Priya Shete, MD, MPH

Assistant Adjunct Professor

Priya Shete, MD is a pulmonary and critical care physician at UCSF who is focused on improving access to quality tuberculosis (TB) care for vulnerable populations globally and domestically. Her research and policy portfolio leverages methods in implementation science, social epidemiology, modeling, and health economics to describe patient-centered and health system-derived barriers to TB care.
Understanding the broad social, economic, and structural context in which TB patients interact with low-resourced health systems allows for the development of holistic, multi-sectoral interventions to improve patient and public health outcomes. Dr. Shete completed a degree in Biophysics from Johns Hopkins University and a received her M.D. from Yale, where she focused on the intersection between infectious disease and development for her thesis. She completed her internal medicine training and pulmonary and critical care fellowship training at UCSF. Her research experience is complemented by policy and program perspective gained while working at the Global TB Programme of the World Health Organization and the US Agency for International Development. Dr. Shete sees patients while attending on the Pulmonary Consult Service, in the Medical Intensive Care Unit, and in the Department of Public Health Tuberculosis Clinic at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
