The Department of Surgery at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia is recruiting an addition Trauma-Critical Care surgeon to staff our trauma and acute care surgery services. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital is one of five Level 1 trauma centers in Virginia and is staffed by the surgeons of Eastern Virginia Medical School. It is the only Level 1 trauma center for approximately 100 miles in any direction. The trauma service admits approximately 2000 patients annually with 15% being penetrating trauma. There is a nine bed Burn Trauma Unit that the trauma service manages as well as a nine bed neuro-intensive care unit that we staff. We are also the regional burn center with approximately 250 burn patients seen annually.
The acute care surgery service performed 1100 operations last year. The acute care surgery service operates in parallel to the trauma service with a separate attending and resident team. The attending surgeons rotate service responsibilities over the course of the month. There is a general surgery clinic service that the surgeon will staff as well. The surgeon will need to be board certified or eligible in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, eligible for a faculty position in the Department of Surgery at Eastern Virginia Medical School and participate in resident and medical student education, research and administration of the trauma program.
