Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University - Chair, Family Medicine

RI, Providence

Providence, RI – The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the Care New England (CNE) Health System are pleased to announce the search for the Chair/Chief Department of Family Medicine. This is a tremendous opportunity for a physician leader to help advance and shape the academic, clinical, and research activities of the Department and to positively impact the health of patients, families, and communities throughout the state of Rhode Island.

Over the last forty-five years, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University has become a national leader in medical education, clinical practice, and biomedical research, and the Department of Family Medicine, founded in 1978, has been growing and developing with it. The Warren Alpert Medical School is a component of Brown’s Division of Biology and Medicine and together with Brown’s seven affiliated teaching hospitals, the collective research enterprise in the life and health sciences attracts over $225 million in sponsored research funding per year. In addition, it is ranked by US News and World Report as the 19th best medical school for primary care in the country.

Jointly reporting to the Dean of Medicine and Biological Sciences and the President and CEO of Care New England Health System, the Chair will join this highly ranked department with a vibrant statewide presence and an engaged and nurturing faculty with interests including global health, maternal-child health, reproductive health, LGBTQ health, population health, and sports medicine. The department has a top national two-site residency with 48 residents (the largest in the Northeast) and outstanding fellowship programs in global health and maternal-child health.

The next Chair will be a nationally recognized leader with experience working in an academic medical center environment in a position of senior responsibility, clinical service and administration, a demonstrated record of excellence in scholarship with prior success in attracting extramural peer-reviewed and/or industry research funding, and will be committed to recruiting and training a diverse workforce of family physicians and other providers that mirror the communities served. The individual will be expected to plan, manage and implement academic programs that foster the professional and scholarly growth of the faculty of the Department of Family Medicine while at the same time, demonstrating entrepreneurialism, innovation, and creative thinking in oversight of the clinical enterprise. This individual will have an opportunity to engage in advocacy and shape community-based service using Family Medicine as a strong platform from which to base operations.

This is an exceptionally dynamic, exciting, and complex work environment with all the makings for the continued pursuit of excellence and long-term success and the capacity to foster the growth and development of leaders in the field of primary care for decades to come. Candidates must hold the degree of MD or DO, MD/MPH, DO/MPH, MD/PhD, or DO/PhD, be Board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, and possess qualifications for appointment at the associate professor or professor rank at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
