Research Faculty, Surgery 

Posted November 2023

In an era where healthcare is evolving at an unprecedented pace, Wake Forest University School of Medicine stands at the forefront of innovation, collaboration, and patient-centered impact. With an unwavering commitment to improving health, elevating hope, and advancing healing, we are shaping the future of healthcare through bolstering our commitment to being a next-generation academic Learning Health System (aLHS). With an increasingly diverse patient population, we are seeking to bridge the gap quicker between scientific discoveries and their practical applications in real-world healthcare settings.

To do this, we are launching faculty searches for Clinically Embedded Scholars, who will be critical to the realization of an effective aLHS. Our institution thrives on collaboration, recognizing that solving complex healthcare challenges demands a collective effort. As part of a vibrant academic and clinical environment, we encourage multidisciplinary partnerships that span departments, centers, and institutes, magnifying the impact of patient-centered care that keeps patients safe, promotes healing, and includes, informs, and inspires patients. 

The ideal Health Services Researcher would work collaboratively across this Academic Learning Health System to generate and support surgical research. Our vision is to create a leadership culture that advances surgical science, transforms education, and inspires innovation to be the first and best choice for comprehensive, interdisciplinary surgical care.

Candidates who have demonstrated methodological expertise in the areas of policy, economic or program evaluation, pragmatic trials, population health theory and behavior, statistical analysis of large administrative, claims, registry or electronic medical record datasets, implementation and dissemination research, or learning health systems are of particular interest. The researcher will be expected to help advance the extramural portfolio of the department, and leadership opportunities are available.

Ideal candidates will have the following qualifications:
