Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) announces an exceptional opportunity for a proven physician administrator and educator to serve as the founding Vice President for Medical Education and Designated Institutional Official. NGHS has been awarded $4.5 million in matching funds from the State to offset the up-front investment in program facilities, leadership, faculty and other resources to develop six new resident training programs: internal medicine, family medicine, general surgery, OB/GYN, psychiatry and emergency medicine. The program’s first medical residents are projected to arrive in 2019, with as many as 160 residents across six different specialties by 2024.
Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) is a not-for-profit community health system dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of more than 700,000 people in 13 counties across Northeast Georgia. The rapidly expanding system includes 600-inpatient beds at three hospital facilities, a mental health and substance abuse treatment center, a satellite cancer treatment center, outpatient imaging centers and multiple urgent care centers. The flagship hospital, Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), was rated by CareChex as Georgia’s #1 Hospital for the second consecutive year and #2 in the nation for Overall Hospital Care.
The Vice President of Medical Education (VP) will also serve as the Designated Institutional Official (DIO) for the System and the chief strategist for the curricular, operational and financial aspects of Medical Education for Northeast Georgia Health System. The successful candidate will collaborate with System leadership and physicians to establish a vision and objectives for resident education and continuing medical education that align with the strategic goals of the System. The VP/DIO will then translate that vision into concrete goals annually and direct the System to attain those objectives.
The successful candidate will demonstrate a minimum of five years of experience in Graduate Medical Education at the level of Program Director, Director of Medical Education or Designated Institutional Official (DIO) for an accredited residency or fellowship program. This individual will have established a reputation as an outstanding educator within a complex health system. Current board certification is required and an advanced degree in business or healthcare management is strongly preferred.
