2021 Krevans Award – Jacquelyn Callander, MD

Jacquelyn Callander, MD, a PGY 1 resident in the UCSF Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery received the esteemed 2021 Krevans Award from the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) presented at the annual ZSFG Medical Staff Meeting in June, 2021.

The Krevans Award recognizes “excellence in patient care, as exemplified by clinical competence, professional conduct, concern for patients and interaction with all levels of staff, including peers”. The award is presented annually to one intern in each specialty at ZSFG.

The award was established in 1979 by Gladstone Institutes, a privately funded, UCSF-affiliated research institute formerly on the ZSFG campus and is named for former UCSF Chancellor Julius R. Krevans.

Throughout her internship, Dr. Callander demonstrated an aptitude for patient care that has spanned both clinical and personal needs. Her strengths include clear communication amongst clinical teams and quick integration into new surgical teams. Since first working as a pre-medical student in the Department of Ophthalmology at ZSFG, she has shown commitment to the values shared by our ZSFG community of patients and staff. She is caring, competent, and an indispensable member of the Otolaryngology team.

“The strength of ZSFG comes down to the people—the patients, staff, and providers—whose experiences and passion make this a truly special place, “says Dr. Callander. “I am honored to work and learn from this community and believe it is an invaluable experience afforded to UCSF trainees.”
