The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the MetroHealth System, Case Western Reserve University is seeking applications for a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Subspecialist to expand to a seven-member division.  

The Department offers OB/Gyn specialty and subspecialty services at several sites across the MetroHealth System. We are seeking a clinically oriented physician who will practice at one or more of our clinical sites and will participate in fellow, resident, and medical student education. A successful candidate will possess excellent interpersonal and teaching skills, will be Board Certified or a candidate for Certification in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and eligible for licensure in the State of Ohio. This position is anticipated to be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the Department of Reproductive Biology at Case Western Reserve University. We are actively involved in the education of Case Western Reserve University medical students, MetroHealth’s Ob/Gyn residents, and the CWRU Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellows. Academic rank and dedicated research time will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.  

The Division’s ongoing funded research includes studies regarding hypertension, preterm birth prediction and prevention, perineal injury, and evaluation and implementation of quality of care measures. The MetroHealth System is a funded Clinical Center within the Eunice Kennedy Shriver NICHD-MFMU (Jennifer Bailit, MD, MPH - PI) and the NuMoM2b-HHS2 (Brian Mercer, M.D. - PI) Research Networks. Our perinatal database is the oldest ongoing electronic database in the country – extending back to 1974. Our electronic Medical Record extends back to 2000. Each of these provides significant opportunity for research addressing pregnancy complications, generational impacts of health disparities and social determinants of health. The Case Western Reserve University CTSA-Clinical Research Unit is located adjacent to our L&D and NICU suites, offering support for clinical and bench research. The MetroHealth Systems also supports the Institute for Population Health, a robust informatics department, 47 residency or fellowship programs and is a Level I trauma center.

The MetroHealth System is a safety-net hospital for Cuyahoga County, Ohio.  The population we serve is diverse, both socially and economically and has high rates of pregnancy complications. Our faculty is committed to caring for all, and to improving the health of our whole community. Currently, The MetroHealth System is in the middle of an innovative campus transformation. This is a billion-dollar commitment to support the needs of our at-risk population and community by incorporating low-cost and senior citizen housing, a community resource center, nutritional support, public internet access and parks within the MetroHealth Systems Campus. Opening in 2022, the new hospital tower will include 270 state-of-the art private rooms and new Labor and Delivery and NICU suites. By the end of 2024, our main campus outpatient services will be housed in a new facility adjacent to the hospital. We invite you to be our partner in this important journey as we strive to transform health care in Northeast Ohio.
