Full Time Pulmonologist Physician for Large Public Health and Hospital System in Silicon Valley

Better Health for All

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC), a large public teaching hospital, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine, in San Jose CA, is seeking a full-time BC/BE pulmonologist physician to join our dynamic practice in our Department of Medicine.

We offer the unparalleled opportunity to gain the long-term personal and professional satisfaction of serving our patients and our diverse community, while teaching the next generation of health care providers, in one of the best places to live in the United States.

About the organization

Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System (SCVHHS) is the second-largest County-owned health and hospital system in California and is committed to improving the health of the 1.8 million people of Santa Clara County.  As an integrated health care system, SCVHHS includes a 574-bed central hospital, a large primary care network comprised of nine health centers throughout the County (including our newest center in downtown San Jose, which opened in 2016), several urgent care clinics, a broad-range of specialty services in our Valley Specialty Center, comprehensive dental services, a large behavioral health department, public health, EMS, and Valley Health Plan.  

SCVMC itself hosts five residency training programs and partners with Stanford University Medical Center for the training of residents and fellows in many Stanford-based specialties.  SCVMC also features a Level 1 Trauma Center, Burn Center, Primary Stroke Center, and a CARF-accredited Rehabilitation Center.  Owing to its geographic location and specialty offerings, SCVMC not only serves the County, but also the larger region.  

Providers in our health system also have the unique opportunity to use our integrated electronic health record (Epic), which brings together system-wide patient information.   Recently, the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) recognized SCVMC for achieving its highest level of success (Stage 7), based on our continuous innovation and optimization of our inpatient and outpatient EHR.

About the community

SCVMC is located in San Jose, California in the heart of Silicon Valley, offering a diverse choice of cultural, recreational, and lifestyle opportunities.  Our physicians live in a range of communities, including urban (e.g., San Francisco), university (e.g., Palo Alto), high tech (e.g., many cities of Silicon Valley), mountain (e.g., Los Gatos), beach (e.g. Santa Cruz), and rural/agricultural (e.g., Gilroy).  Situated in one of the most desirable regions of the country – only 45 minutes from the Monterey Bay and three hours from the Sierra Nevada – our physicians enjoy a very high quality of life.

About the Division of Pulmonology/Critical Care Medicine

The Division consists of seven full-time physicians and three nurse practitioners who manage inpatient and outpatient pulmonary consult service, MICU, outpatient pulmonary practice, and sleep medicine services.  Our Division of Pulmonology provides level 1 and level 3 polysomnography, pulmonary function testing, bronchoscopy and exercise testing.

About the Position

The successful candidate will be Board eligible/certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.  Board eligibility/certification in Sleep Medicine and EBUS capability are desirable.  Clinical practice includes a busy Medical Intensive Care Service, in-patient and outpatient consultations, outpatient clinics, reading PFTs, and polysomnograms, bronchoscopy, and potential EBUS.  In addition to clinical responsibilities, the position will be responsible for the supervision and clinical teaching of postgraduate trainees, including internal medicine residents and Stanford fellows who rotate onto our services. 

About compensation and benefits

We offer competitive compensation, generous comprehensive benefit package (including 53 days of leave per year), paid malpractice, vibrant professional environment, opportunity for career growth, and the opportunity to serve a multicultural patient population.  SCVMC is an Equal Opportunity employer.
