Associate Professor of Medicine

University of Pennsylvania Perelman

Description

The Department of Emergency Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Associate Professor position in the non-tenure clinician educator track. Expertise is required in the specific area of Emergency Medicine. Applicants must have an M.D. degree. Candidates should be residency-trained and board certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).

Teaching responsibilities may include demonstrated excellence in the bedside clinical teaching of emergency medicine residents and students. Additional teaching responsibilities include lectures, journal clubs, case conferences, simulation teaching, small group discussions, and others. Enthusiasm and dedication to educating our residents and students is highly valued in our department.

Clinical responsibilities may include providing outstanding clinical care to emergency department patients in one or more of our three city hospitals: Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, and Pennsylvania Hospital. Patients seen in our EDs include high acuity, complex patients, as well as patients with less acute illnesses and injuries. Penn Presbyterian Medical Center is a Level 1 Trauma Center.

Research or scholarship responsibilities:  Candidates will have an established scholarly program, with an area of concentration in one or more of the following areas: critical care, clinical patient-oriented research, health systems research, medical education, ultrasound, toxicology, emergency medicine services, administrative leadership, global health, resuscitation, laboratory-based basic mechanisms of illness; and other EM-related sub-specialties. The effort scheduled for this research is offset by the establishment of independent funding support. Promotion on the CE track requires significant scholarly productivity.

The Department of Emergency Medicine manages emergency services at three sites (HUP; Penn-Presbyterian Medical Center-PPMC; and Pennsylvania Hospital-PAH) with a combined annual emergency department census of 145,000 visits. Each site has a unique, diverse, highly acute patient population consisting of local and referral patients. Additionally, the Department collaborates with the Emergency Departments at Lancaster General Hospital, Chester County Hospital and Princeton Medical Center.

Emergency Medicine has a 4 year, highly successful, academically oriented residency program with 46 residents, multiple fellowships, and several nationally acclaimed research programs housed within its Center for Resuscitation Science and the Center for Emergency Care Policy Research. There are over 80 faculty across the three primary academic sites and there are close academic affiliations and programmatic alliances with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The Department has active collaborations with other University of Pennsylvania Centers and schools such as the Penn Medicine Center for Healthcare Innovation, Wharton Business School, Leonard Davis Institute for Health Care Economics, and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics among others.

Penn Medicine is a world-class academic institution with superb clinical facilities and programs, the number three ranked medical school in the nation, and a rich and collegial research environment.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
