Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery
Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University
Summary of Opportunity
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine is seeking a BC/BE internist to join the Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery in the role of nighttime hospitalist. The position will be fully supported by an in-house critical care attending and fellow, who will be readily available for consultation when needed.

The successful candidate must be BC/BE in Internal Medicine. They will provide inpatient service, including weekend coverage, from 7 pm to 7 am for a minimum of 23 weeks per year. They will serve as the attending physician, managing admissions and supervising our phenomenal team of advance providers on the uncovered unit and floor service for the Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Unlike any other academic department in the country, the Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery is comprised of physicians and scientists from a wide variety of disciplines focused on the treatment of lung disease – including pulmonary and critical care medicine, allergy, thoracic surgery, lung transplant surgery, sleep medicine, diagnostic imaging and interventional thoracic radiology, pulmonary pathology, clinical/scientific research and medical education. This unique multi-disciplinary center provides synergy for cutting edge therapies and novel basic and clinical research, as well as educational activities that span the continuum of medical and surgical care of patients with common to rare lung disorders.
In addition to a highly competitive salary and a comprehensive suite of benefits – including a generous 403b retirement match, health, dental, vision, life, malpractice, CME, a Tuition Remission Program and more – the position offers a uniquely supportive practice environment strengthened by Temple’s mission-driven culture to provide and promote world class, equitable patient care, medical education and research.
