Dawn Gross

UCSF
Attending Physician
Dawn M. Gross, MD, PhD is dedicated to transforming the taboo around talking about death. Earning her BA from USC and a combined MD and PhD from Tufts University School of Medicine and the Sackler School of Biomedical Science, Dr. Gross completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Tufts-New England Medical Center followed by fellowship training in Hematology with a focus in Bone Marrow Transplant at Stanford while completing her post-doctoral research at UCSF. Dr. Gross began practicing hospice after her father’s death and subsequently joined the palliative care service at UCSF. In 2016, she became host for the first of its kind live, call-in radio program, Dying To Talk, as well as co-creator of a novel high school curriculum called Death-Ed. A story-teller at heart, her writing has appeared in several anthologies as well as The New York Times, JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine and Science. Dr. Gross aims to inspire each of us to stay in a constant state of discovery about what is uniquely essential to us, to talk about it with the people we love, and to relentlessly pursue a healthcare system that is equally interested and curious to discover what these things are—to ensure that care that matters is the only thing delivered.
