Beaumont Health System: Thoracic Surgeon

Beaumont Health is seeking a junior to mid-career BE/BC thoracic surgeon to add to their existing staff in Southeast Michigan. The thoracic surgical team is the largest in the Greater Detroit region and has a longstanding history of excellence in the community. Ideal candidates will possess excellent technical and interpersonal skills combined with sound clinical judgment.  A subspecialty interest that will add to the expertise of the faculty is desirable. The group’s outstanding collegiality and teamwork provide an ideal environment to nurture a thoracic surgeon through the steep ascent of their early professional learning curve.  The vision is to grow the busy practice while optimizing care delivery across the system.  The new surgeon will be expected to provide services at two primary hospitals, one a tertiary hub and the other a smaller, community-based hospital, each staffed by additional surgeons who can provide cross-coverage and assistance.  The System Chief of Thoracic Surgery has a clinical presence at all the hospitals and is available for mentorship, consultation and support as well. The new associate will be expected to help develop the referral base and strengthen community ties with the goal of unparalleled delivery of care through teamwork, collaboration, and innovation. The group also desires to grow their national and international academic presence through publications, presentations, and involvement in professional societies and committees. 

Beaumont Thoracic Surgery currently is comprised of 5 board-certified general thoracic surgeons who are dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to the thoracic surgical patient. The team has expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant diseases of the lungs, esophagus, mediastinum, and chest wall, utilizing cutting edge minimally invasive techniques, including robotics. The team also has expertise in the full array of endoscopic and bronchoscopic procedures including endoscopic mucosal resection, ablation, dilation, stenting, POEM, EBUS, and navigational bronchoscopy (including the use of robotic navigational platforms.)  

Beaumont Health is Michigan’s largest not-for-profit health care system, formed in 2014. It is comprised of eight hospitals, 145 outpatient locations, nearly 5,000 physicians and more than 38,000 employees.  It is affiliated with Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Wayne State University School of Medicine. Three general surgery residency programs across the system provide support to the thoracic surgical service at its various locations.  There are over 900 residents and fellows in 94 programs system wide.  Faculty appointments are available. The team also benefits from the services of multiple Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), including Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners.
