The 2589 Health Program Coordinator I also performs other related duties as assigned.
The 2589 Health Program Coordinator I is the entry level class of the series engaged in planning and evaluating a community health program, and may work under the supervision of a health team leader. It is distinguished from classes in the Health Educator series because Health Program Coordinator classes focus on the coordination, administration, evaluation and operation of health programs whereas Health Educator classes are primarily responsible for the educational content and promotion of health programs in either a specialized program area or in a public health district center. It is distinguished from classes in the Health Program Planner series which primarily identify and analyze community and health needs, develop health programs and conduct policy analysis, but do not coordinate and administer the planning, execution and evaluation of the work or health care providers, facilities, agencies or community groups.
Nature of Positions: Positions are located throughout the Department of Public Health, including the Population Health Division and the San Francisco Health Network.
With a broad community focus, the ultimate goal of the Population Health Division is to ensure that San Franciscans have optimal health and wellness at every stage of life. The Division is comprised of various branches dedicated to core public health services such as health protection and promotion, disease and injury prevention, disaster preparedness and response, and environmental health services.
The San Francisco Health Network is the City’s only complete system of care and has locations throughout the City, including Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, and over 15 primary care health centers.
Some positions may require employees to work directly with individuals within locked jails and psychiatric facilities, the homeless population and/or individuals who have or are carriers of infectious/communicable diseases.
Positions may focus on quality improvement programs targeted at monitoring and improving the quality of care, access and operations, patient experience and staff experience.
How To Apply
As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:
- Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
- Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.
Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.
If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
