The UCSF School of Medicine named Michael W. Peterson, MD, associate dean at UCSF Fresno. Dr. Peterson will oversee the continued development of UCSF Fresno’s clinical and academic programs. He has served as interim associate dean since January 2015. Dr. Peterson has been chief of medicine at UCSF Fresno for the past 14 years, and he serves as vice chair in the Department of Medicine at UCSF. His clinical and research focus is in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.

“I have every confidence that Dr. Peterson will lead UCSF Fresno with vision, vigor and commitment,” said Talmadge E. King, Jr., MD, dean, UCSF School of Medicine and vice chancellor for medical affairs. “He will continue to be a trusted leader within the Department of Medicine and the school and will continue to extend UCSF’s mission in the San Joaquin Valley.”


Dr. Peterson was recruited from the University of Iowa College of Medicine in 2002.  During his tenure in Fresno, he oversaw growth of the Medicine Residency Program from 45 trainees to its current 68 trainees, the development of seven subspecialties with 37 fellows and led  fundraising efforts to build the UCSF Fresno Clinical Research Center.
