Director, Internal Medicine Residency Program, UCSF
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is launching a search for the program director of UCSF's Internal Medicine (IM) Residency.
UCSF's IM residency has a long tradition of producing leaders in healthcare (including recent directors of the CDC, the FDA, the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Gates Foundation, along with several chairs of medicine). Both Doximity and US News & World Report recently ranked the program as among the best in the country (#3 and #1, respectively). The residency program consists of a categorical track (approximately 40 residents/year) and two primary care tracks (one based at UCSF/Mt. Zion Hospital [10 residents/year] and the other based at Zuckerberg San Francisco General [8 residents/year]). Within the programs, there are Pathways to Discovery/Areas of Distinction in molecular medicine, health and society, health equities, health professions education, global health, and clinical research.
The program director directly leads the categorical track, and has overall responsibility for managing the entire IM residency enterprise.
We are seeking a leader who can take the UCSF IM residency to even greater heights. The leader will build on the existing strengths, including superb and highly engaged residents and faculty and unmatched diversity of clinical experiences. (Inpatient and outpatient training are equally divided between a large academic health system [UCSF Health], a VA medical center [the San Francisco VA], and a safety net hospital [Zuckerberg San Francisco General].) In addition to teaching core competencies, the program aims to be at the forefront of education innovations in new and emerging areas, including population health, the integration of clinical informatics into training and patient care, simulation training, the promotion of quality, safety, and value, and new practice models in both inpatient and outpatient settings. We seek to build on our tradition of diversity (28% of this year's internship class is from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in medicine) and to focus on producing leaders in all aspects of medicine and its subspecialties.
UC San Francisco seeks candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.
Position Requirements The successful candidate will have: • a career as an academic internist, generalist or subspecialist • current faculty rank of associate or full professor • current board certification in internal medicine and any relevant subspecialty • a strong track record of leadership in medical education, ideally demonstrated by achievements as an program director, associate program director, or comparable leadership role in medical education • a strong commitment to advancing a culture and climate of diversity and inclusion • superb communication and collaboration skills, with demonstrated flexibility and adaptability • an understanding of the legal, regulatory, and accreditation issues that pertain to graduate medical education
Preferred Qualifications • Expertise in curricular design, implementation, and evaluation • A track record of innovation in medical education • A track record of producing and promoting scholarship • A track record of local, regional, and national leadership in medical education; leadership in other academic areas will also be considered
