Dr. Archna Eniasivam is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics committed to advancing health systems toward health equity and justice. She is one of two inaugural UCSF Health DEIB Physician Leads working towards a culture where all feel valued and can flourish. As part of her role, she is working with stakeholders to develop a process for our health system policies to be created and reviewed with Anti-racism, Health Equity and Trauma-Informed Care principles.

She co-founded and currently serves at the Director of Social Medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine, aimed at developing faculty and staff to engage in research/quality improvement, facilitate dialogue, and design solutions around issues of health equity. She was awarded the 2023 Society of Hospital Medicine Award of Excellence for DEI Leadership. She is also an affiliated member in the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies and a member of the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science, and Health Policy.

Much of her early experience started within medical education as a co-director from 2017-2022 for Health & The Individual and Health & Society, two three-week courses for first year medical students focused on health systems science and social justice. She was also a co-Faculty Lead from 2020-2022 for the Social Justice Discussion Club as part of the HEAR (Health Equity and Racial) Justice Pathway which engages learners in conversations, skill building, and reflection around improving health outcomes for people of color, promoting equity in the medical workforce, and actively dismantling systems of oppression that perpetuate health inequities.
