Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group, Department of Internal Medicine is seeking a Rheumatologist to join our team.

Are you looking for an opportunity that offers career growth potential, the time and flexibility to pursue academic interests, student loan repayment qualification, providing care for an underserved community, shaping the next generation of rheumatologists, a great work life balance with over 35 CME and vacation days plus sick leave if needed? With over 250 days of sunshine, extended life expectancy in the US’s only Blue Zone, low cost of living, great public schools and access to National Parks, world class cities, mountains, beaches and deserts, the Inland Empire is a great place to call home.  

We are seeking candidates who want to devote their careers to academic medicine and are interested in both teaching and scholarly pursuits. Apart from running a very active consultation service at the Loma Linda University Medical Center and outpatient clinics at our Faculty Medical Offices, we also provide outpatient and inpatient services at the Riverside University Health System Medical Center in Moreno Valley. Successful candidates will be expected to provide services at all locations. Currently, inpatient services are shared between all physicians, and we are growing our division to reduce the call requirement per physician. We offer excellent support staff for prior authorization completion, scribes, and the opportunity to work in a team-based approach with a nurse practitioner.  

The Division of Rheumatology offers robust faculty development and physician wellness offerings. Some recent examples are: physician vitality; financial planning for physicians; physician wellness; physician feedback and preparing learners to get feedback; positive psychology for the physician; getting involved in clinical trials; billing, coding and documentation; diversity, equity and inclusion in medical education; an all abilities ropes course; a pottery class; a painting class; local hike; and a yoga class. In addition to division-specific faculty development, Loma Linda University School of Medicine provides free education-related CME to support our faculty through the promotions process. Loma Linda faculty have access to free courses on leadership, grant writing, and personal and professional development. Whether your passion lies with healthcare administration, clinical research, medical education or patient care, we have the resources to support you and help you thrive.

We have a 2-year fellowship program which currently has 3 fellows per year. Faculty engage with fellows, residents and students weekly. We run clinical trials and also engage in health services, medical education and other research. The division is home to seven centers; Center for Arthritis, Lupus center, Scleroderma Center, Myositis Center, Sjogren’s Syndrome Center, Vasculitis Center, and the Center for Bone Health and Osteoporosis. These provide a pool of patients for research participants and development of expertise. We manage the Fracture Liaison Service and the infusion centers at our two affiliated hospitals. Ultrasound machines are available at all of our sites. Apart from doing musculoskeletal ultrasound, we also engage in vasculitis, parotid and lung ultrasound. 

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. The Medical Center serves as the largest tertiary referral source in both Riverside and San Bernardino counties with a surrounding population approaching 4 million and is the only Level I Trauma Center serving a four-county area that covers approximately 25 percent of the state. The Medical Center and Children’s Hospital are equipped with over 850 licensed beds. 

Join our group of passionate leaders in the field of rheumatology and find joy in the practice of medicine. New graduates are welcome to apply. A great work life balance is waiting for you!
