Full-Time Pediatric Gastroenterologist for Large Public Health and Hospital System in Silicon Valley 

Better Health For All

Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System (SCVHHS), a large public teaching healthcare system, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine, in San Jose CA, is seeking a full-time BC pediatric gastroenterologist physician in our Department of Pediatrics.

We offer the unparalleled opportunity to gain the long-term personal and professional satisfaction of serving our patients and the public, 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 of March 2019, SCVHHS is comprised of three hospitals:  Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC - a 574-bed central hospital), O’Connor Hospital (OCH), and Saint Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH); in addition SCVHHS includes  a large primary care network comprised of nine health centers throughout the County, 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 Department of Pediatrics

Our Department of Pediatrics has a busy 36-bed Pediatric Ward, 12-bed PICU, 40-bed level IV NICU, 170,000 outpatient visits per year, and is a key training site for Stanford medical students and pediatrics residents. Physicians who join our Department of Pediatrics are pleased to find a very collegial work environment, with robust specialty and ancillary support and an integrated electronic health record (Epic).

Our Division of Urology provides consultative inpatient services and outpatient care for patients with comprehensive urological issues. This is a key training site for Stanford urology residents. SCVMC is the safety net hospital for Santa Clara County, a level 1 trauma center, and a robotic surgery center. Physicians who join our Division will find a very collegial work environment, with robust specialty and ancillary support and an integrated electronic health record (Epic).

About the Position

This position requires flexibility in working with a diverse patient population and collaborative efforts with other specialists as SCVMC is the patients' medical home. Proficiency in Spanish is desirable but not required. The division has a robust clinic volume and a steady need for consults in the PICU/NICU and pedi ward. The candidate must be skilled in endoscopy and will be able to staff an outreach clinic in Gilroy area monthly (approximately 30 miles from SCVMC main campus). The preferred candidate is either BE/BC in general urology with a primary interest in caring for the pediatric urology population, or fellowship-trained in pediatric urology and willing to take care of adult urology patients. 

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. 

If you are interested in joining a practice with unparalleled personal and professional advantages, then please submit your letter of interest and CV to Roya Rousta at MD.Recruitment@hhs.sccgov.org.
