Assistant Professor (Ladder Rank/In-Residence) Clinical Informatics, Health IT, and Emergency Medicine

University of California, San Diego

The Department of Emergency Medicine (http://emergencymed.ucsd.edu/Pages/default.aspx) at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body invites applications from outstanding candidates for a Ladder-Rank appointment with the UCSD School of Medicine in the Department of Emergency Medicine with a specific focus on Clinical Informatics and Health Information Technology (IT).

The Department currently operates two Emergency Departments with a combined census of 61,000 patients annually (level 1 trauma center and academic medical center), with a four-year EM residency program (9 residents/year), teaching programs for 1st through 4th year medical students, and robust fellowship programs in Toxicology, Hyperbarics, Pediatric EM, EMS, Ultrasound, and Research.

The UCSD Department of Emergency Medicine has had a long track-record of success as a leader in Health IT with extramural funding from the NIH, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and recent $15.3m Beacon Community award from the National Coordinator for Health IT. In these efforts, the Department has collaborated with the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering, one of the nation's top ranked Engineering Schools, and the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CalIT2). The successful candidate will be able to build on this success with the potential for greater collaboration and possible joint appointment as faculty at the UCSD School of Medicine and School of Engineering.

The Department provides excellent opportunities for clinical service, teaching, and research at one of the nation's top-ranked Medical Schools and one of the most academically productive Departments of Emergency Medicine in the country.

Candidates with an MD and California Medical license/eligibility and board certification/eligibility in Emergency Medicine required.

Candidates with a background in engineering, informatics, or computer science are strongly encouraged to apply.

Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor rank. Series will include 50% Ladder Rank and 50% In-Residence with qualified candidates with secured extramural funding. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
