Academic Trauma Acute Care Surgeons

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Department of Surgery is seeking Trauma Acute Care Surgeons to join our growing division. Our ACS teams, covering two major tertiary referral hospitals, receive a large number of emergency general surgery, trauma and burn patients from the entire West Texas/ Eastern New Mexico region; our Level 1 trauma center is in the top decile for penetrating trauma among TQIP centers in the nation. This large, high acuity patient volume affords an excellent variety of surgical experience, and a great opportunity for clinical/outcomes research and education. All ACS surgeons follow a 12 hour shift model, with no 24 hour call. This model allows for work-life integration and time for administrative roles, education and research.

The successful candidate must be BE/BC in General Surgery, with additional qualifications in trauma/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.

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. The Chair and senior faculty have a strong track record of helping newer members seamlessly become part of the team, and mentoring them in their career growth locally and nationally. 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.

As an EEO/AA employer, the Texas Tech University System and its components will not discriminate in our employment practices based on an applicant’s race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or status as a protected veteran.
