Odi Ehie, MD

Associate Clinical Professor

I am a pediatric anesthesiologist whose interests include Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Global Health, as well as Education. As a UCSF Teachers Scholar in 2020, I started a diversity curriculum for anesthesia and surgery residents, and I have held a teaching position as a UCSF Bridges coach from 2017 to 2021 for the School of Medicine thus providing a foundation in the Differences Matter Initiative. I joined the UC Berkeley / UCSF Joint Medical Program in 2021 as the Head of Clinical Skills Curriculum.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, I completed my anesthesia residency program at New York University Langone Medical Center. I later completed my pediatric anesthesia fellowship at Stanford Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital where I focused on Global Health Education in Vietnam. Not only do I currently serve as the site co-director in Vietnam for the Health Volunteer Overseas / Society of Education in Anesthesia (SEA-HVO) Travel Fellowship, but I also serve as Designee Chair of the SEA Global Health Outreach Committee. I am currently the Chair for the California Society of Anesthesiologists Committee of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and I am the Vice Chair of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care.
