The UCSF Division of Developmental Medicine at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, San Francisco and Oakland is seeking to appoint full-time Board-certified or Board-eligible Developmental Behavioral pediatricians to our faculty. The candidates selected for these positions may be appointed to the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor ranks of the Health Sciences Clinical, Clinical X, or Ladder Rank faculty series, and will be based in San Francisco, Oakland, or both. The appointees will provide clinical care for children from highly diverse San Francisco and Bay Area Communities with a wide range of neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders.

With the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, we are now building a new Child, Teen and Family Center scheduled to open in 2020 adjacent to the Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco. This new, multidisciplinary clinical, training, and research center on child mental health and development will co-locate and support individuals experienced in working effectively with other disciplines, with families, and with schools and community agencies.

Leadership, faculty and staff from both sides of the bay are highly engaged in activities to build progressive integrated models of patient care that attend to the social determinants of health and the complex needs of the families of our patients.
