Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) announces an exceptional opportunity for a proven administrator educator to serve as the founding Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency. NGHS has been awarded $4.5 million in matching funds from the State to offset the up-front investment in program facilities, leadership, faculty and other resources to develop six new resident training programs: internal medicine, family medicine, general surgery, OB/GYN, psychiatry and emergency medicine. The program’s first medical residents are projected to arrive in 2019, with as many as 160 residents across six different specialties by 2024.
Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) is a not-for-profit community health system dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of more than 700,000 people in 13 counties across Northeast Georgia. The rapidly expanding system includes 600-inpatient beds at three hospital facilities, a mental health and substance abuse treatment center, a satellite cancer treatment center, outpatient imaging centers and multiple urgent care centers. The flagship hospital, Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), was rated by CareChex as Georgia’s #1 Hospital for the second consecutive year and #2 in the nation for Overall Hospital Care.
The successful candidate for the Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program will be a respected educator with excellent clinical, teaching and research credentials. Candidates must have demonstrated effective education and administrative abilities, understand the regulatory requirements for an academic residency program and enjoy the mentoring and development of residents, students and faculty. The founding Residency Director will be expected to establish robust teaching and academic functions for residents and faculty and support high quality, evidence-based internal medicine practices across the system.
Successful candidates will maintain current board certification in internal medicine and/or a related subspecialty area, with a minimum of seven years’ experience in an internal medicine teaching program. Prior experience as a Program Director or Associate Program Director is required. This individual will have established a reputation as an outstanding educator within a complex health system.
