St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, a community-based academic teaching hospital and a major affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine, invites applicants for the Chair of the Department of Medicine. The Chair is responsible for providing leadership and strategic vision to all operations of the Department of Medicine, including our Internal Medicine Residency Program and 240 faculty members. Our strong academic affiliation with Tufts and longstanding reputation within the community attracts over 3500 Internal Medicine candidates each year.
The ideal candidate will be suitable for appointment at the Associate Professor or Professor level, and will have demonstrated leadership in academic medicine, including a track record of excellence in patient care, teaching, research, and significant experience as a mentor-leader in an academic setting. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to, overseeing clinical operations and quality, as well as providing financial oversight within the department. The Chair will work closely with other department Chairs, hospital administration, and Steward leadership, to enhance and improve our hospital as we transition into a full service tertiary medical center to serve the needs of our growing network of hospitals and primary care physician groups. The Chair of the Department is expected to devote 8 hours per week to clinical practice and direct patient care.
