College/School/Unit: Dell Medical School
Department: Surgery and Perioperative Care
Posted: Jun 24, 2024
Apply By: Open until filled

Description

The Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care at The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School is recruiting a Urologist with fellowship training in Endourology and advanced BPH management to join our team as an Assistant, Associate or full Professor. We seek individuals with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, and potential for scholarly contributions.

About Dell Medical School and the University of Texas at Austin Medical Center

As part of The University of Texas at Austin, one of the nation's leading research universities, the Dell Medical School pursues innovation in the redesign of healthcare delivery, excellence in healthcare research, and programs in interdisciplinary and inter-professional education. It is the fifth medical school in the UT System and the first medical school established in nearly five decades by a member of the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading public and private research universities. An extraordinary commitment of resources, both public and private, has already been made to enable the development and success of the Dell Medical School including now the planning for two additional hospital towers which will create The University of Texas at Austin Medical Center. The School is partnering closely with the community and regional healthcare providers and payers to provide new models for health promotion, healthcare delivery, and clinical care for the community's entire population. The Dell Medical School is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to excellence within the learning health system.

About the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care

The Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care is comprised of faculty in broad specialties (anesthesiology, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, emergency medicine, general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and urology) with a focus on delivering outstanding care to the community.

The Department's mission is: Transforming the health and lives of the communities we serve through innovation in surgical care, research and education.

To accomplish this our priorities are:
  • To develop new models of person-centered, multidisciplinary care that reward value.
  • To educate and train future health care leaders.
  • To develop research programs to evaluate new care delivery paradigms.

Our departmental Cultural Norms is a value system that highlights attributes we aspire to and use as a framework to guide us each day. One of those is we acknowledge that we seek work/life balance and acknowledge that we are more than our work.

About the position

The faculty member will be an integral part of the rapidly expanding urology practice. The current urologic service at Dell Medical School is composed of a specialist in minimally invasive surgery / endourology and two urologist oncologists. Urologists specializing in Male Sexual Health and Genitourinary Reconstruction are currently being recruited as well.

The current Endourologist has a limited clinical commitment, and the work is growing beyond current capacity. In addition, enhancing our practice with advanced BPH management including HoLEP and other new techniques would be of great benefit to our patients. The individual should have interest in developing an ambitious specialty-focused urology practice at UT Health Austin, the clinical practice of Dell Medical School, with intention to become a local and regional referral center. Opportunities abound for collaborative research with faculty at The University of Texas at Austin.

Essential Functions:
  • Serve as a clinical content expert on Endourology and BPH Management for Dell Medical School and UT Health Austin.
  • Spearhead the expansion of the Endourology practice.
  • Design and implement a comprehensive BPH Management program within Dell Medical School's Health Transformation Building and other sites of service.
  • Assist in the training and management of a new clinical team.
  • Participate in strategic planning and other efforts directly tied to the development and growth of the Endourology and BPH practices.
  • Assist in the creation of a data and evaluation infrastructure for regularly assessing the clinical quality and cost outcomes for patients with Endourology and BPH Management needs.
  • Develop partnerships with referring physicians, hospitals, and ancillary providers in Austin and Central Texas.
  • Train and mentor medical students and residents on new models of care and clinical practice.
  • Participate in the development and implementation of Undergraduate and Graduate Medical Education curricula related to evaluation and management of Endourology and BPH.
  • Develop and foster an atmosphere of scientific and academic inquiry in conjunction with trainees and researchers within the multidisciplinary team.
  • Collaborate with other schools at The University of Texas at Austin on multidisciplinary, value-based care models.
  • Actively participate in the academic department by all required departmental policies.


Qualifications

Required qualifications:

  • Medical degree from an accredited medical school.
  • Unrestricted license to practice medicine in the State of Texas (or the ability to obtain prior to appointment).
  • Current Board certification by the American Board of Urology, or eligible for certification by having passed the Qualifying Examination (in certain extenuating circumstances, this requirement might be waived).
  • Fellowship training in Endourology, or dedicated sub-specialty practice in the same, with additional training in advanced BPH management.
  • Eligible for appointment as an Assistant, Associate or full Professor rank in the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin.
