Healthcare - Other Administrative Positions

The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) seeks a dynamic, innovative, strategic and systems thinking clinical leader to serve as its next Program Director of its High-Value Care team. Ensuring high-value care, improving access to coverage and care for low-income Californians, and laying the foundation for change constitute the three overarching goals and program areas of CHCF.  The organization puts research into practice to increase the use of high-value services and to close the gap between evidence-based information about what patients should receive and the care they typically get. The team focuses on issues based on their broad population impact or high cost to the system as a whole.

Located in Oakland, the Program Director will report to the Senior Vice President of Programs and Strategy and will be a critical and integral member of CHCF’s program management team. She/he will work closely and collaboratively with the program management and external engagement teams as well as other foundation departments such as communications, health policy, and innovation fund.

Ideal candidate qualifications: M.D./D.O. degree is preferred; professional clinical degree or master’s degree in psychology, social work, public health, public policy, health care administration, business, or related field will be strongly considered. She/he should have a minimum of ten years of clinical, operations and/or project management experience, preferably in either private sector or public health organizations, including at least five years in a leadership position; on-the-ground experience in health care delivery systems, with particular expertise in working with low-income populations; extensive experience working in a health care, research, policy and/or academic environment; be perceived as an expert and leader, as well as an innovative thinker in health care delivery systems.
