UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine Clinical Hospitalist Position
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for clinical hospitalist positions. Our goal is to provide these new faculty members with clinical experiences that match their interests. Many faculty who are hired as clinical hospitalists ultimately transition to subspecialty fellowships while others remain on the faculty.
Our clinical hospitalist roles focus on both general medicine and subspecialty service. We offer three main “tracks” based on clinical interest:
• Heme-BMT Hospitalist
• General Medicine Night Hospitalist
• Cardiology Hospitalist
The UCSF Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Hematology/Oncology at UCSF. The service provides care to inpatients requiring bone marrow transplant or management of malignancies of the hematopoietic system (“liquid tumors”). The service admits approximately 1200 patients per year.
Created in July 2007, the Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service is staffed with a unique hybrid model involving collaborative care provided by both hospitalists and oncology faculty. The hospitalists on the Heme-BMT service are physicians trained in Internal Medicine who manage the day-to- day care of the patients while the oncology physicians provide the necessary oncologic expertise. The service is organized in teams involving an oncologist, a hospitalist, and a nurse practitioner.
The service is dedicated to providing the highest quality, safest, equitable, and most compassionate and patient-centered care. The Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service thrives on a team model, where nurses, pharmacists, and physicians work closely together to maximize patient- centered care.
General Medicine Night Hospitalist
Medicine Night Hospitalist Service at UCSF-Parnassus (NHS)
The Night Hospitalist Service (NHS) provides direct care, supervision of medicine housestaff, nighttime education for medicine housestaff, and nighttime coverage of hospitalist direct care medicine services at UCSF-Parnassus. Four night hospitalists are in-house overnight with specified roles and responsibilities including: new admissions, cross-coverage, ED-to-medicine triage, and medicine consultation. The hospitalists provide clinical care for 12 hour shifts overnight, and sign-out to the daytime direct care hospitalists and housestaff teams in the morning. In addition to the night hospitalists, the night team at Moffitt-Long Hospital consists of multiple residents and subspecialty nighttime hospitalists (Cardiology, Heme-BMT).
Medicine Night Hospitalist Service at St. Mary’s Medical Center
St. Mary’s Medical Center (SMMC) is a community-based hospital located 1 mile away from UCSF-Parnassus. The medical service at SMMC is part of the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine, but has an independent Internal Medicine Residency Program. The nighttime hospitalist at SMMC is responsible for direct care, supervision of medicine housestaff, nighttime education of medicine housestaff, and cross-coverage of the hospitalist direct care medicine services. The night hospitalist is responsible for admitting patients in turn with the overnight medicine residents and completes overnight medicine consults. The hospitalist provides clinical care for a 12-hour shift and signs out to the daytime direct care hospitalists and housestaff teams in the morning.
The Cardiology Hospitalist Service (CHS) is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Cardiology at UCSF. Cardiology hospitalists fill several roles including coverage of the Advanced Heart Failure service (day and night coverage) and the general Cardiology service (swing and night coverage).
Hospitalists on the Advanced Heart Failure (AHF) service are responsible for providing inpatient care to patients who have advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension, and those who are pre- and post- heart transplantation. The cardiologists and hospitalist round on patients together and make medical decisions collaboratively in a co-management model. In addition to daytime responsibilities, the hospitalists take turns working night shifts, which involves cross-covering and admitting new patients to Advanced Heart Failure as well as the Advanced Lung Disease and Cardiology Procedures Services.
Hospitalists on the general Cardiology service are responsible for new admissions and cross-coverage during the swing and night shifts. The hospitalist works collaboratively with the other members of the general Cardiology team, including cardiology attendings, fellows, residents, and APPs, to ensure outstanding medical and cardiac care for patients.
The Cardiology Hospitalist Service is dedicated to providing excellent specialized medical care to patients with cardiac disease. The service exemplifies the unique spirit of collaboration between the Division of Hospital Medicine and Division of Cardiology at UCSF Medical Center.
