Medical Director, Pediatric Rheumatology
We’re seeking a Board Certified Pediatric Rheumatologist to lead the team as Medical Director at one of the nation’s largest free-standing children’s hospitals and largest admitting hospital in the state, Valley Children’s Hospital (formerly Children’s Hospital Central California). Responsibilities would include clinical practice and active participation in the Stanford-affiliated pediatric resident training program.
At Valley Children’s, you’ll love working with over 550 physicians at this stunning, state-of-the-art, 358-bed facility that sits on a 50-acre campus on the idyllic bluffs of the San Joaquin River, with the Sierra Nevada Mountains as your backdrop. Valley Children’s has one of the largest populations of periodic fever syndromes in the country. The team offers a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and collaborates closely with multiple practices, including Nephrology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Physical and Occupational Therapy, an Ambulatory Treatment Center, Home Care, Rehabilitation (including a 20-bed Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit), Speech Services, Neuropsychology, Nutrition Counseling and Social Work.
Situated very near the center of the state, you’ll enjoy an exceptional quality of life. Residents have the unparalleled opportunity to live within one to three hours of the magnificent Pacific coast, the mountains and the San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. Sonoma and Napa counties and Lake Tahoe all are within a four-drive. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy living in the only city in the nation to have not just one, but three National Parks (Yosemite, King’s Canyon and Sequoia) right in your own backyard. Whether you prefer the snow, the sun or the sand, it’s all within your reach. And with so much varied geography, you’ll also find hiking and biking trails, kayaking, fishing, local wineries, farm stands and festivals, gourmet cuisine, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Another perk: The area is very affordable, and it boasts award-winning schools, making it the perfect choice for families.
