Job Description & Requirements

Job Type:

Merritt Hawkins’ Division of Academics is honored to partner with Wake Forest University, their Department of Anesthesiology, and the Adult Critical Care Section for this critical recruitment. We represent an outstanding opportunity for an anesthesiologist to have a practice as an Intensivist, but also do general anesthesiology or other interests in the school of medicine. 
The Department of Anesthesiology is seeking a faculty member with interest and board certification in Critical Care to join its growing Adult Critical Care Section. The successful applicant will be appointed to the faculty of Wake Forest University School of Medicine at a level commensurate with experience and academic achievement. Academic interest in education, research, quality improvement, or administration is strongly desirable. 
  • Allocation of time in Critical Care and your other area of interests in the Department or School of Medicine are negotiable based on your interests and career goals
  • Primary responsibilities include patient care in our Cardiothoracic/Cardiovascular ICU, a semi-closed unit with mandatory co-management, but there are many areas of expansion coverage on the near horizon.
  • Participate in the education of fellows and residents, plus quality and academic scholarly activities A highly competitive salary, university benefits, relocation allowance, and non-clinical time for academic development are offered.
  • There are plans to restart the Anesthesiology Critical Care fellowship in the next few years—we will need a Program Director at that time.
  • They are more interested in being a big departmental family and covering for each other, as quality of life is important. We are not looking for big egos, as that will not fit in well with the personalities in this Critical Care Section.
  • Opportunities to participate in research, as they have a funded basic science researcher, as well an internationally known pain anesthesiology researcher.
  • Plus there are mechanisms to provide an academic mentor and develop your leadership characteristics, if you desire an administrative path. They will support your non-clinical, academic interests.
