Department of Anesthesia General Faculty Search at BCH Oakland

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care is seeking pediatric anesthesiology faculty to work at Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland (BCH Oakland) as a part of a team emphasizing high quality, patient-centered perioperative care with a focus on evidence-based medicine. This is an outstanding opportunity to practice 100% pediatric anesthesiology and join an established Anesthesia Department with a national reputation of excellence in education, research, and perioperative care.

Anesthesia faculty participate on a team of approximately 23 faculty members working at BCH Oakland as a part of the UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care. In addition to pediatric operating room care, the pediatric division in Oakland has essential roles in patient care outside of the operating rooms, with active participation in Ambulatory Care, Acute and Chronic Pain, the Preoperative Clinic and the BCH Oakland Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.

UCSF Health encompasses five main campuses -- the UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights, the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (a Level 1 Trauma Center), Mt. Zion Medical Center, Benioff Children’s in Oakland, and Benioff Children's, Betty Irene Moore Women's and Bakar Cancer Hospitals at Mission Bay, as well as a pediatric ambulatory surgery center in Walnut Creek. BCH Oakland Anesthesia faculty may have the opportunity to work at these additional medical centers, if desired.
