Elad Ziv, M.D.

Internist

Dr. Elad Ziv is a primary care physician in general internal medicine at Mount Zion. An associate professor in the UCSF Department of Medicine, Ziv's research focuses on the genetic epidemiology of breast cancer and other age-related diseases. He also studies groups of mixed ethnicity to understand the relationship between environmental and genetic risk factors in explaining differences in cancer incidence.

Ziv received his medical degree and completed a residency in internal medicine at UCSF. He then completed a fellowship in internal medicine at the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center and later the UCSF General Internal Medicine Clinical Research Fellowship.
