What I do

My clinical work has focused on developing innovative pharmacy practice models in the physician group practice setting, primarily for underserved populations. My teaching has been in the areas of Medicare Part D, innovative practice models, health policy and leadership development. Since moving back to UCSF as the Vice Chair of Clinical Innovation my goal is to extend my clinical work to develop innovative team-based practice models in other ambulatory and community pharmacy settings. Presently, my research focus is in transitions of pharmacy care from the acute and post-acute setting back into the community with an emphasis on an accurate and portable medication list through these transitions of care.

Biography

Marilyn Stebbins joined the faculty at UCSF, School of Pharmacy in 1998. Her clinical work has focused on developing innovative pharmacy practice models in the physician group practice setting, primarily for underserved populations. Her teaching has been in the areas of Medicare
Part D, innovative practice models, health policy, managed care and leadership development. As a faculty member of the HSPR Pathway, she serves as a faculty adviser for HSPR students. Her longstanding research emphasis has been on Medicare Part D as she received, with Co-Principal Investigator Dr. Helene Levens Lipton, a major grant from the Amgen Foundation to work in collaboration with all seven pharmacy schools in California. The goal was to leverage the Medicare Part D expertise of doctor of pharmacy students statewide to help Medicare-eligible people throughout California enroll in the Medicare Part D plans that best meets their needs and their abilities to pay, and seed a spirit of collaboration among pharmacy, medical and nursing students. The ultimate hope is that this program, called Partners in D, will be applied nationwide.
