Sutter West Bay Medical Group (SWBMG), in the heart of San Francisco, is seeking 
a fellowship trained, BC/BE Palliative Medicine physician to join our inpatient 
team. Our interdisciplinary team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, 
palliative care chaplains, volunteers, and staff social workers.

Provide care at California Pacific Medical Center, is a tertiary care hospital, 
providing advanced medical care for a 24 Sutter Health hospital system, 
including neuro, cardiac and critical care ICUs, transplant, oncology, advanced 
heart failure and hepatology and interventional endoscopy services. The

Palliative Medicine department has been providing care for patients for over 
ten years, and as such, the team is fully integrated into this academic and community 
environment and enjoys a respected, collegial relationship with our diverse 
academic faculty, private community physicians, hospitalists and 
administrators.

The services provided by our Inpatient Palliative Medicine Team include 
comprehensive symptom management, extensive education regarding disease 
processes and treatment options, discussions related to patients, values and 
goals of care, emotional and spiritual support, advanced care planning and 
assistance with complex care coordination. Additionally, we provide direct 
resident education during core palliative medicine rotations, and regularly 
participate in staff education and protocol development. Opportunities are 
available to participate in research both locally and in our large hospital system, 
as well as program development as we seek to build an outpatient presence in 
the next two years.

Our ideal candidate is someone interested in working closely but independently 
with a group of happy, supportive clinicians. We seek a team-player with a strong 
work ethic and high levels of empathy and compassion. As medical education is 
an important part of our services, excellent communication skills and strong 
clinical judgment are a must; Internal Medicine board certification is strongly 
preferred.
