Chief, Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition
The Department of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio , a comprehensive academic health university and research center in South Texas, seeks a dynamic academic leader to serve as Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Reporting to the Chair of Medicine and working with the leadership of the Department and the School of Medicine, faculty and staff, the Chief will be responsible for the overall administrative, academic and clinical activities of the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
The Division is currently the academic home to 30 faculty members. Twenty are based at UT, with 16 gastroenterologists (including 4 advanced endoscopists) and 4 APPs. Four are housed at the VA with several more being actively recruited. Six supplemental Hepatologists are based at the University Transplant Center and Texas Liver Institute. Faculty deliver a full range of inpatient and outpatient services with procedures performed at two ASCs and two hospital units at the Audie Murphy VA and at University Hospital’s recently opened state-of-the-art Advanced Diagnostic Center, with additional sites to be added in 2024. The Division sponsors fellowships in Gastroenterology (4 positions/year – 12 total), Advanced Endoscopy (1-2 positions/year) and Transplant Hepatology (1-2 positions/year). Both the VA and University Hospital provide fellows with a variety of acute patient care experiences, with training supplemented by a high-volume of ASC procedures and a diverse set of clinical electives and research opportunities.
The Division is undergoing significant growth due to high patient demand and will be integral to the nearly completed expansion of University Hospital and the opening of a new University of Texas Multi-Specialty and Research Hospital in 2024. Additional expansion is expected in 2024 when UTHSA opens the new $50 million outpatient and surgery center at Kyle Seale Parkway, which will be a five-story, 108,000-square-foot community medical facility.
UT Health San Antonio is a comprehensive academic health university and research center in South Texas. One of six health institutions in The University of Texas System, UTHSA is the primary source of health professions, education and biomedical sciences research in the region and is a major center for patient care. In addition to the Long School of Medicine, UTHSA includes a School of Dentistry, a School of Nursing, a School of Health Professions and a Graduate School. A new School of Public Health serves both UTHSA and UTSA.
This is a full-time position that will be performed on site in Texas. Salary commensurate with experience with a generous benefits package.
