Summary of Position

The Lewis Katz School of Medicine is seeking a BC/BE internist to join the Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery in the role of nighttime hospitalist. Although an ideal opportunity for Internists looking to pursue thoracic medicine specialization in the near future, this interest and/or additional training is neither required nor expected.

This unique multi-disciplinary center provides synergy for cutting edge therapies and novel basic and clinical research, as well as educational activities that span the continuum of medical and surgical care of patients with common to rare lung disorders.


In addition to a highly competitive salary and a comprehensive suite of benefits – including a generous 403b retirement match, health, dental, vision, life, malpractice, CME, a Tuition Remission Program and more – the position offers a uniquely supportive practice environment strengthened by Temple’s mission-driven culture to provide and promote world class, equitable patient care, medical education and research.
