The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is currently seeking an Academic Geriatrician to join our growing team. The selected candidate will have outstanding clinical skills, be flexible and have the ability to work independently and collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary staff to build and develop new programs.
Our geriatricians currently provide a comprehensive inpatient consultation service and the group will embark on a new inpatient co-management program at Temple University Hospital this fall. Other potential future initiatives include the establishment of Mobile ACE service, care transition programs, outpatient consultative and primary care geriatric clinics. Training/work experience in these programs is a plus, especially co-management services, as well as experience/training in palliative care.
The position requires a strong interest in teaching including bedside and didactic teaching and resident supervision. Opportunities to participate in research and publication also exist for interested candidates.
Giving our patients access to some of the world’s most advanced therapies – and helping them achieve outcomes once thought impossible – is the driving force for all our clinical care, research, and medical education.
Applicants should be an M.D., D.O. or foreign equivalent with board certification or board eligibility in internal medicine and fellowship training in Geriatric Medicine. Candidates with alternative bc/be in Family Medicine may also be considered. BC/BE in Geriatric Medicine also required. Rank and compensation will be commensurate with experience.
Interested candidates should submit a current curriculum vita online.
