At the University of Kansas in Kansas City, Kansas, we are actively recruiting for a full-time Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery Specialist as an assistant, associate or full professor, depending upon qualifications.
Our department is fully accredited with three residents per year and we have faculty full-time in cornea, neuro-ophthalmology, glaucoma, uveitis, vitreoretinal surgery, comprehensive ophthalmology, optometry and oculofacial plastic and orbital surgery. The patient need is indeed great and the growing demands on our one full-time cornea specialist prompt our search for a second.
Ten years ago, our department relocated to a new space with 17,000 sq. ft. in the City of Prairie Village just south of Kansas City, Kansas. Recently added is our on-site KU Eye Surgery and Laser Center, with two ORs and room for a third, a laser suite and four clinical lanes.
We have online, internet-available imaging, including Humphrey automated visual fields, Heidelberg widefield SpectralDomain OCTs, Zeiss Visucam, Espion E2 Electrophysiology System, Heidelberg confocal system for retina and cornea, Konan Endothelial Camera, Zeiss Atlas and Galilei S4 corneal topographers and VISX IntraLase and refractive laser system, and have fully implemented medical records and imaging software (MERGE and FORUM).
This is an opportunity for clinical or research faculty, as we have growing support from the School of Medicine for both arenas.
You may contact me through my assistant Deb Kephart at (913) 588-6606 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or personally at email@example.com. To view the full job listing and to apply online, please go to http://jobs.kumc.edu/postings/15800 or https://jobs.kumc.edu and enter the position number of M0203740.
I look forward to hearing from you and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Additionally, be assured that any contact will remain confidential.
Sincerely yours, John Sutphin, MD, Luther & Ardis Fry Professor & Chairman, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Kansas
