Job details:
Cardiology Hospitalist

The Cardiology Hospitalist Service (CHS) is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Cardiology at UCSF. Cardiology hospitalists rotate between 5 different shifts on 2 distinct services: Advanced Heart Failure service (day and night coverage) and the General Cardiology service (day, swing, and night coverage).

The Advanced Heart Failure (AHF) service day hospitalist provides 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. On the night shift, the hospitalist cross-covers and admits new patients to Advanced Heart Failure as well as the Advanced Lung Disease and Cardiology Procedures services.

The hospitalist roles on the General Cardiology service involves working 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. Hospitalists on the General Cardiology day shift provide direct care and act as the primary attending for a cohort of patients. They collaborate on the care of these patients directly with the consult cardiologist. During the swing and night shifts, the hospitalist is responsible for new admissions and cross-coverage of the patients on the service (including hospitalist, APP, and resident teams).

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.
