Career Opportunities in Family Medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine

The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Virginia seeks candidates for a tenure-ineligible Assistant/Associate Professor position. The incumbent will work in a collaborative team, managing existing chronic medical conditions for patients admitted for rehabilitation to Health South Rehabilitation Center, while physiatrists and allied staff manage the patients' rehabilitation. Health South's average census is 40 patients per day. The mark of success for this collaborative effort will be improved quality of care at the Rehabilitation Center and a reduction in patient transfers to the acute-care hospital. Rank is dependent upon experience.

Administrative responsibilities include participating in the UVa Health System's committee structure, which encompasses the Department of Family Medicine, the School of Medicine and the Medical Center, and assisting in other areas as requested by the Department Chair.

Candidates must have an MD or DO and be board-certified or board-eligible by the American Board of Family Medicine by the start date. Preference will be given to candidates that have inpatient experience; experience with team-based care models, electronic medical records (EMR), and quality improvement methodology.
