Trauma Surgeon/Assistant/Associate or Full Professor of Surgery

The University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville (UFCOM-J), Department of Surgery, Division of Acute Care Surgery, seeks a full-time Acute Care Surgeon faculty position at the non-tenure accruing level of Assistant/Associate Professor. We currently have nine full-time surgeons and are hoping to grow as our clinical mission expands. We follow a shared service model, covering the full spectrum of acute care surgery, including adult and pediatric trauma care, emergency general surgery, and surgical critical care.

UFCOM-J is an American College of Surgeons-verified Level 1 Trauma Center that provides coverage to Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Our trauma program has about 4000 trauma resuscitations per year with about 2500 patients requiring admission. The blunt/penetrating ratio is 85/15%, and about 25% trauma patients have an ISS> 15. The hospital has 696 beds including 28 Surgical Intensive Care Unit beds. We founded the Trauma One aeromedical transport program more than 35 years ago, and have strong relationships with other prehospital providers, including Jacksonville Fire and Rescue.

We are looking for a faculty member with a strong interest in medical student and resident education. UFCOM-J has a freestanding general surgical residency graduating 4 chief residents per year, as well as a fully accredited surgical critical care fellowship with 2 positions. We also have rotating third and fourth year medical students, physician assistant students, and other trainees under our supervision as part of our care teams. Our group also has strong research portfolios, with more than $1 million in research funding, nearly 70 IRB-approved or pending studies, and well over 100 publications and presentations in the previous year alone. Opportunities for clinical, translational, and collaborative preclinical studies abound, and research partnerships with UF Gainesville and extra institutional entities are very common. Salary is negotiable; UF benefits are excellent.

Jacksonville is a growing city with a beautiful climate that affords year round outside activities such as golf, biking, running, and surfing. It is the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars (NFL) and Jumbo Shrimp (Minor League Baseball). Professional golf and tennis tournaments are hosted each year in the surrounding areas. Major college sports are in close proximity, and Jacksonville hosts annually one of the most historic rivalry games in college football, the Florida-Georgia game. Broadway Theater, major concerts, and fine arts pair well with the growing culinary scene.
