From Dr. Garg: Columbia Staffing
I am the new Chair at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, LA, recruited here to build an academic department. Things are really taking off with gusto as there was already a really fantastic group of faculty physicians in place; we are a tertiary referral site for a large network of hospitals and see ~70,000+ patient visits/year through our ED; we are already in our second year of our EM residency and the institution has ~30 residency/fellowship programs in total (robust GME presence); and we are the home of the UQ-Ochsner Clinical School (our medical students spend the first two years at University of Queensland and the final two years here with us). We have set our foundation, and now we are working on adding depth to our niches and adding an Associate/Assistant Residency Program Director. It is a really exciting time of growth here. I have a passion for education (was the Vice Chair for Education / Residency Program Director at Vanderbilt before taking on this new opportunity). So, if you have any faculty who are also passionate about resident/fellow education and looking for a really great new opportunity, please send them my way. Posting is below and attached as well for a more formal description.
Former Columbia APD and now Baylor PD Aleksandr “Sasha” Tichter posted that “Baylor College of Medicine in sunny Houston, TX has openings for full-time faculty of all academic ranks to join our growing department.”
