Stephen Kiyoi | 2010-2011 Associate
Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Library (ZSFG)
When did you become director?
What was your career path that led to your current position?
I began as director of the ZSFG Library after the second year of the NLM Fellowship Program, which I completed at UCLA’s Pacific Southwest Regional Medical Library.
What is your educational background? Or additional training?
I have an MLIS from UCLA, a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership from UCSF, and I was a leadership fellow with the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries. My undergraduate degree was in English literature.
What are your top three priorities now?
- Equity in patient engagement.
- Strategic planning for our education and research mission.
- Systematically improving diversity and inclusion within health sciences libraries.
What did you learn as an Associate Fellow that you use in your position as director today?
I learned how to ask questions and learn from folks who have more expertise than I do on specific topics, and how to navigate complex organizations to arrive at rigorous, collective decisions.
