Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee, UT Southwestern’s newly appointed EVP for Academic Affairs, Provost and Dean, with the advice and counsel of a faculty Search Committee, invites applications and nominations for the position of Chair, Department of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW).
The chair of the Department of Internal Medicine has primary responsibility for the oversight of UTSW’s largest department, with over 575 faculty members across 17 divisions, four departmental centers, and expanding clinical operations within the Southwestern Health Resources Network.

UTSW has a long tradition of excellence in internal medicine, a tradition that has often served as the foundation of many of the institution’s storied successes. The next department chair will have the opportunity to build on outstanding existing teaching, research, and clinical programs. The next chair of Internal Medicine will play a key leadership role in advancing the mission, operations and service of the department within the medical school and the UT Southwestern Medical Center more broadly in the Southwestern Health Resources Network. A formal position specification is available here:
