Career Opportunities

Community Affiliated Faculty - Practice Opportunities

We seek family physicians who have a passion for clinical practice in an underserved population as their predominant role (80 to 100%), and a desire to engage in part time community-based academic activities including medical student education, residency education, quality improvement, medical management, or research and scholarship relevant to the care of the underserved. The family doctors will be employed by Federally Qualified Community Health Centers (CHC) in the Chicagoland area with whom the Department has ongoing collaborative relationships, depending on the availability of positions and at the discretion of the CHC. The minimum expectation is engagement in medical student or resident education either through our required clerkship, our longitudinal curriculum, our community service learning curriculum or other activities involving precepting medical students, or our residency program. This opportunity is offered in conjunction with the University of Chicago's Urban Health Initiative (UHI): http://uhi.uchospitals.edu/south-side-healthcare-collaborative

Qualified candidates will be board certified in family medicine, able to obtain a license and practice in the state of Illinois. Useful qualifications, but not expected or required, include a master's degree, proficiency in medical Spanish, practice experience in a federally qualified health center or similar underserved population, demonstrated excellence in medical student precepting or residency training, quality improvement, community based scholarship or medical management/leadership.

Faculty appointments at The University of Chicago will be offered to qualified candidates.

Inquiries are welcome and requests for information should be accompanied by a detailed letter of interest and a curriculum vita or resume.
