As of May 2021, we have open positions in each of three tracks, Academic Generalist (Hybird), Academic Outpatient, and Academic Hospitalist. All positions are Open Rank.
We are seeking highly motivated candidates who are willing to establish or continue their careers as a faculty member in the Division of General Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine in Galveston, Texas. 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.
The Academic Outpatient Position is based on a model of 9 sessions of private clinic per week plus one session of administrative/academic time, with no inpatient or weekend call duties. The Outpatient faculty will assist in the education of medical students who rotate through the private faculty clinics. Medical students are assigned to work with faculty at 2-3 sessions per week.
For the Academic Hospitalist Service, we are planning on starting a Direct Patient Care Service in the Spring 2022. At this time we envision the duties to include a direct patient care component and also a surgical co-management service. We hope to include learners and such as students and residents in the future, once a sustainable program has been established. As of Fall 2021, we are still finalizing plans as to the particulars of the program and will update interested candidates as details become available.
For the Academic Generalist (Hybird) track, we have as unique team-based approach to care. 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.
