Tanaka Chair of Medicine, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center

Los Angeles County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (HUMC) invites applications for the position of Kouichi R. Tanaka Endowed Chair of Medicine. The Chair will hold the position of Professor or Associate Professor in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Reporting to the HUMC Chief Medical Officer, the Chair will provide vision, leadership, and strategic direction to achieve the Department's clinical, educational, and academic missions within a large urban academic safety-net hospital that is part of an integrated Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS). All faculty members in the Department have academic appointments at UCLA. The Chair's responsibilities will include all aspects of managing HUMC's largest clinical department in addition to serving as a key member of the hospital and health system's leadership team. Compensation is provided by Los Angeles County, the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and the endowment.

The position offers the opportunity to lead a talented group of faculty and trainees dedicated to reducing health disparities in a traditionally underserved population. This highly collaborative environment supports a dynamic graduate medical education program with a rich history of training many clinical thought leaders. This position comes at an exciting time in Harbor's history as the campus undergoes a transformation with the planned rise of a new Ambulatory Care Tower and Main Hospital Building.

Candidates must have a strong track record as a leader, manager, innovator, and academic physician. Additional requirements include commitment to our vulnerable patient population, eligibility for California medical licensure, as well as the ability to successfully collaborate across disciplines, engineer culture change, and work effectively within a large and complex health delivery system. The Chair will be expected to identify, recruit, and mentor strong faculty, and facilitate integration of efforts in the three domains of clinical service, medical education, and academic productivity.

Located in the beautiful South Bay area of Los Angeles County, HUMC enjoys a strong affiliation with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a longstanding partnership with the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, a highly successful independent non-profit 501c3 research institute. Our center sponsors a competitive, ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine Residency Program with 17 categorical residents per year and fellowships representing most internal medicine subspecialties. All 11 of our other clinical departments have high quality residency programs, and many offer fellowships. HUMC has a tradition of providing exceptional graduate and undergraduate medical education, advancing knowledge, and extending comprehensive clinical care to a medically complex population.

Confidential review of applications, nominations, and expressions of interest will begin immediately and continue until an appointment is made.
