Acute Care Surgery Opportunity

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group, Department of Surgery, has an immediate need for an Acute Care Surgeon, BC/BE in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, to join our team. The ideal candidate will be passionate about a teaching position in a collegial, multidisciplinary, faith-based environment.

We are a very busy, ACS-verified, Adult and Pediatric Level I trauma center in the Inland Empire region of Southern California.  Our catchment and referral area includes San Bernardino, Riverside, Mono, and Inyo counties with a population of more than 4 million people and tremendous diversity.  We see approximately 3000 major traumas annually and perform approximately 100-120 operative cases per month.  We are heavily involved in resident teaching and anticipate a GME-approved fellowship in Surgical Critical Care to begin July 1, 2021.  We are heavily involved in research at the institutional and multi-institutional level. 

Beginning in May 2021, LLUMC will move to a new, state-of-the-art hospital with 96 intensive-care beds, 64 progressive-care beds, and 160 acute-care beds.  The new facility will have 20 advanced operating rooms including robotic surgical capability and two hybrid operating rooms.

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group is affiliated with Loma Linda University Medical Center, Children’s Hospital and School of Medicine, with the mission to deliver whole-person care at a world-class level of clinical excellence.

Loma Linda University Health continues to lead in integrating a faith-based approach to whole person health care. As a Seventh-day Adventist organization, our mission is to follow the healing and teaching ministry of Jesus Christ 'to make man whole.' Together, we strive for Compassion, Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork, and Wholeness.
