We seek candidates willing to excel in teaching, scholarship, clinical care, and service.

The Academic Generalist Position is based on the traditional model of inpatient service attending with and outpatient clinic. In general, our faculty spend six two-week blocks on inpatient service per year (12 weeks). Inpatient services are staffed by the Attending Physician, Residents, and several medical students. While on inpatient, there are no outpatient duties. During outpatient weeks, the faculty are responsible for 8 sessions of clinic per week (3 Resident Preceptor clinics and 5 private clinics) Each session is a half day.

For the Academic Hospitalist Service, we are planning on starting a Surgical Co-Management Service in the Summer of 2022.

Faculty, along with housestaff, are assigned to one of three teams and patient care is kept within each team, in both the outpatient and inpatient setting. Outpatient Afterhours call is shared among all faculty, with a nurse triage line being the first point of contact. Afterhours call for the faculty occurs approximately two to three times a year for a week at a time. Further reductions in clinical effort are based on teaching and service obligations to the School of Medicine and UTMB Health.
