System Chair, Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Communication Sciences, Ochsner Health
Ochsner Health, the largest health system in Louisiana and the central Gulf Coast, seeks an experienced physician leader to serve as System Chair of Otorhinolaryngology and Communication Sciences. The successful candidate will lead a highly engaged and academically productive group of 30 otolaryngologists and 10 advanced practice providers who practice at 11 sites in the Greater New Orleans and Baton Rouge area, with its academic and referral hub at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans.
In addition to clinical activities, the Department serves as the primary training site for otolaryngology residents from Tulane University as well as medical students from all Louisiana institutions and the Ochsner Clinical School of the University of Queensland (Australia). There is an active research section focusing on clinical and outcomes research, including clinical trials. Ochsner Otorhinolaryngology enjoys a strong regional reputation and rising national reputation, reflected in our frequent inclusion in the US News and World Report Top 50 rankings.
The Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Communication Sciences has expanded dramatically over the past 7 years, nearly tripling in size and scale. There has been particular growth on the subspecialty academic side, with development of teams in head and neck surgery, laryngology, rhinology and skull base surgery, otology/neurotology, and pediatric otolaryngology. As a system department, we deliver comprehensive ENT care across the region, with complex, referral-based care occurring at Ochsner Medical Center. To manage this growth, the departmental structure accounts for regional leadership, as well as existing Vice-Chairs for Academic Affairs and Operations, in a dyad relationship with administrative partners.
The successful candidate will have a national reputation for excellence and academic accomplishment within otolaryngology head and neck surgery, along with at least 3 years of leadership at the Section or Department level. Strategic planning, execution of a clear vision, familiarity with service line structure, experience in quality improvement and safety, financial acumen, and a collaborative approach are essential requirements to succeed in our group practice.
Ochsner Otorhinolaryngology is a historically strong and innovative department that is on a path to be a national leader in our field - we are looking through a diverse applicant pool to find the leader that will continue our exciting journey and take us to new heights.
