Trauma Surgeon – Indiana University School of Medicine

The Indiana University School of Medicine’s General Surgery Division is seeking a general surgeon with fellowship training in trauma/surgical critical care or acute care surgery and will be board certified/eligible in surgical critical care. Surgeons will be working in an academic hospital and affiliated community hospitals in the Indiana University Health network. The Indiana University Health Physicians network is one of the premier tertiary centers in the state of Indiana.

Indiana University Health (IUH) Methodist has consistently been among the top-ranked institutions as graded by the University Health Consortium (UHC). For the past several years, IUH Methodist has admitted more than 3,500 trauma patients annually, placing it among the largest 5% of trauma centers by volume. There is also a busy Emergency General Surgery (EGS) Service – nearly as voluminous as the Trauma Service – that draws patients from the entire state. As a result, there are two in-house Acute Care Surgeons 24/7: one serves as the primary on-call Trauma Surgeon, and the other serves as the primary EGS surgeon, also serving as in-house backup for the Trauma Surgeon. IUH Methodist operates the largest neuroscience critical care units and hosts one of the largest critical care departments in the country. Both neurosurgical and orthopedic attending surgeons are in-house 24/7. Neurosurgical, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Critical Care, and Radiology attending physicians are also physically in-house 24/7. There are 130 critical care beds throughout the institution. It has the first, largest, and most comprehensive intensive care patient electronic monitoring system (e-ICU) in Central Indiana. The hospital serves as the home base for a fleet of four LifeLine Helicopters as well as fixed wing transport capabilities. There are approximately 100,000 ED visits per year. IUH Methodist is the flagship of the statewide IU Health Healthcare Network and the evolving IU Health Trauma System. IU Health, in turn, has partnered with Indiana University to form an expanded multispecialty group called IU Health Physicians, which will serve as the employer for new acute care surgeons.

Candidates would be expected to provide General Surgery and Acute Care Surgery (trauma, emergency general surgery, and surgical critical care) services in the ED, OR, ICU floor, and clinic to injured patients coming through the IUH Methodist system. In addition, there is an opportunity to establish an elective general surgery practice, as well.

Candidates will be responsible for providing patient care, teaching residents and students in their specialty of trauma surgery and participating in clinical research in one of the largest medical schools in the country. Basic and clinical research opportunities abound for the interested and enthusiastic candidates.

This is a full-time position. Salary and academic/clinical rank will be commensurate with experience. To learn more about the Department of Surgery, please click on this link:
