpson) a key operative atlas, Operative Techniques in Laryngology which has international reach.

Clark has been a Co-Investigator on numerous NIH grants as well as grants from the Triological Society, the VA, and private industry.

As you can imagine, Clark has been a sought after speaker internationally and has had major service to multiple publications and professional societies. He is a founding member of the Fall Voice Conference, is the Vice Chair of the Annual Meeting Program Committee for the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAOHNS), and is the Treasurer of the American Laryngological Association (ALA) which puts him in line to be the president of the ALA in a few years.

Clark has great vision and has been a major innovator in our field, so he will drive our Laryngology Division to new accomplishments and contributions. Please join me in welcoming him to UCSF.

Clark, welcome to the UCSF team!
