Position Summary:

Acute Care General Surgeon – MedStar Health

The MedStar Health Baltimore Integrated Surgery Department is seeking board-certified/board-eligible general surgeons who will bring enthusiasm, clinical skill, and a passion for excellence to join our growing Acute Care Surgery team. Those who have completed acute care surgery and/or surgical critical care fellowships are preferred, but we strongly encourage applications from all general surgeons with a passion for emergency general surgery.

Our patients have varying, diverse backgrounds, and they deserve the best care available in Baltimore. Surgeons on the ACS team will have the opportunity to treat patients acutely, manage their inpatient and follow-up care with general surgery residents and advanced practice providers, and ensure they receive outstanding multidisciplinary care while taking home call, avoiding building an elective surgical practice, and helping to develop this new clinical model as a part of the regional department of Surgery. Individual foci on program leadership, clinical research, and surgical education are all welcome and desirable as pure clinical excellence.

There's very little trauma, but surgeons can expect one to three emergency general surgery operative cases per call day, while still having satisfying lives away from the hospitals. Our leadership team is friendly, flexible, and transparent and is invested in your success. Our residents are hard-working, smart, and energetic and have a strong desire to learn. We have a robust service of advanced practice providers to support the team as well.

MedStar Health is a large, not-for-profit healthcare corporation providing services in Maryland and the District of Columbia, and faculty appointments are available with Georgetown University's School of Medicine. As part of their Distributed Care Delivery Network, MedStar operates four acute care hospitals that provide inpatient services in the Baltimore region: MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, MedStar Harbor Hospital, and MedStar Union Memorial Hospital.

The hospitals are among the top community teaching hospitals in the United States; are home to emergency departments seeing more than 200,000 patients annually, as well as specialty centers in bariatric surgery, cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgery, gynecology, oncology, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and wound healing; and have a general surgery residency program that is more than 100 years old.
