    Job Description

    We have built an outstanding team of hospitalists over the past 15 years, and we are continuing to grow.  We currently have daytime and nocturnist positions available in the Hospital Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Our hospitalists are all internal medicine trained/boarded; no specific training in medical oncology is required.  The primary focus is coverage of the inpatient medical service at Memorial Hospital, the main clinical site of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.


    Daytime hospitalist responsibilities include:

    • Leading an inpatient team with primary responsibility for the care of hospitalized patients, overseeing housestaff, medical students, and/or APPs
    • Ample protected non-clinical time to pursue academic areas of interest

    Nocturnist responsibilities include:

    • Admitting patients to the medical service and providing some cross-coverage
    • Supervising and teaching housestaff and APPs
    • 7 PM to 7 AM shifts with flexible scheduling

    Both positions include opportunities to participate in teaching, quality improvement projects, research, and other academic opportunities in line with the individual’s strengths and passions.


    Our ideal candidate will have: outstanding acute clinical skills; ability to work well within a multi-disciplinary team; superior communication skills; and board certification/eligibility in internal medicine.  There is excellent growth potential for a candidate who seeks a fulfilling career in academic hospital medicine.  The nocturnist position is also appropriate for candidates seeking to fill a “gap year.”


    Interested candidates should upload a CV with bibligraphy, cover letter stating interess and names/contact of three references.
