Position Description:
Pennsylvania Hospital is located at 8th and Spruce Streets in the historic Society Hill district of Philadelphia. The nation's first hospital has been a leader in patient care, treatment techniques and medical research for over 260 years.  

The Laborist Practice at Pennsylvania Hospital is seeking a full-time OB/GYN physician to join their team. Pennsylvania Hospital is the premier hospital in the area for obstetric care. This established team of Laborists consists of 4 core physician FTE’s.

The position will focus on the care of expecting patients on Labor & Delivery, the Birthing Suite, OB triage area, antepartum unit and post-partum coverage. This model allows for immediate availability of attending physicians for patients laboring in Labor & Delivery. There are always 1 or more OB/GYN attendings, as well as a midwife, on L&D at any given time working alongside the laborist.

There is always a laborist at PAH working on L&D. It is expected that each laborist will cover L&D for a total of 80 (eighty) 24-hour "in-house" shifts/year, with each laborist doing an average of almost 2 (two) 24-hour shifts/week.

The Laborists also play a key role within Pennsylvania Hospital's OB/GYN Residency program, actively teaching and supervising interns, residents and Penn medical students.
