The Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health seeks a dynamic and innovative surgeon to lead a new Division of Acute Care and Regional General Surgery. This is a rare opportunity for an accomplished and visionary leader to transition an existing group of general and acute care surgeons within the Division of General Surgery into a distinct division with direct reporting to the Department Chair. The Department of Surgery consists of more than 120 faculty across seven specialty divisions (Cardiothoracic, General, Otolaryngology, Pediatric, Plastic and Reconstructive, Transplant, and Vascular) performing more than 25,000 operations annually. Operative services are provided at seven locations in Madison and four locations in Rockford, IL. The Department also trains more than 70 residents and fellows and is consistently ranked amongst the top surgery programs with extramural research funding.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
