The selected candidates will participate in or help to develop cross-specialty clinics (e.g., for dermato-rheumatology, dermato-oncology or occupational dermatology), and such experience is preferred. Applicants need to have demonstrated outstanding clinical practice delivering high quality, value-based, team-based outpatient care, as well as a high level of communication, collaboration and professionalism. Collaboration with other care providers is an essential component of this position. Examples include working with rheumatology faculty, fellows and internal medicine residents. In that there will on occasion be medical students, residents and fellows from our various Internal Medicine residency and fellowship programs rotating through our clinics or in need of dermatology didactic lectures, there will also be a small component of undergraduate and graduate medical education instruction.
