Lindsay Hampson, MD, MAS, received her undergraduate training from Duke University, where she earned a degree in Bioethics. She then completed a 2-year research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in the Department of Clinical Bioethics, where her research focused on financial conflicts of interest in research and vulnerable populations. She then earned her MD and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society at the University of Michigan Medical School on a full academic scholarship as a Dean's Scholar. She completed her general surgery and urology training at the University of California, San Francisco, in 2015 where she earned the Excellence and Innovation in Graduate Medical Education award. During her residency, she also undertook a research fellowship at the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy studies and concurrently earned a certificate in Advanced Training in Clinical Research from the UCSF Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics. After her residency training, she completed a fellowship in Genitourinary Reconstruction & Trauma at the University of Washington in Seattle, under the guidance of Drs. Hunter Wessells and Bryan Voelzke. In 2016, Dr. Hampson was recruited back to join the faculty at UCSF and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. 

Since being back at UCSF she has received numerous awards for mentorship, including the UCSF Explore Mentor Award for her mentorship of medical student research and the UCSF Department of Urology Peter R. Carroll Mentorship Award for her mentorship of urology residents. She is the Co-Director of the UCSF Lifetime Congenital Urology Program and has been named the Associate Chair of Education & Residency Program Director for the UCSF Urology Residency program.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Hampson's clinical interests focus on genitourinary reconstruction, including male and female urethral stricture disease, adult hypospadias, adult male incontinence, penile reconstruction for Peyronie's disease, surgical treatment for male genital skin deficiency (i.e., buried penis), reconstruction following genital necrotizing soft tissue infection, complications related to radiation/surgery (i.e., rectourethral fistula and ureteral stricture), and acute/delayed reconstruction following genitourinary trauma. She is also interested in redefining transitional urology care in order to improve the care of pediatric patients with congenital urologic problems who require further reconstruction and urologic care as adults.

Research Interests

Dr. Hampson's research interests integrate her background of ethics, health policy, and urologic trauma and reconstruction in order to conduct health services and outcomes research. Her primary research interests include improving quality of care and patient decision-making, management of stress urinary incontinence in older adults, understanding financial incentives in healthcare within urology, improving healthcare value through reducing inefficiencies and costs in urologic care, understanding and clinical and quality of life outcomes of patients with urologic congenitalism, and conducting research on a variety of conditions within trauma and adult reconstruction. She has authored numerous articles and book chapters on these topics. Her research has been supported by an NIH career development (K) award from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, an NIH GEMSSTAR (R03) award from the National Institute of Aging, a Pepper Center Research Education Core Advanced Scholar grant, and a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation grant.
