About the area 

This opportunity is primarily located at our community hospitals that serve the Coachella Valley, a beautiful low desert community about 50 miles east of Loma Linda.  This hospital system has GME programs and subspecialty support and includes acute care pediatric patients as well as well newborns. Palm Springs, known as the Playground of the Stars, and Indio, known as the Festival City host the 2 hospitals that this position would primarily serve. Our outpatient Pediatric Primary Clinic and Pediatric Urgent Care pavilion allows for easy transition of care and follow up.  The opportunity to incorporate some clinical time at the main campus can be discussed. Music, art, shopping, and plentiful outdoor activities combine with affordable housing and great schools to make this an amazing opportunity.

Loma Linda University is located between Los Angeles and Palm Springs in an area known as the Inland Empire. Nestled at the foot of the San Bernardino mountains, we have convenient access to beach cities, skiing, hiking, and a variety of other outdoor activities. This region also has excellent private and public-school systems.  

This opportunity is not eligible for a J1 Waiver.
