Cardiac Surgeons

The Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is recruiting two Cardiac Surgeons to join the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Our first opportunity is for a mid-career or senior Cardiac Surgeon at Associate Professor or Professor rank (both tenure and Clinical Health Sciences/non-tenure tracks available) with demonstrated expertise in heart failure and heart implantation.  The selected candidate will serve as the surgical leader of our heart failure and heart transplant programs. Close collaboration with heart failure cardiology in a multidisciplinary program is expected.  The applicant should meet UNOS requirements to direct the heart transplant program. 

Our second opportunity is for a junior or mid-career broad-based Cardiac Surgeon at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor rank (both tenure and Clinical Health Sciences/non-tenure tracks available). Successful candidates will have specialty experience in coronary artery bypass surgery, beating heart surgery, aortic and mitral valve surgery, surgery for end-stage heart disease, heart transplantation, mechanical assist devices, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, cardiac arrhythmia surgery, robotic cardiac surgery, and pericardiectomy. Clinical duties include provision of care to cardiothoracic surgery patients at the University Hospital as well as at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital.

Successful candidates for both roles will have an MD or equivalent, have completed an accredited cardiothoracic fellowship, be certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery or equivalent, and be eligible for a Wisconsin medical license. We are seeking dynamic, innovative individuals who have the leadership and vision to contribute to the growth and success of a robust academic cardiac surgery program. Successful applicants must have a demonstrated interest in clinical practice, research, education and training. 

There is an excellent research infrastructure in place at the University of Wisconsin, which includes strong support for basic science research, and excellent opportunities to collaborate with a robust clinical outcomes group in the Department of Surgery. The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery currently consists of eight faculty members offering a full array of complex and high acuity procedures including heart and lung transplantation, ventricular assist devices, congenital and pediatric heart surgery, general and oncologic thoracic surgery and ECMO. There is a well-established residency training program and the incumbent will be expected to teach those residents in surgical education.  

Madison is the state capital, situated on scenic lakes, home to Epic Systems, and is frequently cited as one of the best cities in which to live. It offers an excellent environment for families, and a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities. A competitive salary and fringe benefit package is provided, as well as generous institutional and academic support.
