UT Health San Antonio Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine

UT Health Multispecialty & Research Hospital (MSRH)

Open Rank Palliative Care, Medical Director - GGPM

The Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology and Palliative Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio invites applications for a faculty position as a Medical Director of Palliative Care at the new Multispecialty Research Hospital.

The Medical Director will provide oversight for services at the brand new Multispecialty Research Hospital with estimated completion of November, 2024. The Division will have the opportunity to employ someone sooner at the current clinical sites while we await the opening of MSRH, which will allow successful candidates to familiarize with the teams, learners and academic environment. The envisioned supportive care team for the new MSRH hospital will include physicians, nurse practitioners, a social worker, one behavioral health professional and a chaplain. Pharmacy and dietary services will also be available.

Viability of recruitment: The division is hiring due to growth/expansion in order to support the need for a palliative consult service at MSRH.

Minimum Requirements: Board Certified or Board eligible in Palliative Medicine.

Practice structure: Ideally, there will be one inpatient and one outpatient provider covering MSRH during the week. The inpatient service line provides coverage from 9AM-5PM. On weekdays, this is performed in-house and on nights and weekends the service is provided by call coverage on an as needed basis. The outpatient service would be covered on weekdays, providing comprehensive symptom management to patients from oncology referrals and hospital discharges among other sources.

Academic responsibilities include attending to the board of regents rules, policies and procedures. Academic productivity and advancement will be strongly encouraged through mentorship and opportunities in the areas of clinical excellence, research and administrative leadership.
