We’re seeking a Board Certified Clinical Geneticist and Pediatrician to lead the Genetics team as Medical Director at Valley Children's Healthcare, one of the largest pediatric healthcare networks in the country, located in Madera, California.
Ranked as one of the nation's Best Children's Hospitals in seven specialties by U.S. News & World Report in 2020-2021 and recognized in 2019 and 2020 as one of the nation's top 10 children's hospitals in patient safety and quality by The Leapfrog Group, Valley Children's offers an exciting leadership opportunity. At Valley Children's main campus, you'll enjoy working at this state-of-the-art, free-standing children's hospital with 358 regional beds. The setting is a 50-acre campus on the idyllic bluffs of the San Joaquin River with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the background.
This is a growing clinical practice that provides exposure to a large and vast array of common as well as unique, diverse and complex metabolic and genetic disorders, and an exceptional team of specialists and staff. The Medical Genetics/Metabolism department is the only metabolic center between San Francisco and Los Angeles and offers comprehensive services to children with birth defects including diagnosis, genetic testing, genetic counseling regarding etiology, recurrence risks and prognosis and treatment. The team includes six Geneticists, four Genetic Counselors, a Metabolic Dietician and a Social Worker. The center is certified as a CCS Metabolic Treatment Center for the CA Newborn Screening Program and directs the Prenatal Diagnostic Center. Genetic Medicine and Metabolism is also an important part of the Children's Prenatal Diagnostic Center.
Responsibilities include clinical practice and active participation in the Stanford-affiliated pediatric resident training program with opportunities available to be involved in clinical research. Academic appointment will be recommended based on training and experience.
Situated very near the geographic center of the state, you’ll enjoy an exceptional quality of life. Residents have the unparalleled opportunity to live within one to three hours of the magnificent Pacific coast, the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains and the San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. Sonoma and Napa counties and Lake Tahoe all are within a four-drive. Where else can you live where you can enjoy skiing in the morning, wine tasting in the afternoon and watching the sun set on the Pacific in the evening?
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy living in the only city in the nation to have not just one, but three National Parks (Yosemite, King’s Canyon and Sequoia) right in your own backyard. Whether you prefer the snow, the sun or the sand, it’s all within your reach. And with so much varied geography, you’ll also find hiking and biking trails, kayaking, fishing, local wineries, farm stands and festivals, gourmet cuisine, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Another perk: The area is very affordable, and it boasts award-winning schools, making it the perfect choice for families.
