|My name is Analiese DiConti-Gibbs, and I am an ABIM certified Internist and a Geriatrics Fellow at the University of California San Francisco spending most of my time at San Francisco VA Medical Center. After fellowship, I plan to return to the Los Angeles Area with a goal to become a leader in the Geriatric field and expand the Geriatric community to provide age-friendly health systems to a wider population.
Prior to fellowship, I did my Internal Medicine Residency and year as Chief Resident in the USC Department of Internal Medicine, mainly working at LAC+USC Medical Center. During my residency, I was involved in multiple quality improvement projects, from reducing unnecessary lab orders to post-discharge medication reconciliation. During my second year, I received awards for Excellence in Primary Care and Junior Resident of the Year. I graduated from Keck School of Medicine at USC where I was involved in the Health Technology and Engineering program and worked with Dr. Valero-Cuevas in the Brain and Body Dynamics Lab at Viterbi School of Engineering on a pilot study using novel technology to better quantify abnormal movements Parkinson’s Disease. I was also a founding member of the Innovation in Medicine interest group and participated in various service groups.
Prior to embarking on my medical career, I graduated with a B.S. from the Department of Biological Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June 2010, where I was president of the Women’s Water Polo Club Team and a member of BrainTrust and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Between undergrad and medical school, I worked at in the Vision Center of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as a research specialist that focusing on bringing induced pluripotent stem cell reprogramming to the laboratory and volunteered at the Hem-Onc Playroom.
I was born and raised in Glendale, California, a suburb of Los Angeles and attended a prestigious All-Girls Catholic High School, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, where I was second in my class and was captain of the softball and water polo teams.
Currently, I am keeping busy with work and learning about home improvement projects. I love to travel with my husband and can be often found creating a complicated spreadsheet of logistics for out upcoming international adventures. When not exercising, traveling, or working, I can be found sitting with my pug reading from my pile of books about European History or watching USC Trojans Football.
