Internal Medicine-Pediatrician — Multi-Specialty Transitional Care Team
Aimed directly at dual-trained clinicians, Valley Children’s Healthcare seeks BC/BE internal medicine / pediatrics physicians to join an ambitious, system-wide initiative to provide our adolescent and emerging young adult patients with a comprehensive approach healthcare transitions, providing them the tools, resources, and clinical continuity they need to optimize their health as an adult.
Specifically, these clinicians will be utilizing their broad clinical and healthcare delivery system knowledge as well as their comfort with complicated patients to provide both outpatient primary care as well as inpatient co-management to specific patient populations (e.g. congenital heart disease, cystic fibrosis, etc.). In the early phases of this innovative approach to care, they will also be participating in program development and, clinically, may also be managing other routine pediatric patients as our transition care team services grow in volume and scope.
Ideal candidates should be able to demonstrate a strong interest in healthcare delivery innovation, multidisciplinary “team based” case, and patient advocacy. They will be participating in new models of care (e.g. telemedicine, advanced medical home, “extensivist type” hospitalist work) and be expecting that their clinical roles will evolve as the program itself evolves to best serve the needs of our patients. Furthermore, California’s Central Valley is home to an exceptionally large population of economically and socially vulnerable patients in a largely medically underserved area.
You can expect to work in a friendly, highly-collaborative work environment with easily accessible and engaged leadership, with a commitment to healthcare delivery transitions from the very top of our organization.
Specific job requirements:
- Provision of primary and acute care services for chronically ill adolescents and young adults.
- Attendance of and leadership at multidisciplinary care team meetings.
