The Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine Division at Washington University School of Medicine is recruiting qualified BC/BE intensivists with career interests in critical care medicine. We are a multidisciplinary intensivist group and are seeking intensivists with training in Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine, or Emergency Medicine.
This is an unique opportunity to join clinical and academic intensivists in the Surgical ICU, Cardiovascular ICU, regional hospital ICUs and/or TeleICU center. For anesthesiology-trained physicians, both cardiothoracic and general operating room opportunities are available. Our various practice settings include training and education of our residents and fellows, while some settings have a more clinical, non-teaching focus. Clinical responsibilities include working within a critical care team model comprised of residents, fellows, Acute Care Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants, or providing critical care as a solo clinician. Specific responsibilities can be tailored to each applicant’s interests and training experience. Clinical time would also be spent providing eICU intensivist services at the in-house TeleICU Program supporting critical care patients across academic, community and critical access hospital ICUs.
