Acute Care Surgery Opportunity

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group, Department of Surgery has an immediate need for an Acute Care Surgeon, BC/BE in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, to join our team. The ideal candidate will be passionate about a teaching position in a collegial, multidisciplinary, faith-based environment.

We are a very busy, ACS-verified, Adult and Pediatric Level I trauma center in the Inland Empire region of Southern California. Our catchment and referral area includes San Bernardino, Riverside, Mono, and Inyo counties with a population of more than 4 million people and tremendous diversity. We see approximately 2,000 major adult and 800 major pediatric traumas per year, as well as 1,900 ED general surgery consults and almost 2000 operative cases a year. We are heavily involved in resident teaching and have recruited our first GME-approved Surgical Critical Care Fellow to start in 2022. We are heavily involved in research at the institutional and multi-institutional level. 

We recently moved into a new, state-of-the-art hospital with 96 ICU beds and 192 floor/stepdown beds and 20 ORs including 2 hybrid rooms and robotic surgical capability.

The LLUMC-Murrieta hospital is a university-owned, community-based hospital located in the beautiful Temecula area. The ICU is a 12-bed mixed unit caring for both medical, surgical, and cardiac patients. 

Successful applicants will be at the Assistant/Associate Professor level, BC/BE in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care. Acute care surgery/trauma service weeks will be at the LLUMC main campus, while ICU practice will occur primarily at the LLUMC-Murrieta campus. Additional opportunities, including elective general surgery and call coverage for the LLUMC-Murrieta ED, may be arranged.

Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group is affiliated with Loma Linda University Medical Center, Children’s Hospital, and School of Medicine, with the mission to deliver whole-person care at a world-class level of clinical excellence.

Loma Linda University Health continues to lead in integrating a faith-based approach to whole person health care.

Together, we strive for Compassion, Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork, and Wholeness.
