Unlike any other academic department in the country, the Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery is comprised of physicians and scientists from a variety of disciplines focused on the treatment of lung disease including pulmonary and critical care medicine, allergy, thoracic surgery, lung transplant surgery, sleep medicine, diagnostic imaging and interventional thoracic radiology, pulmonary pathology and clinical and scientific research and medical education. This unique multi-disciplinary center provides synergy for cutting edge therapies and novel basic and clinical research and educational activities that span the continuum of medical and surgical care of patients with common to rare lung disorders.
Qualified candidates will be a MD, DO, or foreign equivalent with board-eligible or board certified in internal medicine. Candidates should also have a strong interest in pulmonary/cc medicine and possess academic credentials that will qualify for an academic appointment. Ability to obtain a medical license in the Commonwealth of PA prior to start date also required.
Located in the heart of an economically distressed and diverse urban area, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is acutely aware of the impact of the national systemic problems related to the lack of health equity and access to affordable, culturally responsive healthcare. In response, we will address issues to promote health equity through education, care delivery, workforce development, and research. We recognize that an environment enriched with persons from varied backgrounds working to address health disparity enhances scholarly work and the development of a culturally aware and responsive healthcare workforce.
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University values and embraces a diverse community reflected by individuals’ race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, language, national origin, religious affiliation, spiritual practice, mental and physical ability/disability, and age. In response to the needs of our local community and patient population, we will concentrate our recruitment and retention efforts on students, residents, and faculty who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/ Latino, and/or educationally and economically disadvantaged, while also being intentional in our efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for women and LGBT students, residents, faculty, and staff.
We are committed to achieving a climate of inclusion that respects and affirms diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We recognize that excellence in all aspects of education, training, research, and care delivery can only be achieved when all students, faculty, staff, community members and patients experience authentic connection and engagement; feel supported; and are encouraged to participate and contribute to creating health equity.
