Full-Time Family Medicine Physician for Large Public Health and Hospital System in Silicon Valley 

Better Health For All

County of Santa Clara Health System (CSCHS), a large public teaching healthcare system, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine, in San Jose CA, is seeking full-time BC family medicine physicians in our Department of Family Medicine.

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

County of Santa Clara Health System (CSCHS) is the second-largest County-owned health and hospital system in California and is committed to improving the health of the 1.9 million people of Santa Clara County. Santa Clara Valley Healthcare (SCVH), an agency of CSCHS, is comprised of three hospitals:  Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC - a 731-bed central hospital), O’Connor Hospital (OCH - 358 licensed beds), and Saint Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH – 93 licensed beds).  In addition CSHS includes a large primary care network comprised of eleven 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 four residency and one fellowship 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, Level 2 Pediatric Trauma Center, ABA verified Burn Center, Primary Stroke Center, and a nationally recognized 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 opportunity to use our integrated electronic health record (Epic), which brings together system-wide patient information.   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

SCVH 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., Morgan Hill and 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 Primary Care

Our Primary Care Division at SCVMC provides full-spectrum outpatient care for all patients at a variety of sites across Santa Clara County. The newly constructed Vietnamese American Service Center will focus on service the Vietnamese community in the South Bay.  The center will provide health and human services, taking culture and language into account. Physicians who join our Primary Care Division are pleased to find a very collegial work environment, with robust specialty and ancillary support and an integrated electronic health record (Epic).

About the Positions

We are seeking FM physicians. Full scope of practice is preferred, including pediatrics and ambulatory ob/gyn scope of practice is desirable but not required. For one position we specifically seek a provider who is comfortable serving a largely Vietnamese patient population, knowledge of culture and fluency in language is desirable.

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. 

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. Please indicate if you are interest in a full-spectrum position within our Vietnamese community or a position within our adult-only clinics.
