The Department of Family Medicine pursues a tripartite mission of innovative research, education, and clinical care in a highly diverse environment. The Department of Family Medicine and the School of Medicine at UC San Diego are committed to academic, scientific, and clinical excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.
The Department of Family Medicine invites applications for the role of Department Chair. Reporting to the Dean of the School of Medicine, the Chair will be responsible for the Department's overall management, academic planning, budget, personnel, resource allocation, and programs. The Chair will play a major role in the planning and development of the academic curriculum and research portfolio. Sufficient infrastructural support will be provided to enable the Chair to maintain a clinical practice. Given the interdisciplinary nature of education and research at UC San Diego, there will be opportunities to catalyze interactions among programs and foster a culture of learning across the continuum of clinical and implementation research and education, including in partnership with the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Jacobs School of Engineering, Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health, The Design Lab and other campus partners.
UC San Diego seeks candidates whose leadership capabilities and experience, teaching, research and community service have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to excellence. The successful candidate will be able to prioritize, grow, and support the current excellence in patient care; advance methods of medical education; and create opportunities to accelerate innovation and research. They will also identify additional recruits to help grow the scholarly activities of the department. As with similar roles, the Chair is expected to abide by UC San Diego's Guidelines for Department Chairs Duties, including in the areas of faculty recruitment, justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, wellness, service, and other policies and regulations.
