Yale New Haven Health System and the Yale Department of Surgery invites applications and nominations for the position of Chief, Trauma, Surgical Critical Care, Burns and Emergency General Surgery at Bridgeport Hospital, a level II trauma center and the only burn center in Connecticut.

As the Yale New Haven Health System continues to evolve into a full-fledged academic enterprise, closer collaboration, strategy, and planning is taking place among the health system and the academic departments of the Yale School of Medicine. The Chief of Trauma is expected to take a leading role in this evolution as it relates to Bridgeport and its acute care surgery services. Program development, recruitment, education/training, research, etc. should be viewed through the broad lens of utilizing the resources and reputation of Yale’s Department of Surgery and its trauma leadership and resources to enhance and complement the strategic opportunities for growth at Bridgeport. To further this advancement, the successful candidate will receive an appropriate appointment as a Yale Faculty member.

Working in close partnership with the Chair of Surgery, Chief Medical Officer, senior Bridgeport leadership and Yale colleagues, the Trauma Chief, as a critical member of the Bridgeport Hospital’s senior leadership team, will have the opportunity to lead significant clinical growth in the Division during a period of institutional transformation. The Trauma Chief will also be a thought leader within Yale New Haven Health system and will work closely with the leadership of the Department of Surgery at Yale School of Medicine/Yale New Haven Hospital to develop strategies for success and collaboration across an active system. The Chief must be a compelling leader whose passion for the educational, clinical, and research missions energize the faculty and staff, focusing their efforts on a strategic vision of excellence in all missions. He/she must also be a competent and prudent steward of the division, guiding it through what will almost certainly be uncharted territories of change in the healthcare and social environment. Importantly, the Chief must be viewed by all Hospital stakeholders as a strong advocate for balancing the clinical and academic missions of Bridgeport Hospital and Yale New Haven Health.
