Job Description:

You Belong Here

Join the University of Florida Department of Anesthesiology, a distinguished top 5 public university and integral part of UF Health, situated in the sunny and vibrant city of Gainesville, FL. We are thrilled to invite passionate and accomplished academic faculty to become part of our esteemed team.

The Opportunity

As a faculty member, you will have the opportunity to shape the future of anesthesiology and perioperative medicine through education, research, and groundbreaking discoveries. Join our community of excellence, working side by side with 85 faculty anesthesiologists, 9 active research faculty, 88 residents, 25 fellows, 75 CRNA/AAs, and a dedicated team of 40+ support and administrative staff. Together, we foster an environment that encourages innovation and collaboration.

Your clinical skills and expertise will play a pivotal role in providing outstanding patient care at UF Health's premier facilities, including UF Health Shands Hospital, Shands Children's Hospital, and Shands Cancer Hospital. You will be at the forefront of medical advancements, serving in service areas that encompass our Level I Trauma Center, High-risk OB, Comprehensive Stroke Center, Level 4 NICU, Congenital Heart Center, Solid Organ Transplantation, and Cancer Center.

Members of the Liver and Transplant division provide safe, high-quality care for all transplantation candidates which includes their pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative stages of care. The division cares for patients with the highest levels of acuity affording an excellent educational opportunity for our outstanding residents.

Our liver program ranked among the highest in the nation by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) performing 141 liver transplants from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023 and looking to surpass that number this year. The liver transplant program was No. 1 in the country, outstripping 149 other programs with a patient survival rate greater than 99% — an accomplishment that has never occurred for a program of our size. Our short-term and long-term survival outcomes reflect our commitment to seeing patients thrive beyond their initial transplant. While other centers may follow a liver transplant patient for several months after surgery, at UF Health, we follow our patients for life.

Whether you are seeking a tenure or non-tenure track position, we have exciting opportunities for you. Full-time physicians are encouraged to join us, and we also offer part-time opportunities to cater to diverse needs.
