UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and Central California Faculty Medical Group (CCFMG) are currently recruiting for a Developmental Pediatrician at the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor rank. This is an excellent opportunity to join an established academic group as they expand to better serve the primary care needs of the children and adolescents living in and around the Central Valley.
The responsibilities include 1) developing the Child Development curriculum, 2) providing inclusive care for neuro-diverse children, including those with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, and genetic syndromes, and 3) teaching residents and students in ambulatory clinic setting. Bilingual Spanish/English is desirable but not required. Interest or experience in patient-based research and/or quality improvement are advantageous. The UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program sees patients in a Regional Medical Center and has very successful faculty practice sites.
The program is based in Fresno, California, where residents enjoy a high standard of living combined with a low cost of living. The result is a quality of life uniquely Californian, yet surprisingly affordable. Limitless recreational opportunities and spectacular scenery is all accessible in a community with abundant affordable housing. While there is much to see and do in Fresno, the city is ideally located for fast, convenient getaways to the majestic Sierra (just 90 minutes away) as well as the scenic Central Coast, just two and one-half hours away. Fresno is the only major city in the country with close proximity to three national parks, including renowned Yosemite National Park.
The successful candidate must be board certified in Pediatrics with board eligibility/board certification in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics and must be eligible to obtain California medical license by the time of hire.
Central California Faculty Medical Group is an organization of more than 230 faculty physicians and additional staff providing care in approximately 80 specialties and subspecialties in inpatient and outpatient facilities. Our goal is to provide knowledgeable, compassionate care close to where you live and work.
Within CCFMG, we have more than 15 faculty practice site locations throughout the Central Valley known as the University Centers for Excellence. Each University Center for Excellence location is staffed by physicians who serve on the faculty for the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, and teach at the UCSF Fresno branch campus. This partnership provides our community access to world-class, UCSF faculty physicians right here in the Central Valley. We train more than 250 medical residents and fellows every year, approximately half of whom stay in the Central Valley to practice, live, and raise their families.
Advancing the health of the diverse communities we serve through excellence in patient care, education and research in an environment of collaboration and respect.
