The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) is seeking an outstanding leader to become the next Chair of the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. The successful candidate will be widely respected and operationally savvy, highly knowledgeable of cutting-edge clinical care and innovative educational approaches, and able to grow a thriving research portfolio. The next Chair will also excel at managing complexity, leading effectively, and communicating through the tectonic changes occurring in academic medical centers. The Chair will provide leadership for the Department and its clinical, teaching, and research missions. The next Chair will foster excellence in patient care, education, research, and advocacy, while providing academic leadership for the faculty, learners, and staff. The Chair will be responsible for developing key relationships among constituents of the UTMB Health system, as well as championing and promoting faculty recruitment, retention, and development while leveraging the existing strengths of an already strong department. The Chair will provide stability and vision, creating a highly collaborative environment that promotes best practices and generates opportunities for continued growth of the faculty and, ultimately, the clinical and academic health enterprise at UTMB.

About UTMB: UTMB is one of the leading research-intensive academic health centers in the nation, opening in 1891 as the nation’s first public medical school and hospital under unified leadership. The oldest medical school in the Central and Southwest United States, the UTMB of today is a four campus, $2.1 billion modern health care system with 3,200 students, 900 faculty, and schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Health Professions, as well as a Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. UTMB is also home to the Galveston National Laboratory, one of only two laboratories conducting research on a university campus at the BSL-4 level in the U.S. Overall research funding has increased 20% over the past five years to $132 million and UTMB ranks 54th nationally in NIH funding among medical schools. UTMB also ranks as a five-star hospital by Vizient, one of 12 of 107 academic medical centers in the nation, for superior performance in providing high quality care. UTMB’s energy, momentum and optimism is palpable, fueled in part by its culture of collaboration and strengthened by its commitment to diversity. UTMB recently ranked #1 nationally for the number of underrepresented minorities graduating medical school and nearly 40% of the faculty belong to underrepresented groups.
