West Virginia University, Department of Medicine is seeking board certified/board eligible internists for full-time faculty hospitalist positions. These positions are primarily clinically based on our inpatient hospitalist service, with the expectation of 26 weeks annually of clinical duties that can include academic and independent clinical activity. We are a growing academic hospitalist section that affords the faculty member teaching opportunities of internal medicine residents in both a one-on-one setting, and rounding teams covering inpatient consults for the Department of Medicine. In addition, opportunities are available to teach medical students both individually and in small group clinical skills instruction. Scholarly activity is highly encouraged and opportunities for research with clinical faculty also exist within the section and department. We are a large tertiary care center that has extensive consultation support and cross department/division collaboration for those faculty members interested in subspecialty fellowship training. In addition, our section provides each non-teaching team with Advance Practice Provider support.
Successful candidates must have an MD, MD/PhD or DO degree (the employer accepts foreign educational equivalent) and be eligible to obtain an unrestricted West Virginia medical license. Candidates must have completed an accredited internal medicine residency program. Faculty rank and salary will be commensurate with credentials.
