American College of Physicians Honors UCSF Fresno Associate Dean Peterson

UCSF Fresno Associate Dean Michael W. Peterson, MD, has been awarded Mastership in the American College of Physicians (ACP), the national organization of internists. Election to Mastership recognizes outstanding and extraordinary career accomplishments.


Associate Dean Peterson oversees UCSF Fresno, the largest physician training program in California’s San Joaquin Valley. He was named associate dean in April 2016 and served as interim associate dean since January 2015. He also has served as chief of medicine at UCSF Fresno for the past 14 years. In addition, he is vice chair in the UCSF Department of Medicine.


Peterson was recruited from the University of Iowa College of Medicine in 2002. In Fresno, he oversaw growth of the Internal Medicine program from 45 trainees to its current 68, the development of seven subspecialties with 37 fellows, led fundraising efforts to build the UCSF Fresno Clinical Research Center and secured funding to establish the Larry L. Hillblom Center on Aging at UCSF Fresno. ACP will honor new Masters during the Internal Medicine Meeting next year.
