Lahey Hospital & Medical Center (LHMC), part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, is seeking a Chair to lead its Division of Endocrinology. Candidates should have excellent management and interpersonal skills that will allow them to lead, grow and develop a division of highly skilled clinicians, researchers and support staff, along with a continued interest in the practice and advancement of endocrinology.

The division comprises 11 senior staff physicians, 2 advanced practice professionals, 2 clinical fellows, and 1 RN CDE who provide outpatient services at Burlington, Peabody, Lexington and Derry, NH, as well as at Lahey services in Bermuda. The division was recently recognized as a High Performing Specialty by U.S. News and World Report in 2019.

The division has a strong commitment to education. Our Endocrine Fellowship program is associated with Tufts University School of Medicine with 2 clinical fellows in a 2 year program supervised by our Fellowship Program Director. Staff also supports Lahey s Internal Medicine residency program through preceptorship in the clinic and lecturing as part of the subspecialty curriculum. Teaching medical students from Tufts University who rotate at Lahey for various clinical rotations is encouraged.

The responsibilities of the Chair include the direction and administration of the professional, operational, education and research programs of the Division. The Chair is responsible for physician recruitment and professional development, achievement of divisional quality, financial, and patient satisfaction goals, development of new strategic initiatives, effective management of resource allocation within the division, and optimization of divisional operations. Candidates should have an established record of achievement in endocrinology. Candidates should be prepared to lead the division in a growing health system while ensuring the delivery of excellent clinical care in partnership with advanced practice providers, teaching trainees, and fostering research.

Applicants must be board certified in Endocrinology and have a strong academic background reflected by an academic rank of Associate Professor or Professor. Additionally, management with strong medical operational expertise and leadership training is desired.

The Lahey Health integrated delivery system consists of over 1,200 clinicians providing care throughout Lahey Health s network of acute care hospitals, ambulatory centers, physician practice sites, behavioral health facilities, long-term care facilities, home health organizations and care management programs. In March 2019, Lahey Health merged with four other local hospital organizations (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, New England Baptist, Mount Auburn, and Anna Jaques Hospitals) to form Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH). BILH currently employs 35,000 individuals making it the second largest employer in the state of Massachusetts and consists of over 200 care locations including 13 hospitals with over 2400 beds and 5 ambulatory surgery centers. Approximately 4,300 physicians are associated with BILH including 840 primary care physicians managing 1.3 million patients.

LHMC, a 317-bed tertiary care facility, outpatient clinic and Level I trauma center located in Burlington, MA is a physician-led, multi-disciplinary group practice of 500 physicians. We maintain several accredited residency and fellowship programs and are an academic affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine. Conveniently located, Burlington, Massachusetts is 17 miles north of Boston and a short drive to the mountains, lakes and seaside of New England as well as cultural opportunities of Boston.
