The VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) is a tertiary referral center for an area encompassing a large area of Northern California and incorporates all aspects of nephrology practice. The Division of Nephrology benefits from the rich scientific and clinical environment at Stanford, which fosters collaborations with investigators from many departments and institutes. The current research enterprise spans basic, translational and clinical nephrology, in areas including transplant immunology, uremic solutes, kidney stones, and aging. The Stanford Medicine Commission on Justice and Equity recently released its report, which included a recommendation to create a Center for Health Equity Excellence. Candidates engaged in health disparities research or community engagement projects may have particularly unique opportunities for collaboration and support. The successful candidate will also have opportunities for future leadership roles.
The VA Section of Nephrology is an integral part of the nephrology fellowship program at Stanford University, with nephrology fellows active in both clinical and research activities. The successful candidate will be expected to provide mentorship to research fellows. The candidate must have a MD or MD/PhD degree and must be board certified or board eligible in nephrology. The successful candidate will need to successfully obtain a California medical license and meet requirements for appointment to the medical staff of VAPAHCS.
