She received her BA from Yale University and her MD from Dartmouth Medical School.

She was on the faculty at UCSF for 14 years before moving to the University of Utah in 2006. She is board certified in Anesthesiology and Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine. Her research focuses on preventing surgical site infection and improving research training for students, trainees, and junior faculty.

Dr. Hopf has focused on mentoring throughout her career, leading to recognition by the UCSF Graduate Students Association with the inaugural Faculty Mentorship Award in 1999, election to the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators in 2004, and election to the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) Academy of Research Mentors in Anesthesiology in 2011.
As Director of Faculty Mentoring at the School of Medicine from 2009 to 2012, Dr. Hopf created programs to enhance faculty recruitment and retention, including an annual Mentoring Workshop with invited outside speakers; a quarterly newsletter that highlights opportunities, mentoring programs, and resources and provides a sense of identity for the mentoring program; and frequent presentations for campus groups. As Director of the School of Medicine’s Women in Medicine and Science Program from 2009-2012, Dr. Hopf developed a vibrant organization that focuses on faculty development, including monthly seminars aimed at providing faculty the tools they need to achieve success; a yearly social for faculty, medical students, and pre-medical students; and a quarterly newsletter.
In collaboration with other faculty development leaders, Dr. Hopf helped to develop a web-based mentoring resource (http://www.research.utah.edu/Mentoring/index.html) for the whole campus.
