Job Description:

Primary Care Physicians: Health Advocates Delivering Patient-Centered Care

Who we are: La Clnica de La Raza is a community-based health center committed to providing culturally appropriate, high-quality, and accessible health care to the diverse communities of the San Francisco Bay Area. We have spent over 40 years advocating for and creating a health home for the many that have been denied access to care. As health care activists, we are dedicated to making sure individuals who do not have health coverage get the same level of quality healthcare as those who have it. From our genesis as a community health center in 1971, we understood that we cannot heal our communities without also addressing the economic and social factors that affect health. Many times, this requires that we go outside and provide services in other settings to build the bridge that links individuals to our health center for preventive and primary care. Over 90,000 individuals come to La Clnica because it is a welcoming place that addresses the whole person, coordinating and connecting them to a broad network of services to improve and maintain their health and well-being. While we are still known for our activism and spirit of social justice, we are also proud to have grown into a sophisticated provider of primary health care services with 35 sites across Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties.

Be part of an excellent care team: At La Clnica, you will be able to provide primary care in an outpatient setting, allowing you to practice pediatric medicine with a wide scope. You will deliver care to a resilient patient population that is ethnically diverse and medically complex, with the aim of achieving optimal health outcomes and delivering compassionate care. We attract and retain engaged staff by supporting providers in their pursuits of a meaningful role and offering opportunities in mentorship, quality initiatives and preceptorships. La Clnica is committed to continued physician education; we hold monthly county-wide and site level provider education meetings. You will do this work alongside energetic colleagues who are dedicated to an exceptional patient experience just as they are committed to health innovation and delivery of quality care. As a pediatrician, you will be surrounded by a collaborative and well-trained care team that is invested in your success and efficiency as a provider. We offer robust perks including educational leave plus stipend, license reimbursement, FTCA malpractice with tail coverage, and flexible work schedules. In addition, we are a National Health Service Corps (NHSC) approved site for tax free loan repayment. Our clinics are located in the thriving Bay Area known for its cultural diversity, beautiful weather, highly sought after schools and year-round recreational activities.
