Requisition # HRC0345284

Are you ready to bring your clinical skills to a world-class facility recognized as top ten in the United States for Cardiovascular and Cardiac services? Do you have a passion for the highest quality and patient happiness? Then please respond to this dynamic opportunity available with one of the best places to work in Southern California! We would be happy to hear from you.

This is a golden age of heart transplantation, and the Heart Transplant Program at the Smidt Heart Institute is a trailblazer for the procedure in the US and around the world.

For four years in a row, the program has completed more adult heart transplants than any other medical facility in the nation. Heart failure—when the heart pumps less blood than the body needs—is the most common reason the procedure is necessary.

Our physicians work closely with other programs, including the Heart Failure Program, Mechanical Circulatory Support Program, Interventional Cardiology and the Regenerative Medicine Clinic.

More than a thousand patients have undergone transplants at Cedars-Sinai since the program was established in 1988, according to UNOS. Because we treat more of these patients than any other center in the United States, we can tailor our approach to each individual's needs.
