Rush University Medical Center is seeking a clinician teacher or clinician scientist to compliment an expanding academic practice in Chicago.
We are looking for applicants at the Assistant or Associate Professor Rank with a training and focused interest and training on GI oncology required. Our group currently is comprised of 9 clinician teachers, 5 clinician scientists, 1 MD/PhD, 6 PhDs, and 1 PsyD, all of whom have particular areas of interest which they have developed and honed. Our group is also complimented by multiple other lab personnel/study coordinators and has a strong nutrition presence. We collaborate closely, both clinically and in research, with other groups at the medical center, including: allergy/immunology, where we have established a novel GI/adverse reactions to food clinic, colorectal surgery and oncology, with whom we support a comprehensive clinic for gastrointestinal cancers, bariatric surgery, ENT, pathology, and neurology. We have particular expertise in inflammatory bowel disease, GI Oncology, functional bowel disease, celiac disease, chronobiology and motility.
Patients can receive care through the Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Clinic for Gastrointestinal Cancers, which brings together a team of doctors with specialized expertise in gastrointestinal cancers. New and second opinion patients meet with the team in a single visit to discuss diagnosis and treatment options. Rush University Cancer Center comprises all of the cancer-related clinical, research and educational efforts at Rush, crossing 20 departments, divisions and sections; inpatient and outpatient areas; professional clinical activities; and the colleges of Rush University. Faculty participates in teaching and mentoring residents, fellows and postdoctoral candidates.
Rush GI has consistently been recognized as a top program across the nation. We accept 3 fellows in training per year and also have an advanced therapeutic training program that accepts one 4th year fellow per year. Currently we cover two hospitals in our system (Rush University Medical Center and Rush Oak Park Hospital). There are also several free standing clinical sites with plans to expand our “footprint” with continued future development, including South Loop and Oak Brook. Finally, we have recently initiated an Institute for Inflammation, Microbiome and Chronobiology. This is an exciting time at Rush GI and we would like to recruit colleagues that will share our vision and enthusiasm.
