Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery

UCSF Fresno and Central California Faculty Medical Group are searching for an experienced academic leader to serve as the Chief of its Orthopaedic Surgery program. The program is based in Fresno at Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) that has a state of the art emergency department with an annual patient census of over 100,000. CRMC is the only level 1 trauma and burn center in the Central Valley and serves a diverse patient population. Our new orthopaedic residency program expects its fourth class to begin in July, 2013.

Successful candidates for the Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery will have a track record of excellence in clinical care, clinical teaching and research. The candidate must have demonstrated effective leadership abilities. The new Chief will provide key leadership in the strategic direction of the department, enhance educational programs for medical students and residents and expand the research mission of the department. Candidates should be eligible for appointment at the Professor or Associate Professor level and hold appropriate board certification.

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.
