The UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and Central California Faculty Medical Group (CCFMG) are excited to announce the opportunity to join a thriving palliative medicine and fellowship program. We are seeking a physician to join the teaching faculty who has a passion for training young hospice and palliative medicine fellows. The position will be responsible for the provision of Palliative Care Consultations within Community Medical Center (CMC) and providing expertise for the academic and clinical functions of an active and growing Palliative Care Fellowship training service. The program includes both inpatient and outpatient components within the division of Palliative Medicine working in collaboration with a thriving regional hospital. We have an embedded outpatient clinic within our Cancer Center where we provide continuity of care to our patients with cancer. The successful candidate must be Board Certified or eligible in Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and have a California license or be eligible to obtain a California license at the time of hire. This position provides opportunities for teaching, clinical research and community practice in Palliative Care. Medical Administrative and educational leadership opportunities are available. Experience in Palliative Care inpatient and outpatient settings is preferred. Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications.

The program is based in Fresno, California, where residents enjoy a high standard of living combined with a low cost of living. The result is a quality of life uniquely Californian, yet surprisingly affordable. Limitless recreational opportunities and spectacular scenery are all accessible in a community with abundant affordable housing. While there is much to see and do in Fresno, the city is ideally located for fast, convenient getaways to the majestic Sierra (just 45 minutes away) as well as the scenic Central Coast, just two and one-half hours away. Fresno is the only major city in the country with close proximity to three national parks, including renowned Yosemite National Park.
