The child abuse pediatricians at UCI also provide inpatient and phone consultations for suspected child abuse and neglect for Orange County’s Social Services Agency, at UC Irvine Medical Center, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and Miller Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Long Beach. If interested, there may be general pediatric opportunities available within the department as well.

We are seeking a qualified candidate with a strong commitment to patient care, education, research, and community engagement. The faculty member will provide direct patient care, be involved in teaching medical students, residents and CAP fellows, and participate in community outreach. The faculty will be a part of a multidisciplinary team that serves as a resource for the region, including consultation and education on child maltreatment.

Our clinical practice is located in Orange County, California, which is known for its 42 miles of coastline with such spectacular vistas that many proclaim it the 'California Riviera'. Boasting one of the best climates in the world, with sunshine 342 days per year and an average annual temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, Orange County is known for some of the most diverse landscape imaginable and just an hour’s drive from both desert and mountains.
