Massachusetts General Hospital, a major Boston teaching hospital and an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, seeks a Division Chief to lead the Obstetric Anesthesia Division of the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine (DACCPM).

The Division of Obstetric Anesthesia is comprised of 23 faculty who specialize in high-risk pregnancies and offer specialized maternal fetal medicine and neonatal care. Through coordinated efforts of a multidisciplinary team of anesthesia providers, obstetricians, perinatologists, midwives, neonatologists and nurses, this service supported approximately
3,800 births this past year.

Working closely with the Department Chair and Vice Chairs, the Division Chief will provide strategic direction and oversight for all Obstetric Anesthesia clinical practice, education, research, and community outreach. As Division Chief, this individual will also serve as a departmental and institutional leader within their clinical area of responsibility and represent the DACCPM at various local, regional, national and international forums.

Also, the Division Chief will build and strengthen existing collaborative relationships with both internal and external constituents.

Therefore, the position requires an outstanding clinician who is a distinguished leader in Obstetric Anesthesia and an exemplary teacher, with a background and accomplishments in research. Experience in administration, including clinical and personnel oversight highly preferred.
