UCSF is searching for a Pediatric Clinical Pharmacist and a Staff Pediatric Pharmacist for their renown Benioff Children's Hospital in San Francisco.

Pharmacy leadership has designed a model for Clinical Pharmacists that includes concentrated 4-week blocks rounding in Heme/Onc, 2) BMT, 3) CVCU, 4) PICU, 5) Gen Peds, 6) TCUP and 7) TOC. This rotation provides direct clinical care and exposure, while also increasing the cross functional and social strength of the department.
