Position description

UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine
Social Medicine Academic Hospitalist

Job details:
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for an exciting combined opportunity as an academic hospitalist at UCSF Health and a clinician working with underserved populations in Navajo Nation through our innovative HEAL Initiative. The HEAL Initiative (Health, Equity, Action, Leadership) aims to train, transform, and build a community of front-line health workers committed to serving the resource-denied through our partnerships with 19 sites across 9 countries and Navajo Nation in the southwestern US. The program recruits local healthcare workers from our partner sites, as well as US-trained physicians, to the two year fellowship program. HEAL seeks to embody solidarity and contribute to the movement for global health equity led by communities themselves.

The goal of this new position is to provide a role that combines clinical experience in Navajo Nation (approximately 20% of the time) and program work with HEAL, while also creating opportunities to explore and develop a path for academic success and a rewarding career in academic hospital medicine. This position will combine clinical experiences with protected time for faculty development and pursuit of academic interests, and will specifically provide dedicated time for leadership work with HEAL.

To best meet the needs of our diverse patient population, trainees, and the city of San Francisco, the Division of Hospital Medicine is specifically seeking applicants who demonstrate a unique contribution and commitment to diversity. We are committed to promoting the diversity of our physician workforce and to fostering an equitable and inclusive care and learning environment at UCSF and with our global social medicine community. 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 graduates of internal medicine programs with excellent references. Successful candidates will have evidence of or potential for outstanding teaching and leadership in research, quality improvement, health equity, social medicine, global health, medical education, or another academic area.

Interested applicants for all positions should apply with a letter of interest, their CV, and contacts for three references. Candidates must possess an MD degree, be board certified/eligible in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine, and be eligible for licensure in the State of California. In addition, all applicants for UCSF faculty appointments are required to submit a “Contributions to Diversity” statement in their application. Guidelines can be found here:
