Medical Director of Lung Transplantation
The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at Northwell Health is seeking a lung transplant pulmonologist to serve as Medical Director of Lung Transplantation. Prior experience in management of lung transplant patients in an established lung transplant program is required. Board certification in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is required; completion of a lung transplant fellowship program is desired.
The Medical Director will contribute to development of a new lung transplant program in collaboration with the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery to be based at North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, NY. Northwell Health has established programs in renal, liver, and cardiac transplantation. Initial administrative duties of the Medical Director of Lung Transplantation will focus on development of the lung transplant program in conjunction with our cardiac and lung transplant surgeon and will include recruitment of additional support faculty and staff. Clinical duties will focus on the care of lung transplant patients, including initial evaluation, peri-transplant care, and post-transplant management.
The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine has over 35 faculty members with active subspecialty programs in Interstitial Lung Disease, Pulmonary Hypertension, Cystic Fibrosis, Interventional Pulmonology, as well as an Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Program for acute lung injury/ARDS, among other subspecialty areas of expertise. The position includes opportunities for educational activities with trainees including Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellows, residents, and medical students as well as the opportunity to pursue translational research in lung transplantation. While the lung transplant program will be based at North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, NY, it will be an important component of the Northwell Health pulmonary and critical care service line, which combines the resources of four tertiary care hospitals, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Lenox Hill Hospital, South Shore University Hospital, and Staten Island University Hospital. The program will also serve as a referral resource for other Northwell Health hospitals.
