Program Manager

UCSF, in collaboration with California Department of Public Health, is developing and training a workforce of COVID-19 outbreak investigators at local health jurisdictions. While the outbreak management course is designed to equip staff with knowledge and skills to mitigate and contain outbreaks, resources vary across locales and many LHSs, particularly those is rural and small jurisdictions, do not have adequate staffing to respond in all situations. To help meet the need for continued technical support and consultation, UCSF will develop and operate an outbreak management warm line. The Program Manager will provide broad management oversight of activities, including staffing, programmatic and fiscal oversight, regular communications with partners, and monitoring and reporting of program activities.
