Position description

The Department of Pediatrics and Mattel Children’s Hospital of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA seeks a faculty member at an Instructor, Assistant, or Associate level to join the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine in the Health Sciences Clinical track (rank commensurate with academic qualifications.) Applicants must be board certified or board eligible in Adolescent Medicine and BC/BE in Pediatrics, Family Practice, Internal Medicine or Med-Peds. This position involves primarily outpatient care for youth up to age 26 years with 50% effort dedicated to our Eating Disorder Programs, “Nourish for Life” and “Medical Stabilization Program (MSP) at UCLA Santa Monica Hospital”. The incumbent will be part of our rotating faculty group covering the MSP on weekends and holidays. The incumbent will have the opportunity to build additional areas in clinical services and/or research programs according to their specific interests and expertise, with administrative time allotted. Duties include participation in creative work which may include research in the incumbent’s interest area that will lead to academic promotion. The incumbent will also have an important role in medical education for residents and medical students. The overall percent effort in research and clinical care will be negotiable based on funding and the needs of the Department.
Our current research teams in our division focus on reproductive health care, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal microbiome and inflammation, and eating disorders. Our department also includes a robust health services research group with emphasis on delivery of care, racial justice, health care disparities, immigrant health, school education, and multi-systems approaches to health care.
The David Geffen School of Medicine provides ample opportunities for professional development as well as education and research. The DGSOM has recently redesigned the medical student curriculum such that there are new roles for educators taking students for longitudinal teaching in both clinical and research settings. The Department of Pediatrics has over 30 Divisions and Programs. The Department is the home of the Children’s Discovery & Innovation (CDI) Institute which promotes research and training activities related to improving children's health and health care, spanning from discoveries in basic science, through translation to clinical care, and implementation in community practice. A unique feature of UCLA is the presence of the Center for the Health Sciences (CHS) complex that includes the UCLA Medical Center, School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, School of Nursing, School of Public Health, and California NanoSystems Institute, all on the same campus as the Division of Life Sciences and 7 other professional schools. UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital is consistently ranked as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation by the US News & World Report. Annually Mattel Children’s Hospital serves more than 6,000 inpatients and 40,000 outpatients of diverse racial/ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
