Junior Faculty Diversity Award

The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine is excited to announce the Junior Faculty Diversity Award! This is a unique faculty development award designed to support new junior faculty in the Division and enhance the diversity of our workforce. The goal is to provide additional funding for junior faculty to support career growth and promote academic activities within the Division. 

We invite all applicants for academic positions to also apply for the DHM Junior Faculty Diversity Award. The Award will provide the selected candidate with an additional 15% academic salary support in his/her first two years (roughly $30,000/year), which can be used to focus on any facet of hospital medicine of interest to the candidate, such as quality improvement, medical education, research, social medicine, or clinical excellence. There will be two awards for the 2021-2022 academic year. We believe it is essential to enhance the diversity of the Division, and we define diversity broadly as race, culture, religion, mental or physical abilities, age, gender, sexual orientation, distance traveled, and first generation professional.

To apply, please submit a letter of intent outlining how you would use the additional academic time to enhance your career and enhance the diversity of the DHM. Email letter to [email protected]. Candidates will be selected based on their academic potential and contribution to the diversity of the Division. Please note, this application is not required in order to apply for the academic hospitalist position.
