Cleveland Clinic Akron General is seeking board certified/eligible physicians to join our Department of Medicine Core Teaching Faculty in Akron. The Internal Medicine Residency Program Core Faculty at the Internal Medicine Center of Akron at Cleveland Clinic Akron General provides an opportunity to practice high quality medicine in both the inpatient and outpatient setting at a large teaching hospital. The Internal Medicine Center of Akron (IMCA) has trained our Internal Medicine residents for more than 45 years.

IMCA faculty participate in resident selection, orientation, evaluation, and remediation; curriculum development; program evaluation, accreditation, and improvement; supervision and mentoring of our Internal Medicine Residents. Faculty members are a foundational element of graduate medical education - faculty members teach residents how to care for patients. They provide an important bridge allowing residents to grow and become practice-ready, ensuring their patients receive the highest quality of care. They are role models for future generations of physicians by demonstrating compassion, commitment to excellence in teaching and patient care, professionalism, and a dedication to lifelong learning. Faculty members experience the pride of fostering the growth and development of future colleagues. Our training focuses on clinical competence, career development and the wellbeing of our residents.

IMCA core faculty primarily see patients in the outpatient setting, but rotate in the inpatient setting alongside our hospitalist colleagues allowing for a "hybrid" role to provide continuity of care utilizing the Epic™ electronic health record and are focused on quality improvement, population health and innovation in care delivery. Our interprofessional care team within IMCA allow for collaboration with Geriatricians, Pharm Ds, Behavioral Health Social Workers, RN and LPNs. The care our faculty provides is enhanced by the opportunity to teach in a community teaching hospital setting with affiliation to Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) and Ohio University Heritage College of Medicine (OUHCOM). IMCA faculty can hold faculty appointments at both of our medical schools.

Outstanding benefits with minimal call. Robust resources for professional development including leadership, education, and management tracks as well as a formal coaching and mentoring program available for physicians. Tail coverage provided.
