We are seeking one (1) full time faculty rheumatologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on the Clinician Educator track or Clinician Scholar track.This is to replace one faculty who is departing to a full time research position at NIH and to expand our academic activities. This is an academic position in a strong and busy fellowship program with 4 clinical fellows and often a research fellow. The Division has an active Lupus Clinic as well as General Arthritis Clinics and faculty practices. Musculoskeletal ultrasonography is used and taught.
While this is predominately a clinical and teaching position, in the first 2 years there will be about 15% protected time for clinical research activities. If funding for salary support has been or can be obtained, then appropriate time will be allotted for research subsequently. An appointment as Assistant or Associate Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University will be forthcoming.
The Division has had success in obtaining funding for educational and research initiatives and in moving clinical faculty up the academic ladder in both education and research tracks.
