We seek academic geriatricians interested in acute care, including one to direct our care across settings. The Division's 2 dozen faculty provide vertically-integrated care across the care spectrum: our own hospitalist services, ambulatory practices, home care, PACE, rehab, and SNFs. A major part of our mission is development of innovative care models. Thus, we are not only gerontifying acute care but also using a systems approach to operationalize and embed such precepts across our hospitals. We are looking for colleagues who are both excited by that vision and have the passion to address the challenge. We are also interested in a more senior geriatrician to lead part or all of the Division's extensive clinical activities. In addition to the diversity of settings, these efforts encompass state-of-the-art primary and consultative care, as well as subspecialty care led by geriatricians who are also trained in other specialties. In addition, because Pitt has one of the nation's largest research portfolio in agingwhile UPMC comprises the nation's largest integrated academic healthcare systemwe are uniquely positioned to evaluate such innovative models in each setting. Ample teaching opportunities are also possible. Pittsburgh has been selected as America's most livable city, best arts city, and best out-door city.
