PEDIATRIC EMERGENCY MEDICINE FACULTY
University of California
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Emergency Medicine is recruiting for Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty. We offer two types of opportunities: 1) Clinical Educators with fellowship training in Pediatric Emergency Medicine and 2) Clinician Investigators with a track record of successful research activities, as demonstrated by peer-review publications and funding. Academic rank and series will be commensurate with qualifications.
We seek outstanding pediatric emergency physicians with board certification or eligibility in Pediatric Emergency Medicine or primary certification in both Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics. For the research positions, the successful candidate will demonstrate outstanding and original research, a track record of funding, and a collaborative spirit. We also will consider pediatric emergency medicine faculty with outstanding and original contributions in education and training, and/or noteworthy innovation in clinical practice.
The Department of Emergency Medicine provides comprehensive emergency services to a large local and referral population with approximately 93,000 visits a year at UCSF Medical Center and San Francisco General Hospital. The new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and 19-bed Emergency Department opened in February 2015. SFGH, San Francisco’s only level 1 adult and pediatric trauma center, paramedic base station and training center, will open a new hospital in 2016, with a 58-bed emergency department, including an 8-bed pediatric ED. The Department of Emergency Medicine serves as the primary teaching site for a fully accredited 4-year Emergency Medicine residency program which currently has 50 residents and directs several fellowships. Our department recently joined UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland in a joint fellowship program in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Research is a major priority, with over 68 ongoing studies and 102 peer-review publications in the past year. There are opportunities for leadership and growth within the Department and School of Medicine.
UCSF is one of the nation’s top five medical schools, and demonstrates excellence in basic science and clinical research, global health sciences, policy, advocacy, and medical education scholarship. The San Francisco Bay Area is well-known for its great food, mild climate, beautiful scenery, vibrant cultural environment and its outdoor recreational activities.
