Full Time 40 hours Grade 000 Cardiac Surgery M&D



The University of Rochester Medical Center division of Cardiac Surgery seeks a full time BE/BC adult cardiac surgeon with experience in heart failure and valve surgery including TAVR. The ideal candidate will have 2-5 years of experience; new graduates will be considered. The successful candidate will join a group of 4 cardiac surgeons in a busy academic cardiac surgery program that offers the full spectrum of complex cardiac surgical care to patients from a catchment area that spans upstate and western NY as well as northern Pennsylvania.

The URMC Heart Center averages over 1000 surgical cases per year and includes a robust, multi-disciplinary heart failure program that has been a national leader and innovator in minimally invasive ventricular assist device implantation. There has been a fully accredited heart transplant program at URMC for several decades. The program is also a leader in minimally invasive valve surgery with almost 100% of valve cases done in this manner. URMC Cardiac Surgery supports an integrated 6-year cardiothoracic training program and has also trained many cardiac surgery residents in the traditional 5+2 model from the large General Surgery Training Program here. The program has a newly created dedicated 22 bed ICU fully staffed with a team of 7 cardiac critical care intensivists and 20 advance practice practitioners all of whom are employed by the division. There is a very robust percutaneous structural heart program (189 structural valves in 2020) with all cases directed by a cardiac surgeon and interventional cardiologist. All valve referrals are seen by a cardiac surgeon at the initial visit and a team-based approach has been key to our success.

The University of Rochester is a quaternary referral medical center with referrals from across the broad region of New York State with a dedicated, expert cardiac transport team via both air and ground. The Department of Surgery has outstanding research infrastructure for both basic/translation and outcomes research and the Division of Cardiac Surgery has a long and storied history of academic productivity and innovation in clinical care, education and research.

The U of R is located in Rochester, New York and is surrounded by world class culture, affordable housing and nationally ranked public schools.
