Position Description

We have exceptional full and part-time opportunities to join our growing Academic Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospitalist service at University of Washington Medical Center-Northwest (UWMC-NW) at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor. UWMC-NW is the bustling, community-based campus of UWMC with a new, state of the art Labor and Delivery Unit and annual birth volumes of ~1,700 with projected growth to ~2,000 over the next few years. UWMC-NW has a highly collaborative culture on the Labor and Delivery Unit with exceptional relationships between physicians, nurses, midwives, and support staff. As part of the University of Washington, there are strong opportunities for surgical and clinical mentorship, and selected applicants would have the opportunity to engage in teaching, research and service in general Obstetrics and Gynecology.

A 1.0 FTE Academic OBGYN Hospitalist faculty member at UW-NW provides ample time for both clinical and administrative responsibilities.

Clinical responsibilities add up to 73 shifts per year, or an average of six 24-hour shifts per month. This shift count accounts for generous, paid four-week vacation and two-week CME benefits. 24-hour call is in-house with a Generalist OBGYNpartner. Primary clinical responsibilities include:
  • Evaluation of patients in OB triage
  • Consultation and surgical coverage for family medicine and midwifery colleagues on labor and delivery
  • Direct inpatient care on the antepartum and postpartum services
  • Labor management, primary or assistant surgeon in cesarean sections, operative and spontaneous vaginal deliveries
  • Consultation and surgical management for the Northwest Emergency Department
Administrative time is allotted for the following:
  • Attendance to monthly Division meetings
  • Attendance to departmental presentations, such as Grand Rounds and M&M Conference
  • Contributions to the training of residents and medical students
  • Participation in quality improvement initiatives for the labor and delivery unit. Examples include OB sepsis working group, NTSV committee, and substance use in pregnancy working group.
As a part-time (0.50 FTE) position, clinical responsibilities add up to 48 shifts per year, or an average of four 24-hour shifts per month without vacation, CME, or administrative time included.

The full-time salary range for this position will be: $24,000 - $26,250 per month ($288,000 - $315,000 annually) commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination. This range is inclusive of base salary provided through the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan in addition to base salary provided by the University. Please note that only compensation provided by the University is included in University benefit determinations and calculations. Compensation provided by UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan may provide eligibility for separate benefits offered by that organization.

  • MD or DO degree or foreign equivalent.
  • Board eligibility/certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology and an excellent record of clinical service.
  • Two years of work experience is preferred; however, we will happily consider new Ob/Gyn residency graduates and hospitalist fellowship graduates with academic career interests.
  • Gynecologic surgical proficiency required. Robotic experience is not necessary.
