Faculty Attending Physician position available in the Division of Palliative Care. We are an expanding team with a busy inpatient consultation service and outpatient clinic. Our team consists of a medical director, nurse manager, 2 APNs and an LCSW. We also share a clinical pharmacist, and have very close pastoral care involvement. Our service has been in existence for about 4 years, we are a well accepted part of the hospital culture. Our main site is in Paterson, a large urban academic medical center - and we also serve a much smaller sister hospital in a near by community. We also run an outpatient clinic. Our division has active research projects going on, with ample publishing opportunity. This year we are presenting abstracts at 2 national conferences. A faculty appointment is available through the New York Medical College. 3rd year internal and family medicine residents rotate with us, as well as seminarians from pastoral care. There is plenty of opportunity for teaching. We run "wellness rounds" weekly with inspirational reading, followed by sharing and meditation that is open to anyone in the hospital. Consider joining our team!! We would welcome you!! Fellowship training preferred, ED doc friendly.
