About the Role

At UCSF’s School of Medicine, diversity is a critical component of institutional success and has been a driving value of the institution for decades. From the launch of our outreach and pipeline programs more than 20 years ago to the establishment of the Differences Matter initiative in 2015, we strive to create equitable and inclusive environments because we believe they are essential to high-quality patient care, effective learning, and cutting-edge discovery.

Our School of Medicine has three main goals to address both structural racism and interpersonal biases that contribute to inequities in healthcare for patients and education for students.

Goal 1: Create a model anti-oppressive curriculum that incorporates anti-oppressive content across all disciplines and experiences
Goal 2: Provide a supportive student environment to meet the unique needs of a diverse student body
Goal 3: Diversify and train the faculty who teach and mentor students to teach with an anti-racism mindset
Goal 4: Build Community Relationships to Prepare Physicians to Engage in Anti-Racism/Anti-Oppression Work

UCSF Medical Education is looking for a leader who brings diverse experiences in project management, business process analysis, and resource management. The Project Manager, Anti-Oppressive Programs and Curriculum will independently use and apply a wide range of project and resource management skills to manage the UCSF Medical Education anti-oppressive programs and curriculum. The Project Manager will work across teams of faculty, students, and staff to achieve these goals through applying in-depth knowledge and experience in project management and diversity, equity and inclusion projects that impact the entire organization or programs external to the organization. The incumbent operates in a highly visible, politically sensitive, complex and evolving arena of medical school including, medical student support, curriculum and faculty development. Uses advanced professional concepts and objectives to address and resolve complex policy or program issues. Works on significant, strategic issues and problems requiring political sensitivity, where analysis of circumstances and information requires an in-depth evaluation of factors.

The ideal candidate is a talented professional with diverse life experiences, and perspectives who has 5 or more years of project management, business process analysis and resource planning experience.
