Worcester, MA

The Department of Medicine at the UMass Chan Medical School (UMass Chan) and UMass Memorial Health Care (UMMHC) seek a collaborative and dynamic physician leader to serve as the next Director of Endoscopy for the Division of Gastroenterology. This is an extraordinary opportunity for a physician to expand clinical programs at one of the nation's leading medical schools and academic medical centers.

Reporting directly to the Clinical Chief of Gastroenterology in the Department of Medicine, the Director of Endoscopy will lead a group focused on outpatient clinical gastroenterology, endoscopy, and inpatient consultative gastroenterology. The Director will work closely with medical center and system leadership, as well as the Clinical Chief, championing operational excellence at the inpatient and ambulatory care settings with a keen eye on patient and provider flow, quality, safety, and patient experience. The Director will play an important role in identifying and recruiting talented physicians and will serve as a key mentor for developing the talented junior faculty already present in the Department. The Director will also have the opportunity to pursue their own research interests and participate in the development of the next generation of gastroenterologists through undergraduate, residency, and fellowship programs. 

The Department of Medicine, under the new leadership of Dr. David McManus, is focused on leveraging excellent academic opportunities, including well-regarded training programs and one of the top NIH-funded internal medicine research portfolios in the nation, and a patient mix that includes the most complex cases in central Massachusetts, to build upon the prodigious successes already seen in the medical school. Diversity, equity and inclusion are integral to the commitment of the Department and University. Accordingly, the Department seeks qualified candidates who can contribute to racial equity,

diversity and inclusion through service, mentorship, teaching and scholarship.

UMass Chan recently received a $175M unrestricted donation from the Chan family to expand their important public service mission. The Division of Gastroenterology is a key component in growing the clinical and academic footprint of the Department of Medicine at UMass Chan and commitments have been made to enhance resources for endoscopy. The Director of Endoscopy will have the opportunity to continue this positive forward momentum to lead cutting-edge patient care and research in endoscopy.

The next Director of Endoscopy will be committed to providing superior patient care and strive to improve systems and processes to reach UMass Chan and UMMHC goals. Candidates must hold a medical doctorate degree (or equivalent), board certification in Gastroenterology, and possess qualifications for appointment to associate professor or full professor at the UMass Chan. Proficiency in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is not required.

Please direct inquiries, nominations, and applications to Isaacson, Miller, the national executive search firm assisting with the search. All communications will be held in strict confidence. Correspondence should be submitted electronically to Stephanie Fidel, Stephanie Leong, and Nicholas Strand via: www.imsearch.com/7953.

As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, UMass Chan and UMMHC recognizes the power of a diverse community and encourages applications from individuals with varied experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds.
