Job details:

The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for academic hospitalist positions.

Faculty positions include clinical experiences on the teaching, direct care, consult, and comanagement services at UCSF Health and our community-based affiliate, St. Mary’s Medical Center, and also include dedicated time for faculty development and pursuit of academic interests.

We define diversity broadly, including but not limited to age, gender, sexuality, nationality, ability, first generation to attend college, disadvantaged social or educational environment, low family income, and lived experiences.

Successful candidates for faculty positions will be excellent clinicians with strong references.

Candidates must possess an MD, DO, or equivalent degree, be board certified/eligible in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine, and be eligible for licensure in the State of California at the time of hire.
