Description:

The Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care at The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School in conjunction with the Dell Seton Medical Center are recruiting a Urologic Oncologist with fellowship training to join our team as an Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek individuals with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, potential for scholarly contributions, and commitment to excellence in diversity and inclusion.

As part of The University of Texas at Austin, one of the nation’s leading research universities, the Dell Medical School pursues innovation in the redesign of healthcare delivery, excellence in healthcare research, and programs in interdisciplinary and inter-professional education. It is the fifth medical school in the UT System and the first medical school established in nearly five decades by a member of the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading public and private research universities. An extraordinary commitment of resources, both public and private, has already been made to enable the development and success of the Dell Medical School. The School is partnering closely with the community and regional healthcare providers and payers to provide new models for health promotion, healthcare delivery, and clinical care for the community’s underserved population. The Dell Medical School is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to diversity and excellence within the learning health system.

The Assistant/Associate Professor will be an integral part of the rapidly expanding urology practice. The current urologic service at Dell Medical School is composed of a specialist in minimally invasive surgery/endourology and a specialist in reconstructive urology. There is a large, unmet need for complex urologic cancer in our system. The individual should have interest in designing and implementing an integrated urologic oncology program from the ground up by partnering with community practitioners, urologists, and oncologists. Of note, the Department is committed to oncologic care, with three fellowship-trained surgical oncologists on primary faculty who will be available for collaboration.
