The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a Full-time Clinical Nephrologist to join the Division of Nephrology

Ranked 11th in the country according to US News and World Report, the Division of Nephrology at Mount Sinai operates a high volume, high impact clinical program.  The division’s mission, under the leadership of John Cijiang He, M.D., Ph.D, System Chief of Nephrology, is to deliver outstanding clinical care in all aspects of Nephrology, advance knowledge in the field through an active research program, and to provide an outstanding educational experience for medical students, house staff, and fellows at the Icahn School of Medicine.  

Located at the flagship hospital of the Mount Sinai Health System, the Division of Nephrology is a principle provider of nephrology services to a diverse New York City patient population.  Full-time faculty deliver comprehensive and expert kidney care in both the faculty-practice and hospital-based setting.  Sub-specialty consultative advice is also available for patients with all forms of glomerulonephritis via our GN Center, genetic kidney disease, cancer-related nephropathy, and diabetic nephropathy.  A high volume outpatient kidney biopsy service is available to facilitate prompt tissue diagnosis when needed.   

The Division of Nephrology is at the forefront of CKD management; leveraging advanced screening techniques to optimize outcomes and offering a dedicated CKD nurse practitioner who assists our nephrologists with ensuring timely patient follow up, CKD/ESRD education, and modality selection.  Our patients may select from all currently available kidney replacement therapy modalities including peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis, and in-center hemodialysis.  Mount Sinai also has a busy kidney transplant program completing the full spectrum of options for our patients. 

Faculty recruits may expect to provide inpatient consultative nephrology services at Mount Sinai Hospital as well as ambulatory consultation in the clinic setting.  With a rapidly growing dialysis population, faculty may cover one or two shifts of patients at an affiliate dialysis center and may also service as medical director.  Our faculty members work closely with and teach nephrology fellows and internal medicine house staff as well as colleagues from other divisions and departments.  The division maintains a high profile in the hospital and across the health system with nephrologists serving in a number of leadership and administrative roles.  The current position will have a focus on outstanding clinical work and teaching and have opportunities for clinical research and other activities where possible.  The successful candidate will be board certified or eligible in Nephrology. 

We offer our employees a highly competitive salary and incentive based on experience and qualifications and a highly competitive benefits package, 403(b) retirement plan, and much more.
