BRIDGET KEENAN, MD, PhD
Dr. Keenan is a fellow in the UCSF Division of Hematology/Oncology, with a focus on immunotherapy and gastrointestinal cancers. She received her BS in biology at Loyola University of Maryland and her MD/PhD in Immunology from Johns Hopkins. She completed her Internal Medicine residency at UCSF.
Dr. Keenan developed an interest in issues relevant to women in science and medicine while she was a MD/PhD student at Johns Hopkins. She established "AWSM" (Association of Women Student MD-PhDs), a group whose aims included promoting women in science and medicine, career development, and recruitment/outreach of women applicants into the Hopkins MD-PhD program. Through their efforts, Dr. Keenan and several other women MD-PhD students were included in a leadership course designed for junior faculty. She has endeavored to bring the skills learned in that course to UCSF with the development of "WILD: Symposium", an annual one day leadership event for women internal medicine resident and fellows. She is excited to partner with Drs. Gilbreth and Santhosh to continue expanding lessons learned in "WILD: Symposium" to a larger audience.
