The Assistant Professor will be part of the Division of Geriatric Medicine. This is a full-time, benefited and tenure track position.

Educational responsibilities include: 1) teaching in a primary care setting (students, residents, and fellows); 2) participating in an active clinical residency program; as well as 3) curriculum development for medical students, fellows and professional CME programs sponsored by the Division;. The clinician may collaborate with other faculty in research projects (manuscript preparation, grant-writing process, hypothesis generation, etc.), but is not expected to be a clinician-researcher.


The applicant will be joining a collegial geriatrics division that includes 10 physicians, a nurse practitioner and several PhDs.

The work site(s) may include (but may not be limited to) the UCD Seniors Clinic, UCD Division of Geriatric Medicine's administrative offices, various community nursing homes, UCH inpatient hospital sites, and the Denver VA Medical Center and Community Living Center.
