Cardiothoracic Surgeon


The University of Rochester Medical Center, Division of Cardiac Surgery, is seeking to hire a full time BE/BC adult cardiac surgeon with experience in heart failure including LVAD, ECMO, and cardiac transplant. The ideal candidate will have 2-10 years of experience.  The successful candidate will join a group of 6 cardiac surgeons in a busy academic cardiac surgery program that offers the full spectrum of complex cardiac surgical care to patients from a catchment area that spans upstate and western NY as well as northern Pennsylvania.

 The URMC Heart Center averages over 1000 surgical cases per year and includes a robust, multi-disciplinary heart failure program that has been a national leader and innovator in minimally invasive ventricular assist device implantation. There has been a fully accredited heart transplant program at URMC for several decades.  The program is also a leader in minimally invasive valve surgery with almost 100% of valve cases done in this manner.  URMC Cardiac Surgery supports an integrated 6-year cardiothoracic training program and has also trained many cardiac surgery residents in the traditional 5+2 model from the large General Surgery Training Program here. The program has a newly created dedicated 22 bed ICU fully staffed with a team of 7 cardiac critical care intensivists and 20 advanced practice practitioners, all of whom are employed by the division.

 A 120-bed cardiac tower is currently under construction allowing for considerable physical space expansion.  There is a very robust percutaneous structural heart program (250 structural valves in 2023) with all cases directed by a cardiac surgeon and interventional cardiologist. All valve referrals are seen by a cardiac surgeon at the initial visit and a team-based approach has been key to our success.

The University of Rochester is a quaternary referral medical center with referrals from across the broad region of New York State with a dedicated, expert cardiac transport team via both air and ground. The Department of Surgery has outstanding research infrastructure for both basic/translation and outcomes research and the Division of Cardiac Surgery has a long and storied history of academic productivity and innovation in clinical care, education and research.  Two full time PhD researchers are currently on the faculty as well as 2 research fellows.

The U of R is located in Rochester, New York and is surrounded by world class culture, affordable housing and nationally ranked public schools.   The City of Rochester is a mecca for the arts: home to a philharmonic orchestra, wonderful museums including the Strong National Museum of Play, internationally recognized dance companies as well as The Eastman School of Music. The Rochester International Jazz Festival is one of the top 10 Jazz festivals in the nation. The region boasts access to great watersports both on Lake Ontario as well as the Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes region is also home to many internationally known wineries.   Rochester has a rich history and was the last step on the underground railroad and the place Frederick Douglas called home.  It is also the location of the Susan B. Anthony House making Rochester the epicenter of the woman’s suffrage movement.

Candidates must have completed medical school, having received an MD or equivalent, and completed a full surgical residency training program.  Candidates would join the faculty at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, commensurate with the candidate’s experience.  Must be eligible for a full NYS license.
