The San Francisco VA Health Care System provides health services to Veterans through the San Francisco VA Medical Center (SFVAMC) and seven community-based outpatient clinics. Our GI programs have expanded, generating an exciting opportunity to provide more specialty care for patients who are seen at our community based clinics.

Applicants will have demonstrated clinical excellence along with aptitude for scholarship in clinical and educational endeavors aligned with the missions of the Division, UCSF, and the SFVAHCS.

• Institutional culture that is highly receptive and friendly to patient care
• Protected time for academic work and a structured curriculum for faculty career development
• Diverse patient population

The division has a strong commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff. We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, mentoring, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
