UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine Clinical Hospitalist Position
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF Health is seeking applicants for clinical hospitalist positions. Our goal is to provide these new faculty members with clinical experiences that match their interests. Many faculty who are hired as clinical hospitalists ultimately transition to subspecialty fellowships while others remain on the faculty.
Our clinical hospitalist roles focus on both general medicine and subspecialty service. We offer three main “tracks” based on clinical interest:
• Heme-BMT Hospitalist • Cardiology Hospitalist • General Medicine Hospitalist
Heme-BMT Hospitalist The UCSF Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Hematology/Oncology at UCSF. The service provides care to inpatients requiring bone marrow transplant or management of malignancies of the hematopoietic system (“liquid tumors”). The service admits approximately 1200 patients per year.
Created in July 2007, the Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service is staffed with a unique hybrid model involving collaborative care provided by both hospitalists and oncology faculty. The hospitalists on the Heme-BMT service are physicians trained in Internal Medicine who manage the day-to- day care of the patients while the oncology physicians provide the necessary oncologic expertise. The service is organized in teams involving an oncologist, a hospitalist, and a nurse practitioner.
The service is dedicated to providing the highest quality, safest, equitable, and most compassionate and patient-centered care. The Heme-BMT Hospitalist Service thrives on a team model, where nurses, pharmacists, and physicians work closely together to maximize patient- centered care.
Medicine Nighttime Hospitalist Service at UCSF-Parnassus (NHS) The Nighttime Hospitalist Service (NHS) provides direct care, supervision of medicine housestaff, nighttime education for medicine housestaff, and nighttime coverage of hospitalist
direct care medicine services at UCSF-Parnassus. Three night hospitalists are in-house overnight with specified roles and responsibilities including: new admissions, cross-coverage, ED-to- medicine triage, and medicine consultation. The hospitalists provide clinical care for 12 hour shifts overnight, and signout to the daytime direct care hospitalists and housestaff teams in the morning. In addition to the night hospitalists, the night team at Moffitt-Long Hospital consists of multiple residents, subspecialty nighttime hospitalists (AHF, Cardiology, Heme-BMT) and the occasional medical student.
Medicine Nighttime Hospitalist Service at St. Mary’s Medical Center St. Mary’s Medical Center (SMMC) is a community-based hospital located 1 mile away from UCSF-Parnassus. The medical service at SMMC is part of the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine, but has an independent Internal Medicine Residency Program. The nighttime hospitalist at SMMC is responsible for direct care, supervision of medicine housestaff, nighttime education of medicine housestaff, and cross-coverage of the hospitalist direct care medicine services. The night hospitalist is responsible for admitting patients in turn with the overnight medicine residents and completes overnight medicine consults. The hospitalist provides clinical care for a 12 hour shift and signs out to the daytime direct care hospitalists and housestaff teams in the morning.
Advanced Heart Failure (AHF) Hospitalist The AHF Hospitalist Service is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Cardiology at UCSF. Hospitalists on the AHF Service are responsible for providing inpatient care to patients with advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension, as well as to patients who are pre- and post-heart transplantation, and those with mechanical circulatory devices. Hospitalists care for these clinically complex patients both in and out of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit in an open ICU model optimized for continuity of care. The patients are co-managed with AHF cardiologists. The cardiologists and hospitalists round on patients together and make medical decisions collaboratively. This highly successful co-management model allows for the best possible management of these complex patients--both their general medical problems and advanced cardiac disease.
In addition to daytime responsibilities, AHF Hospitalists take turns working night shifts, cross- covering and admitting new patients to the service. In addition, they assist the Division of Cardiology with cross-coverage of the low acuity Cardiology Procedures Service, the Advanced Lung Disease service, and occasionally assist with low acuity general cardiology admissions (in partnership with the Cardiology Night Hospitalist).
The AHF Hospitalist Service is dedicated to providing excellent specialized medical care to patients with cardiac disease. The AHF Service also exemplifies the unique spirit of collaboration between the Division of Hospital Medicine and Division of Cardiology at UCSF Medical Center.
Cardiology Night Hospitalist The Cardiology Night Hospitalist is a collaborative service involving the Division of Hospital Medicine and the Division of Cardiology at UCSF. This hospitalist is responsible for admitting patients to the General Cardiology service, both in and out of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit in a collaborative open ICU model. In addition, the Cardiology Night Hospitalist cross-covers a subset of general cardiology patients, supervises medicine housestaff on the General Cardiology Service, and participates in nighttime education of housestaff. The hospitalist provides clinical care for a 12 hour shift and signs out to the daytime General Cardiology housestaff teams in the morning. The Cardiology Night Hospitalist works collaboratively with the Cardiac ICU team (attending, fellow, NP), the on-call cardiology team (attending, resident), and as needed by the AHF Hospitalist overnight to ensure outstanding medical and cardiac care for patients overnight.
