Academic Obstetrician/Gynecologist Generalist in a Hospitalist/Nocturnist
We are seeking a full-time Obstetrician to join our collaborative practice in a Hospitalist/Nocturnist role. We have a robust interdisciplinary labor floor management model, in which the OBGYN MD attending manages their own patients, performs scheduled surgeries, and also serves as the consultant and backup to our Midwifery and Family Medicine services as well as our Midwife-staffed Triage Unit. Overnight, the OBGYN MD is also responsible for all antepartum patients and any postpartum patients needing physician consultation, with access to Maternal Fetal Medicine consultation via phone. We work closely with 24 hour on-site Anesthesia and NICU colleagues to care for our patients. The OBGYN MD attending also provides supervision for our department’s OBGYN Residents as well as Family Medicine Residents, and medical students. There are over 2,900 deliveries per year at BMC. Many of our laboring patients utilize a primary language other than English and our population is enriched with patients with substance use disorder, trauma histories, and complex co-morbidities. The candidate for this job will focus their efforts on excellent inpatient obstetrical care, including labor floor, triage, antepartum, and postpartum care. For interested candidates, the role will also offer opportunities to develop structured teaching for rotating trainees as well as contribute to robust health equity and quality improvement efforts ongoing across all phases of obstetrical care in our system. The role includes a minimum of six primarily weekday overnight shifts per month with additional opportunities for inpatient labor floor weekend coverage. Additionally, there are ambulatory opportunities if the candidate is interested.
Why Boston Medical Center? Emphasizing community-based care, Boston Medical Center (BMC) is the largest safety-net hospital in New England and is committed to providing consistently excellent and accessible health services to all, regardless of insurance status or any other considerations. The hospital is also the primary teaching affiliate of the nationally ranked Boston University School of Medicine, which is a world class research institution with more than $250 million in research grants each year.
BMC is more than a hospital. It is a network of support and care that touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in need each year. The institution has a strong focus on public health, both domestic and global, and a commitment to women’s health demonstrated by recently renovated state of the art facilities. In addition to our Obstetric practice, we have an active full scope gynecological surgical practice, with a majority of surgical procedures performed by our OBGYN generalist faculty. Our OBGYN ambulatory care clinic is a busy academic practice, with approximately 55,000 visits per year. 30% of our current faculty identify as Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) and 50% of our residents identify as URiM.
We seek candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. The ideal candidates have a passion for care of underserved women. Although this position has primarily clinical responsibilities, all faculty members are expected to participate in scholarly activities and resident and medical student education. We have an OB/GYN residency program with five residents per year, as well the first Maternal Health Addiction Fellowship in the United States.
