Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor

University of Florida - Jacksonville | Department of Surgery

Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor

The University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville (UFCOM-J), Department of Surgery, Division of Acute Care Surgery, seeks a full-time Acute Care Surgeon faculty position at the non-tenure accruing level of Assistant/Associate Professor. We are growing our division to eleven (11) full-time surgeons and will continue to expand our clinical mission. We follow a shared service model, covering the full spectrum of acute care surgery, including adult and pediatric trauma care, emergency general surgery, and surgical critical care. We have nine Advanced Practice Providers and two Surgical Psychologists in our Division that are also committed to our mission.

UFCOM-J is an American College of Surgeons-verified Level 1 Trauma Center that provides coverage to Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Our trauma program leads approximately 4500 trauma resuscitations per year with about 3000 patients requiring admission. The blunt/penetrating ratio is 85/15%, and 20% have an ISS> 15. The hospital has 696 beds including 28 Surgical Intensive Care Unit beds. We founded the TraumaOne aeromedical transport program 40 years ago, and have strong relationships with other prehospital providers, including Jacksonville Fire and Rescue.

We are looking for a faculty member with a strong interest in medical student and resident education. UFCOM-J has a freestanding general surgical residency graduating 5 chief residents per year, as well as a fully accredited surgical critical care fellowship with 2 positions. Our clinical services host rotating third and fourth year medical students, physician assistant students, and other trainees under our supervision as part of our care teams. Our group also has strong research portfolios, with more than $1 million in research funding, nearly 70 IRB-approved or pending studies, and well over 100 publications and presentations in the previous year alone. Opportunities for clinical, translational, and collaborative preclinical studies abound, and research partnerships with UF Gainesville and extra institutional entities are very common. Salary is negotiable; UF benefits are excellent. Finally, we recognize the complexity of caring for our older trauma patients, so candidates with interest or expertise in geriatric trauma are particularly welcome.
