When the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital opened in 2015 on the Mission Bay campus, the pediatric anesthesia division relocated from the main UCSF campus at Parnassus. While the pediatric anesthesiology faculty loved the new hospital, they realized that they were now geographically separated from the rest of their department and from the medical school. This “academic isolation” was limiting opportunities for the pediatric anesthesiology faculty to network and collaborate with their colleagues and to serve on departmental and medical school committees that were based at the main UCSF campus at Parnassus. I realized that the pediatric anesthesiology division needed to establish its own academic community at the Mission Bay campus and that for this community to thrive, I needed to find a way to create a link to other nearby pediatric anesthesiolgy divisions. This was one of the goals that led to the idea and creation of the Visiting Scholars in Pediatric Anesthesia Program (ViSiPAP).
