The Pediatric Residency Training Program at UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program is accepting applications for a graduating pediatric resident to serve as Chief Resident during the 2023-2024 academic year. The Pediatric 4th Year Chief / Junior Faculty are the first line contact persons for the residents on the pediatric services and are the liaisons between the faculty and the pediatric residents. The Chiefs are available to address resident concerns and to offer support and practical advice to residents. The Chief Residents are junior faculty members and attend on the pediatric inpatient and outpatient services and report to the Program Directors and Chief of Pediatrics. Activities also include administering the resident call schedule, leading Morning Report teaching sessions and generally playing an active role in the education of residents and medical students. Participation and mentoring by senior faculty in areas for individual professional development in a particular area of medicine/medical education and leadership is expected.
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.
Salary: $110,000. The range listed is exclusively for base compensation for full-time employment and does not include incentive compensation or benefits. Actual compensation may be adjusted for experience, training, hospital/community need and other factors.
