The Department of Emergency Medicine provides comprehensive emergency services to a large local and referral population with approximately 140,000 visits a year at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay, UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus, and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG). The new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and 19-bed Emergency Department opened in 2015. ZSFG, San Francisco’s only level 1 adult and pediatric trauma center, paramedic base station and training center, opened a new hospital in 2016, with a 59-bed emergency department, including a dedicated pediatric ED. The Department of Emergency Medicine serves as the primary teaching site for a fully accredited 4-year Emergency Medicine residency program which currently has 56 residents and directs several fellowships. Our department recently joined UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland in a joint fellowship program in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Research is a major priority, with over 60 ongoing studies and nearly 150 peer-review publications in the past year. There are opportunities for leadership and growth within the Department and School of Medicine.
UCSF is one of the nation’s top five medical schools, and demonstrates excellence in basic science and clinical research, global health sciences, policy, advocacy, and medical education scholarship. The San Francisco Bay Area is well-known for its great food, mild climate, beautiful scenery, vibrant cultural environment and its outdoor recreational activities.
