Lubbock, TX

Academic Critical Care Surgeon

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Department of Surgery is seeking applicants for the position of Critical Care/ Acute Care Surgeon, working within a supportive team model that allows for work-life balance and protected time to pursue research and scholarly activities. The successful candidate must be BE/BC in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care. The candidate should have exemplary clinical skills, a team spirit, collegiality and an interest in teaching and/or scholarly activity. Faculty rank will be commensurate with experience.

As the only academic medical center serving a large area, Texas Tech receives a large volume of trauma and emergency general surgery from the entire West Texas and Eastern New Mexico region. Surgeons will rotate in the surgical ICU, as well as cover acute care surgery shifts and trauma call. The model allows for flexibility, so there is opportunity to work in a burn ICU and develop an elective surgery practice if desired. All surgeons participating in this model will be full faculty members and encouraged to participate in activities of the department and medical school. The department is active in both basic science and clinical research, and our medical school was recently ranked #1 nationally among graduates as “The best place to learn”. Surgical education is a core mission of the department, and the acute care surgery section will include general surgery residents and medical students in addition to advanced practice providers. Mentorship of faculty to grow in their careers and fulfill their personal and academic goals is a personal commitment of the Chair (Sharmila Dissanaike MD FACS FCCM) and senior faculty have a strong track record of helping newer members seamlessly become part of the team.

Our faculty enjoy competitive salaries benchmarked to national medians, along with a generous state benefits package which includes PTO, paid medical insurance, dental and disability insurance, as well as an attractive retirement package.

Lubbock is a growing educational, commercial, medical and cultural center with a college-town atmosphere. The metropolitan population in excess of 300K residents of whom 30K+ are Texas Tech students, lives in mild seasonal conditions with an average of 267 days of sunshine per year. Lubbock residents enjoy an easy lifestyle with low housing costs, unique restaurants, bars and boutiques, and a drive of less than 25 minutes to anywhere in the city. Lubbock also has great public and private school systems and over 66 public parks, resulting in a very family- friendly atmosphere.
