Trauma Medical Director

The Massachusetts General Hospital’s Division of Trauma, Emergency Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care (TESSCC) are seeking a Trauma Medical Director for its community hospital affiliate, The North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) in Salem, Massachusetts. NSMC is a Level III Trauma Center and has a busy Acute Care Surgery Program. It is one of the primary community rotations for MGH Surgery residents. The surgeon will have a joint appointment at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the North Shore Medical Center and an academic appointment at Harvard Medical School. Reporting to the Chief of the MGH Division of TESSCC and Chair of Surgery at NSMC, we expect that the successful candidate will be responsible for leading the Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Program at NSMC. The administrative, clinical care and teaching at North Shore Medical Center and the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care in Danvers MA will occupy approximately 90% of their time and the remaining 10% effort will be in Boston with the MGH Division of TESSCC. The academic appointment will be commensurate with experience and credentials. The on-call schedule is favorable, and benefits are excellent.

Applicants must be board-certificated in General Surgery. Added qualification in Surgical Critical Care and Fellowship training in Acute Care Surgery is preferred but is not mandatory.

The MGH is a 1,020-bed facility in Boston, MA and an ACS-verified Level I Adult Trauma Center, Level I Pediatric Trauma Center and ABA-verified Burn Center. North Shore Medical Center is a 425-bed Level III Trauma Center 15 miles north of Boston in Salem, MA. The Seaside and historic communities north of Boston are extremely desirable with excellent schools and rapid, convenient access to downtown Boston.
