Director of the Glaucoma Service

The Department of Ophthalmology, the Loyola University Health System (LUHS) and the Stritch School of Medicine (SSOM), in conjunction with the Hines Veterans Administration Hospital (HVA) are actively recruiting for a full-time position of Director of the Glaucoma Service. Strong interpersonal skills, a commitment to provide outstanding clinical care and a dedication to teaching residents and medical students are sought. Board certification and eligibility for licensing in Illinois are expected. The position will be available after May 1, 2015.

The Department of Ophthalmology has 16 full-time, and 16 part-time clinical faculty and 4 research faculty with a strong focus on glaucoma. The residency program trains 4 residents per year. With no subspecialty fellows, we provide a supportive environment for rigorous clinical and surgical training for our residents. Between Loyola (Loyola Outpatient Center and 3 satellite offices) and the HVA, there are approximately 65,000 patient visits per year.

In 2010, LUHS merged with Trinity Health which then merged 2 years later with Catholic Health East to form the the third-largest non-profit health system in the US (85 hospitals). LUHS now serves as the flagship academic medical center. The Glaucoma Director would have patient record access for substantial clinical and population health research. Clinical information will be available from four large databases: 1) 2.1 million patients in the LUHS EMR; 2) 15 million patients from CHE-Trinity network; 3) VA Information Resource Cencer (VIReC); and 4) CAPriCORN, the Chicago Area Patient Centered Outcomes Research Network, a PCORI-funded Clinical Data Research Network from 6 academic health centers and 2 VA hospitals in the Chicagoland Area.

Finally, LUHS and Loyola University Chicago (LUC) are in the process of constructing a 200,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE). Scheduled to open in April 2016, this on-campus facility will facilitate interactive collaborations between basic, clinical, health services, population and public health scientists.

The Loyola Medical Center Campus is located about 25 minutes from downtown Chicago, a vibrant city with 6 Academic Medical Centers and a history of a supportive collaboration in ophthalmology education and research. The public and private school systems are excellent, and urban or suburban opportunities offer the applicant a wide variety of attractive lifestyles.
