The VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System is seeking a full-time (8/8s) Infectious Diseases and HIV physician. Primary clinical responsibilities will include consultation on acutely ill inpatients, patients in the nursing home and dementia care units, and Veterans in our outpatient ID clinics.
Qualified candidates will also provide primary care to a large cohort of HIV-positive patients in the immediate Cleveland area as well as several surrounding rural communities, through both face-to-face and virtual modalities. The qualified candidate may also assume administrative oversight of an active outpatient IV therapy program in conjunction with a pharmacy care coordinator.
Prior experience with the VA Healthcare System is highly preferred; additionally, the Louis Stokes VA is also a Spinal Cord Injury Hub and preferred candidates will also demonstrate experience with infections in patients in acute and long-term residential spinal cord injury units. As the facility possesses an attached skilled nursing facility, experience or certification in geriatric infections of Veterans in long-term care facilities will be highly considered. Academically engaged candidates with prior presentations at national meetings and willingness to participate in the education of nurse practitioners, fellows, residents and medical students are expected.
The Cleveland VA Medical Center is a teaching affiliate of Case Western Reserve University. The successful candidate will be appointed at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine at an academic level commensurate to their experience. Preferred candidates will have completed three years of Internal Medicine training in an accredited program, as well as a fellowship in Infectious Diseases. Board Certified are preferred.
