WVU School of Medicine, Department of Medicine seeks board-certified Internal or Family Medicine physicians with additional eligibility or certification in hospice and palliative care medicine. Pursue your academic goals through educating future physicians and participating in clinical research projects. 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 or family medicine residency program as well as a fellowship in hospice and palliative care medicine.  Faculty rank and salary will be commensurate with credentials.  Responsibilities will include providing excellent patient care as well as teaching medical students and internal medicine residents.  Opportunities exist to participate in clinical and translational research.  

Our well-established and growing interdisciplinary Palliative and Supportive Care Service makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of patients not only locally, but across our entire state and region. The WVU Medicine Palliative and Supportive Care Service provides statewide leadership to the West Virginia Center for End-of-Life Care, the West Virginia Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) program, and the West Virginia e-Directive Registry. West Virginia’s innovative system for palliative and supportive care is considered a national model. This position provides an opportunity for significant involvement with these programs. About half of your patient care responsibilities are on the inpatient consult service, and the other half are outpatient. Opportunities for outpatient palliative and supportive care include the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute, and the WVU Physician Office Center in a chronic disease clinic of your interest.

WVU Medicine provides the most advanced level of care available to the citizens of West Virginia and bordering states.  Major expansion is underway to Ruby Memorial Hospital, adding a 10-story tower and an additional 114 licensed beds.  WVU Medicine has also opened a three story, 110,000 square foot ambulatory care facility to help address the growing demand for services.
