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.

- 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

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.
