Tyler Law, MD

Global Health Anesthesia Fellow
What I do: 

Tyler Law is joining the Department of Anesthesia as our first Global Health Anesthesia Fellow and as part of the HEAL Initiative Global Health Fellowship. 

Tyler completed a five-year residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Toronto, and holds an MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Finance from the London School of Economics and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He is interested in the interface between the surgical system and the rest of the health system, and how these interactions can be optimized. His experience in global health is an outgrowth of this interest, and he has published on knowledge translation in developing countries, as well as completed an internship at WHO in Geneva.

Tyler’s clinical activities will be based at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. 

He's excited to join the department and expand the contribution of Anesthesia to UCSF's global health work. He's a beginner rock climber and an avid cyclist in Toronto, but Toronto is a fairly flat city, so if anyone has advice on how to survive cycling in San Francisco he'll gladly take it.
