The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco, is recruiting a board-certified, or board-eligible, Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist to join our Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine. Qualified candidates must possess board eligibility or board certification in OG/BYN and Maternal Fetal Medicine. The successful candidate will have clinical experience, including coverage of the antepartum service and labor and delivery, obstetrical ultrasound, prenatal diagnosis procedures, and perinatal consultation. Excellent communication skills and ability to function in a consultative role are required. Candidates must meet all qualifications at the time of hire. Candidate’s CV and/or cover letter must state basic qualifications (or if pending) upon submission. Faculty rank and salary are based upon qualifications and experience.
UCSF has a busy Fetal Treatment Program, and interested candidates will have the opportunity to be involved in the research and clinical activities of that program, as well. Other clinical and research activities will depend on the candidate’s background, skills and interests; we encourage opportunities for individual academic career development. Teaching of medical students, residents, and clinical fellows is also included in this opportunity.
The division has a number of exciting initiatives in which the successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate. Faculty have the opportunity to participate in clinical research activities through the University of California Fetal Maternal Consortium, a multisite collaboration focused on research and quality initiatives involving maternal-fetal medicine and fetal therapy of the five University of California Medical Centers. We have a major Preterm Birth Initiative, and have established a multidisciplinary Center for Maternal-Fetal Precision Medicine. There are significant efforts in genetics and genomics across the Department and the University, and prenatal genetics are a major part of such efforts. Our department, in collaboration with the Fetal Treatment Center and Pediatric Cardiology, is expanding our outreach efforts and growing these clinical opportunities.
UCSF has a long history of vibrant basic, translational and clinical research. The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is internationally respected and provides an infrastructure that facilitates success. In addition, there is an outstanding clinical MFM practice, a vibrant fetal intervention program, and tremendous opportunities for collaboration. We are seeking candidates who have a vision to advance the subspecialty of MFM.
UC San Francisco seeks candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
