The Department of Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation at University of Massachusetts Medical School is seeking a BE/BC Orthopedic Surgeon with trauma fellowship training to join the Adult Orthopedic trauma service.

The chosen candidate will receive a highly competitive compensation/benefits package with compensation incentivized to benefit productive clinicians. Academic appointment will be commensurate with credentials and experience.

This position offers Trauma surgeons an extraordinary opportunity to work in a nationally recognized, state of the art, high-volume practice in our ACS certified Level 1 Trauma Center for adults and children. The trauma team is undergoing a significant overhaul providing a unique opportunity to join a redesigned modern comprehensive service staffed with fellowship trained traumatologists. Our University campus is a specifically designed level one trauma center with our elective service on another site. Our facilities include new, state of the art operating rooms with all appropriate specialties on site, an Emergency Department built to accommodate over 100,000 patient visits per year, comprehensive imaging facilities and a life flight service based at the hospital. The clinical service is very busy with a larger volume of high energy blunt trauma than other more urban sites. Overall, the applicant will be expected to be a team player committed to help develop the service in the longer term. It will be expected that he/ she will be comfortable with the whole spectrum of modern surgical practice relating to orthopedic traumatology and its complications, including the related use of arthroplasty and should offer an additional interest compatible with the development of the service and department.
