Position description


UCSF Fresno and the Central California Faculty Medical Group (CCFMG) are seeking an experienced academic leader to serve as the UCSF Fresno Chief of Emergency Medicine and UCSF Vice-Chair of Emergency Medicine. Our emergency medicine residency program was founded in 1974, with 44 EM residents in a PGY1-4 format and supported by UCSF and Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) in Fresno, California. CRMC has 630 beds, exceeded 120,000 ED visits last year, while being amongst the busiest Level One Trauma Centers in California. We serve as the Base Station for the four county EMS system and provide medical direction to the National Parks Service. Our faculty group consists of 40 full time residency trained board certified emergency physicians, many with additional fellowship training. In addition to the EM program, UCSF Fresno sponsors 7 other medical residencies, 1 dental residency and 18 fellowships and is the primary clinical training site for the UCSF School of Medicine San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education (PRIME).

The successful candidate for the Chief of Emergency Medicine will have excellent clinical, teaching, research, and leadership skills. The Chief will provide key leadership in the strategic direction of the department, enhance educational programs for medical students and residents and expand the research mission of the department. Candidates should be at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level and will be supported in part by the Gene W. Kallsen, MD Endowed Chair in Emergency Medicine. The successful candidate must be board certified in Emergency Medicine and hold or be eligible for medical licensure in California.

Fresno offers 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 Sierras, as well as the scenic Central Coast, and Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon National Parks.
