The University of Texas McGovern Medical School (UTMMS) Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, is recruiting for a general gastroenterologist for our clinical academic practice to help support the division’s growth and clinical expansion at Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital in North Houston. A 255-bed facility, Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital has been caring for families in the Lake Houston and Kingwood area for more than 30 years, offering world-class care close to home. Its affiliated doctors span a wide variety of disciplines. Additionally, Memorial Hermann Northeast serves as the official healthcare provider to passengers traveling through Houston’s George Bush International Airport.
UT Health’s Gastroenterology program at Memorial Hermann Northeast is a new venture. However, due to a very busy inpatient service and future, short-term plans to build a current outpatient practice, there is a great need to recruit additional skilled gastroenterologists that want to focus their career on building a robust clinical practice with a focus on quality, but also be involved in academics and research as well.
Position Key Accountabilities:
Duties and responsibilities will include overseeing a robust inpatient service, working in an outpatient clinic located on the Northeast campus, and outpatient endoscopy.
Candidates must have an MD/DO, be board certified or eligible in gastroenterology and be eligible for full medical licensure in Texas.
