Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Practitioner) – (Los Angeles, California, United States)

The University of Southern California (USC), founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the “Trojan Family,” which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.

The Keck School of Medicine (KSOM) of the University of Southern California (USC) and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) in the Department of Pediatrics in the Division of Hospital Medicine, are actively seeking a full time faculty member for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Practitioner)

The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hospital Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) and the USC Keck School of Medicine are seeking BC/BE pediatrics for faculty and non-faculty positions for the Division of Hospital Medicine.  CHLA is a 495 bed free standing full-service Children’s Hospital and is affiliated with the USC Keck School of Medicine.  The Division of Hospital Medicine at CHLA employs both contract and faculty members and currently has approximately 70 hospitalists.  It has a two-year Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Training program as well.  Clinical responsibilities within the Division include supervision of trainees on the inpatient service, primary care for patients on the attending only service and intake management and team assignment for internal and external requests for admission to the hospital.  Division members are also institutional leaders in Quality Improvement, Education and Throughput.  The selected applicant for this position at CHLA will follow specific inpatients on the Hospitalist service without pediatric house staff coverage and may supervise 3rd year medical students rotating through CHLA for their primary pediatric clerkship.  The Hospitalist service is a 24/7 in-house model, and as such, selected candidates will work day, evening and some weekend shifts.  While all are encouraged to also pursue scholarly work, those chosen to join the Division as faculty may have time allocated for scholarship endeavors, but this depends upon their academic tract.  Applicants should have a major interest in providing inpatient care to a diverse and complex population of patients, have excellent communication skills, and enjoy teaching learners at various levels.

The annual base salary range for this position is $95.904-$325,712.  When extending an offer of employment, the University of Southern California considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, federal, state, and local laws, contractual stipulations, grant funding, as well as external market and organizational considerations.
