Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Lubbock, TX, United States
May 11, 2021
Position Description Contributes to the university's mission through teaching, research and service, some variation by academic unit. Major/Essential Functions The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is seeking a board certified or board eligible OB/GYN Specialist for a full-time faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The physician will work full-time at Covenant Hospital, one of our teaching hospitals. The job is closer to a private practice than an academic position, because the individual will see patients in the clinic, deliver and perform surgery on his or her own patients. Medical students are assigned to Covenant throughout the year and an upper level OB-GYN resident will rotate at Covenant on a monthly basis, so teaching will be an important aspect of this position. The physician will be assigned call coverage with the Covenant Medical Group (average once a week or less), but this does not require that the physician be in the hospital. Covenant Hospital has a full time laborist (OB-GYN hospitalist) program that provides emergency coverage. Lubbock is a family friendly community offering a mild climate, low cost of living, and high-quality public and private schools. Geographically located on the South Plains of Texas, Lubbock is conveniently located to major metropolitan cities like Dallas and Houston and just a short drive to ski resorts in New Mexico and Colorado. Lubbock and its surrounding communities comprise a population of nearly a quarter of a million year-round residents. With multiple universities and professional schools, there are diverse entertainment and leisure opportunities to accommodate any tastes. Required Qualifications MD degree required.
