The Opportunity

Ob Hospitalist Group has partnered with this facility to develop and manage a program that provides 24/7 emergent care to expectant mothers.

As an OBHG hospitalist, you are the in-house expert whose advanced clinical skill and ability to handle any OB emergency dramatically improves patient safety and satisfaction.

You will work closely with local OB/GYNs to ensure that every pregnant woman who presents to the hospital is cared for by an experienced physician, every time.

If you are an obstetrician with a passion for patient care, exceptional communication skills, and a desire to shape the future of our specialty, we’d like to talk with you about joining our new team.

OBHG is a clinician-centered company that provides unparalleled support and resources, and superior work/life balance. As a full-time hospitalist, you’ll have the freedom to create your own schedule – typically eight 24-hour shifts per month – with no on-call duty or office management.

This position also offers:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Full benefits
  • CME allowance
  • Medical malpractice insurance with tail

Join our growing national network of highly skilled obstetricians nearly 700 strong. OBHG programs offer a variety of work options – including full time, part time, back up and travel opportunities. Looking to advance your OB career? Clinical/professional leadership positions are available at many of our locations across the United States.

Hospital Information

As one of the largest non-academic delivery centers in the country, the hospital's Women and Infants Program delivers approximately 7,400 babies each year, more than any other hospital in Northern California, and has special expertise in high-risk obstetrics.

The Location

Berkeley, CA enjoys an enviable location along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay in northern Alameda County. It borders the cities of Oakland and Emeryville to the south and the city of Albany and unincorporated community of Kensington to the north. Berkeley has a population of roughly 115,000. 

Berkeley has a Mediterranean climate, with dry summers and wet winters. The summers are cooler than a typical Mediterranean climate thanks to upwelling ocean currents. Residents enjoy cool mornings and evenings. Berkeley's location directly opposite the Golden Gate Bridge ensures that typical eastward fog flow blankets the city more often than its neighbors.

Berkeley is the site of the oldest campus in the University of California system – the University of California, Berkeley. It is one of the most politically liberal cities in the United States.

Arts and Entertainment

With more than 100 cultural arts organizations, and hundreds more artists and performers, Berkeley is filled with world-class productions applauded by audiences and acclaimed by critics.

Given the temperate climate and beautiful landscapes, it is perhaps, not surprising that Berkeley boasts many award-winning golf courses.

The city has many parks and is a leader in the nationwide effort to re-tree urban areas. Tilden Regional Park, lies east of the city, occupying the upper extent of Wildcat Canyon between the Berkeley Hills and the San Pablo Ridge. The park features a steam train, carousel, Lake Anza and a botanical garden as well as many other opportunities to enjoy its scenic locale. The Berkeley Marina and McLaughlin Eastshore State Park offer year round water sports and hiking. César Chávez Park, hosts the Annual Kite Festival every July and offers a wide range of recreational opportunities in a marina setting with spectacular views of the three bay bridges, Alcatraz, and Angel Island.

Education

Berkeley has 33 primary and secondary schools and is served by the Berkeley Unified School District. Nearby Emery Unified School District schools don't rank as high as Berkeley, while neighboring Piedmont City Unified scores higher, with a rating of 10 out of 10. Naturally, there are a vast array of collegiate opportunities in Berkeley.
