We are seeking a board-certified or board-eligible minimally invasive/bariatric/general surgeon for a tenure track position at the University of Michigan. This would be a joint appointment at the Ann Arbor Veterans Administration Hospital and the University of Michigan Health System; primary clinical activities would occur at the VA Hospital. The Department of Surgery at the University of Michigan, founded in 1850, is nationally recognized for excellence in patient care and education. In addition, the robust research portfolio of the Department yielded the #1 ranking in NIH funding in 2017.
The Ann Arbor VA is a tertiary/quaternary referral center for complex general surgery patients from the state of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The clinical milieu includes patients with inguinal and abdominal wall hernia disease, obesity, benign foregut/esophageal pathology, and a broad-based general surgery practice, with a focus on minimally invasive approaches to these pathologies. The Ann Arbor VA has a broad referral base for complex abdominal wall pathology and hernia disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and the largest bariatric surgery program in the VA system. Additional responsibilities include resident and medical student education in the clinic and operating room and interfacing with endocrinology, gastroenterology, and primary care colleagues regarding hernia, foregut, and bariatric surgery patients. This is a superb opportunity for a general/MIS surgeon who wishes to pursue an academic career with significant protected time for research and education. Requirements include completion of an MIS/bariatric surgery fellowship.
We are looking for an academic surgeon to join a robust, tight-knit, team-oriented division of general surgery faculty members at the Ann Arbor VA Hospital. The academic rank will be commensurate with the applicant’s credentials.
