This position offers Trauma surgeons an extraordinary opportunity to work in a nationally recognized state of the art, high-volume practice in our ACS certified Level 1 Trauma Center for adults and children. The trauma team is undergoing a significant overhaul providing a unique opportunity to join a redesigned modern comprehensive service staffed with fellowship trained traumatologists. Our University campus is a well-designed level one trauma center with the majority of elective surgery on another site. Our facilities include new, state of the art operating rooms with all appropriate specialties on site, an Emergency Department built to accommodate over 100,000 patient visits per year, comprehensive imaging facilities and a life flight service based at the hospital.

It will be expected that he/ she will be comfortable with the whole spectrum of modern surgical practice relating to orthopedic traumatology and its complications, including the related use of arthroplasty and may offer an additional interest if compatible with the development of the service and department.
