The OB/GYN and Women’s Health Institute at Cleveland Clinic is a nationally recognized academic Institute with a unique residency program and multiple fellowships. We are currently seeking full-time dedicated staff members to serve as Laborists at our East and West suburban hospitals. Located in the Western and Eastern suburbs of Cleveland, Fairview & Hillcrest Hospitals have a busy obstetrics service, with each hospital 4000 -5400 deliveries this year.

The Laborist is a critical part of our group practice model and oversees perinatal safety at the birth center.  The laborist will support all established obstetrical practices with care of their inpatients, as well as assume responsibility for all unregistered or walk-in patients. They will also work in conjunction with the maternal fetal medicine service to evaluate and manage hospital transfers, assist with obstetric triage, and provide backup as needed for midwifery and family medicine services. 

Laborists will be on duty 36-48 hours per week, comprised of 12 to 24 hour shifts, and work as a team to provide continuous coverage. The successful candidate should be board certified and preferably have experience in a busy obstetrical practice. This position balances clinical and academic responsibilities, including supervision of OB/GYN residents and medical students, along with the potential for faculty appointment at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. 

Cleveland Clinic is one of the world's largest and busiest health centers.  Patients come to Cleveland Clinic from all over the world.  We offer advanced treatment for all illnesses and disorders of the body.  We enjoy a strong reputation for outstanding quality care.  U.S News & World Report has declared that we are the No. 2 hospital in the country.  Cleveland Clinic’s heart program has ranked No. 1 in the nation since 1995.  Our urology program also ranked No. 1 in the nation, and three of our specialties - gastroentrerology and GI surgery, nephrology, and rheumatology are ranked No. 2.

Cleveland Clinic was founded in 1921 as a not-for-profit group practice, integrating clinical and hospital care with research and physician education.  In addition to our Cleveland location, we have Cleveland Clinic Florida, Cleveland Clinic Nevada, Cleveland Clinic Canada, and Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.  Cleveland Clinic London is also scheduled to open in February 2021.
