<P>2UCSF MAGAZINE | Spring 2014 Renowned pediatrician Sam Hawgood, MBBS, took the helm of UCSF in April, when he became interim chancellor. The dean of the School of Medicine and vice chancellor for medical affairs, Hawgood has enjoyed a distinguished 32-year career at the University. The School of Medicine has thrived under his leadership – it is now the top medical school in the nation in National Institutes of Health research funding, and many of its departments also lead the nation in their fields. He assumed the chancellors role from Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH, who joined the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as CEO on May 1.

Leaders are expected to have an enormous strength of will to get things done, but also to be flexible when challenges arise or a change of direction is needed. Getting that balance right is critical. ON THE BALANCING ACT Desmond-Hellmann: Its moving from a wish to be liked to a wish to be respected. What I care about most is that people see me as fair. Its also important to be clear about how you are making decisions and what your values are. Early in my career, I thought there was a certain way leaders had PHOTO: ELISABETH FALL Passing the Torch Two respected physician-scientist leaders sat down with KQED Public Radios Scott Shafer in March to share their views at a pivotal moment: the changing of the guard at UC San Francisco.
