Additional Information

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center (UHCMC), under the leadership of our new Chair Dr. Stephanie Teal, is seeking an excellent candidate to join our Maternal Fetal Medicine division as Director of Reproductive Genetics. Appointments and clinical opportunities are available in either or both Genetics and MFM. Faculty at UHCMC have academic appointments at Case Western Reserve University at the level of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor commensurate with experience. Ample opportunities exist for basic science and clinical research.  

Qualifications:
·         Board-certified or Board-eligible in Maternal Fetal Medicine and Genetics ·         Active Ohio Medical License in good standing upon effective date of employment
·         Experience in prenatal diagnosis and ultrasound
·         Experience in teaching medical students, residents and MFM fellows  

Our freestanding women’s hospital, MacDonald Women’s, is immediately adjacent to Rainbow Babies and Children’s, one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals with comprehensive pediatric subspecialties and a top ranked NICU. Both hospitals are themselves within the larger UHCMC campus, which is in turn located in Cleveland’s “University Circle” with museums, the symphony and CWRU. MacDonald Women’s houses outpatient offices, an ultrasound unit and actively funded research laboratories (Sam Mesiano, PhD) as well as our inpatient services with 3800+ annual deliveries. A high volume L+D unit in immediate proximity to a top children’s hospital is ideal for the management of complex fetal pathology and multidisciplinary academic endeavors.    

Our MFM division consists of ten members and draws referrals from six regional L+D units in the University Hospitals Health System (UHHS). We have a combined fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine with Metro Health and are a NICHD MFMU trial network satellite site.  

The Center for Human Genetics (CHG) provides all of the clinical genetics services for UHHS. These clinical services include Pediatric General Genetics; Pediatric Metabolic Genetics; Adult General Genetics; Cancer Genetics; and Prenatal Genetics. We currently have eight physicians and ten Genetic Counselors. The Center is involved in government (NIH, FDA), industry-funded research, and clinical trials, including Urea Cycle Defects, and urea cycle gene therapy. The CHG is an essential component that bridges both basic science and clinical components to allow the Department to be leaders at the SOM and UHHS in the translation of human genetic discoveries obtained from basic science inquiry into clinical practice.   
Our current Director of Genetics, Dr. Jane Corteville, has enjoyed a long and successful career at our institution. Although an ideal candidate would be mid-career; mentorship, leadership training and a graduated transfer of responsibilities would be available for a recent fellowship graduate.  

Cleveland offers excellent schools and low cost of living along with something for everyone: The Cavilers, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie shoreline, Cleveland Orchestra and “Iron Chef” Michael Symon. Salaries and rank commensurate with experience.
