The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for academic hospitalist positions. Our goal is to provide these new faculty members with clinical experiences that match their interests while also creating opportunities to explore and develop a path for academic success. Most new faculty positions combine clinical experiences on the teaching and direct care services with protected time for faculty development and pursuit of academic interests. These academic interests can include (but are not limited to): medical education, quality improvement, patient safety, high-value care, global health, informatics, and social medicine.
There are two academic hospitalist positions in the UCSF Health Division of Hospital Medicine: one based at UCSF Health and one based at St. Mary’s Medical Center, our community-based affiliate. The position at St. Mary’s Medical Center may align with those who are interested in a clinician educator position in a community hospital setting with more of a clinical focus. Candidates for the academic hospitalist position are asked to specify which academic hospitalist position (Parnassus or St. Mary’s Medical Center) they are applying for and can apply for both.
New this year, DHM is excited to announce the Junior Faculty Diversity Award. All academic hospitalist candidates are invited to apply. Click on the link below to learn more.
Junior Faculty Diversity Award
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for clinical hospitalist positions. Our goal is to provide these new faculty members with clinical experiences that match their interests. Many faculty who are hired as clinical hospitalists ultimately transition to subspecialty fellowships while others remain on the faculty.
Our clinical hospitalist roles focus on both general medicine and subspecialty service. We offer three main “tracks” based on clinical interest:
• Heme-BMT Hospitalist
• Cardiology Hospitalist
• General Medicine Hospitalist
Social Medicine Academic Hospitalist
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for an exciting combined opportunity as an academic hospitalist at UCSF Health and a clinician working with underserved populations in Navajo Nation through our innovative HEAL Initiative. The HEAL Initiative (Health, Equity, Action, Leadership) aims to train, transform, and build a community of front-line health workers committed to serving the resource-denied through our partnerships with 19 sites across 9 countries and Navajo Nation in the southwestern US. The program recruits local healthcare workers from our partner sites, as well as US-trained physicians, to the two year fellowship program. HEAL seeks to embody solidarity and contribute to the movement for global health equity led by communities themselves
The goal of this new position is to provide a role that combines clinical experience in Navajo Nation (approximately 20% of the time) and program work with HEAL, while also creating opportunities to explore and develop a path for academic success and a rewarding career in academic hospital medicine. This position will combine clinical experiences with protected time for faculty development and pursuit of academic interests, and will specifically provide dedicated time for leadership work with HEAL.
Academic Hospitalist Medicine Fellow
The UCSF Hospital Medicine fellowships have been training leaders in hospital medicine for a decade, including several prominent members of the UCSF faculty and that of other major academic institutions in the U.S. and Canada. Candidates must have completed training in internal medicine at the time of fellowship entry. We offer three fellowship types, but this specific application page only applies to the 1-year UCSF Academic Hospital Medicine Fellowship (AHMF). For the application process on the other two types of fellowship, go to: https://ucsfhealthhospitalmedicine.ucsf.edu/fellowship-programs.
Individuals pursuing academic hospitalist careers but who do not aspire to grant-funded, largely protected time research oriented fellowships are appropriate for the UCSF AHMF. This one year fellowship is designed to teach hospitalists key skills in leadership, quality improvement, patient safety, curricular development, and medical education and teaching. The fellows spend about one-third of the year on clinical services including the main teaching service and the night hospitalist service (both teaching roles). All fellows enroll in a UCSF class which provides a basic introduction to clinical research. There is ample time to work on multiple projects and all fellows complete a project suitable for presentation and publication
UCSF Health, a world leader in research and academic medicine, is recruiting compassionate inpatient addiction-trained physicians to lead and staff a new inpatient addiction consult. UCSF Health is searching for an excellent team member with expertise and passion to improve care for patients who use drugs to lead this important new clinical service and improve addiction care for patients admitted to UCSF Health. This role will be supported by an addiction nurse practitioner, a Quality Medical Director of Addiction, a program analyst, and a dedicated social worker.
Successful candidates will be trained in Addiction Medicine or Addiction Psychiatry, and will be responsible for leadership, oversight, and medical management of the new inpatient addiction consult service. Responsibilities include building a new consult service through direct patient care and relationship-building, teaching residents and students, providing direct patient care, managing concerns of other clinicians staffing the service, assisting other departments with direct interactions with physicians or medical staff, and working with the Quality Medical Director to ensure that high-quality, safe, and effective care is delivered to admitted patients with substance use disorders. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced clinician with interest in working as an academic addiction setting and building and growing a new clinical service.
In addition, the new faculty member would spend time in their chosen specialty at UCSF Health. We are open to candidates practicing in either inpatient or outpatient general medicine, or some combination of both.
We anticipate that the majority of clinical time will be on the inpatient addiction consult service, with the remaining time divided between other clinical, administrative, and teaching responsibilities.
