Andrew L. Parker, PhD, Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) manager, will retire on July 1 after 20 years with UCSF. Dr. Parker joined UCSF in 2002 from Ohlhoff Recovery Systems, where he was program director for their outpatient clinic in Marin County.  

During his 20 years at UCSF, Dr. Parker served in many capacities, notably as the Threat Management Team leader and the mental health and addiction expert on the Physician’s Well-Being Committee.  

He has contributed to the fabric of the University by actively engaging, participating and leading many teams, workgroups and committees to help improve the mental health of all employees.

In retirement, Dr. Parker plans to continue his private practice part-time, but otherwise will rest, relax, and finally get around to writing some books.  

“Andrew will be deeply missed across the entire UCSF community, and we wish him the best on his road to retirement,” said Stephanie Collins, vice president and assistant vice chancellor of people wellness.  

While a search is underway for Dr. Parker’s successor, Dr. Ana Dolatabadi, PsyD, MA, clinical psychologist and coordinator of postdoctoral training, will take on additional responsibility for managing FSAP.

Congratulations and well wishes in retirement!
