Boston Medical Center (BMC) and Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine are jointly recruiting a faculty member in the Sections of Acute Care and Trauma Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, who will lead the Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Program at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center (SEMC). BMC and SEMC, a Boston University teaching hospital, are developing a trauma program to meet the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma Level II verification.

The Chief of Trauma at SEMC will be a full faculty member of the Department of Surgery and the Boston University Medical Group, led by the Chair and Surgeon-in-Chief at the Chobanian & Avedisian School/BMC, and will clinically report to the Chief of Surgery at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, with robust collaborative relationships with the BMC Trauma program. The ideal candidate will be dedicated to the development and maintenance of an ACS Level II trauma program, will be ABS board certified in surgery, have completed a fellowship in trauma critical care surgery, and have experience as a leader in a trauma program. The successful candidate will have strong clinical credentials, a collaborative approach to patient care, and a track record of exemplary teaching and scholarly activity.

BMC is a 514-bed academic medical center located in Boston’s historic South End. The largest safety-net hospital in New England, BMC provides consistently excellent and accessible health care to all. BMC is the primary teaching affiliate of the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, a highly ranked medical school dedicated to urban and international health and a recognized leader in groundbreaking medical research. St. Elizabeth’s Hospital is a 308-bed hospital with a long history in Boston and is the flagship for the Steward Hospital System in Massachusetts, and as of 2021 has been designated as a teaching hospital for the Chobanian & Avedisian School.

Required Skills

BMC has earned verification from the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 adult trauma center and a Level 2 pediatric center. The BMC Trauma Center has a reputation as one of the country’s finest, and also has the distinction of being the longest continuously verified Level I trauma program in the city of Boston. The trauma centers at BMC and St. Elizabeth’s will work in close partnership.

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
