The SFMS second annual Career Fair enjoyed a great turnout. On September 27, over seventy residents and fellows from local residency programs connected with recruiters from nineteen exhibiting organizations representing variety of practice types and settings based in San Francisco Bay Area. Many residents felt this was a wonderful opportunity to become acquainted with practice position opportunities and choices available in their specialty in San Francisco Bay Area, and highlight small clinics and groups that may have been overlooked by regional or national job search events.
One event attendee commented, “Thank you for organizing an event that showcases the Bay Area’s local community clinics. This event is unlike any other because of the emphasis on San Francisco Bay Area job opportunities.”
For those that missed the career fair, SFMS will be publishing a list of available positions and recruiter contact information in our November member-only eNewsletter. SFMS is already planning for next year’s event, tentatively scheduled for September 2012 at St. Mary’s Medical Center.
SFMS would like to thank the California Pacific Medical Center for providing the venue for this event. We would also like to recognize our participating exhibitors and staff at the graduate medical departments of CPMC, UCSF, St. Mary’s, and Kaiser Permanente for their generosity and support.
