    Responsibilities

    The VA Ann Arbor Health System (VAAAHS) in partnership with our academic affiliate, the University of Michigan (Michigan Medicine), seeks to recruit a Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist reporting under General Cardiology. The physician chosen will play an integral role in the management, growth, and future direction of Cardiac Electrophysiology at our growing 1B VAMC facility. The selectee will build on the existing strengths and commitment to service excellence, high quality Veteran care, education, and scholarly endeavors in an environment that underscores a respect for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Responsibilities will include promoting and conducting high-quality patient-centric clinical care including lab-based and inpatient and outpatient consultation, mentoring trainees, mid-level providers, and junior faculty, developing an outstanding educational experience for learners of all levels, and conducting scholarly research and quality improvement. A robust ACGME-accredited fellowship training program in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and General Cardiology provides ample teaching opportunities.

    The VAAAHS has strong funded programs in health services research, health care disparities, clinical trials, and basic science. Collaboration with Cardiac Electrophysiology faculty or other investigators at the VAAAHS or Michigan Medicine is available. Protected time for clinical or basic research can be supported based on interest, previous work, and funding. The Physician will report under the Medicine Service at the VAAAHS and will have an academic appointment at Michigan Medicine, which may include additional clinical, teaching, research, and administrative responsibilities. The division of time between the two medical centers is negotiable. Applicants must have an MD or equivalent degree and must be ABIM Board eligible / certified in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiology. Previous VA experience is a strong plus. The appropriate candidate will have experience and training supporting requirements for an academic appointment at an early-career or higher level.
