Description

ZSFG Richard Fine People’s Clinic
Clinical Investigator (MD or PhD trained)

The Department of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) is recruiting for a Clinical Investigator (MD or PhD trained) to join the faculty as an Assistant or Associate Professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG). We are seeking research candidates with interest and expertise in a range of issues, including primary care, health disparities, health policy, health communication science, substance use disorders, chronic disease prevention and control, and implementation science, among others.

• Physician candidates applying for this faculty position must be licensed clinicians and board-eligible in Internal Medicine; ABIM certification is preferred; and must have either a Masters or PhD related to clinical research. The successful physician applicant will be appointed in either the Adjunct, In Residence, or Health Sciences Clinical series. Please indicate in your cover letter if you are applying as a physician candidate.

• Non-physician researchers applying for this faculty position must have a doctoral degree (PhD or DrPH) with at least 3 years of research experience. The successful PhD applicant will be appointed in either the Adjunct or In Residence Series. Please indicate in your cover letter if you are applying as a non-physician candidate.

Experience working and doing research in a safety net setting, with vulnerable populations, with community organizations or related policy entities is strongly preferred. A commitment to promoting health equity and (for MDs) providing high quality care to the urban underserved and teaching on this topic are required.

Applicants are expected to have or acquire career development award funding and to ultimately develop an independent research program.

The physician faculty member will have their own primary care clinic at the Richard Fine People’s Clinic (RFPC) for at least one half-day session per week. He/she will also supervise residents as a key member of our faculty precepting group for at least one half-day session per week. RFPC seeks a skilled clinician who has at least 2 years of post-training experience in primary care and who has outstanding primary care teaching abilities. Language proficiency in Spanish or Chinese is desirable. RFPC is an academic primary care practice that cares for ~8,000 of the City’s most medically and socially complex, ethnically diverse patients, delivering well over 30,000 visits per year. RFPC also is a major teaching site for UCSF Internal Medicine residents (categorical and primary care). Approximately half of all patient visits are performed by faculty and nurse practitioners; the remainder are carried out by residents. The position may also include one or two 2-week blocks serving as an attending on the Medicine Resident Inpatient Service at ZSFG.

DGIM at ZSFG has over 30 faculty members and three main centers of activity: providing medical care at RFPC and on the inpatient wards of the hospital; teaching UCSF medical students, residents, and research fellows; and conducting action-oriented and policy-relevant research focused on generating new knowledge and policy to improve the care and health of vulnerable and underserved populations. ZSFG is a premier public hospital with a level 1 trauma center that also has a very strong research enterprise. RFPC is part of The San Francisco Health Network, the city’s integrated safety net health system that cares for ~110,000 patients annually in 13 primary care health centers throughout the city.

UC San Francisco seeks candidates whose experience, teaching, research, and/or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.
