In partnership with the UC Health academic healthcare system and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, College of Medicine’s doctors are transforming the world of medicine every day. The Department of General Internal Medicine is a top-tier department with world-renowned faculty and staff. With world-class research, teaching and medical practice opportunities, why not choose the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine?


The Section of Hospital Medicine is seeking a BC/BE Internal Medicine physician to provide care on a Hospital Medicine ward service and on the Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) service at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Job Summary/Duties:  The BMT Hospitalist will provide the nocturnist coverage of the Hem/Onc service during 12 hour night shifts.

The responsibilities include clinical, research and teaching activities of the students, residents and fellows.


Schedule:  The 12-hour BMT night shifts are typically scheduled in 1-week blocks (i.e., one week on, one week off).  With full staffing, coverage will include 13 weeks of nights on the BMT service, and 11 weeks of days on a variety of the traditional Hospital Medicine service roles.  Hospital Medicine faculty who have mostly daytime roles are expected to contribute 182 clinical shifts.  BMT night shifts carry a premium toward overall shift count, therefore for this position, the annual expectation of all shifts is a total of 164.
