Partner-Track Glaucoma and Cataract Surgeon | Omaha, NE

Midwest Eye Care, a 10 MD, 7 OD eye care practice based in Omaha, NE, is searching for a partner-track glaucoma surgeon.  In addition to Dr. Martin Mizener, our fellowship-trained glaucoma surgeon, we also have fellowship-trained partners in retina (3), cornea (3) and neuro-ophthalmology (1).  Midwest Eye Care is the largest eye care provider in the market.   

We are adding this position to help care for our increasing population of glaucoma patients.  However, this doctor would also be actively involved in comprehensive care, including cataract surgery.  While surgery is primarily performed at our own surgery center, we do perform cases at a local hospital for patients with significant co-morbidities.  Several of our surgeons also travel to smaller communities surrounding Omaha for subspecialty clinics or for cataract/general ophthalmology clinics.

On-call coverage is organized on a practice-wide basis.  Anterior segment doctors rotate weekday, weekend and holiday call, so each anterior segment doctor typically covers 3 weeknights per month, 8-9 weekends per year including 1 holiday weekend.  In addition, surgeons may have the option of taking part in a paid city-wide on-call rotation to cover a group of local hospitals. 

Midwest Eye Care has 9 shareholders and 8 employed doctors.  MD associates are typically offered the option to become a shareholder in both the medical practice and ASC after 12-18 months.  The key requirements to become a shareholder include full-time work status, active in surgery and taking call coverage, ABO board certification, and a good fit in the practice. 

Associates will receive a base salary with bonus incentives during the first 12-18 months of employment, with shareholder status often following that period.  Benefits include paid vacation, health insurance and recurring days off each month.  The Omaha metro area provides a low cost of living, a wide range of urban and suburban housing areas, excellent public and private school systems, and an outstanding environment in which to raise a family.   As shareholders, MEC doctors typically out-earn peers in other areas of the country. 

If you have an interest in this opportunity, please e-mail Dr. Mizener at mmizener@midwesteyecare.com.  Please include introductory information as well as your CV.

Glaucoma Specialist | Chicago, IL

Loyola University Health System (LUHS) and the Loyola University Chicago (LUC) Stritch School of Medicine in conjunction with Edward Hines Veterans Administration Hospital (HVA) are offering two full-time faculty positions on the clinical educator track (CET) for a Board Certified and fellowship trained Glaucoma Specialist.

 

The position can be a combined appointment with time split between Loyola and the Hines VA; or based on the candidates' interest can be solely at one location (either Loyola or Hines VA).

 

The successful candidate must demonstrate strong interest and prior commitment to clinical and/or basic science research. Candidates should have a history of outstanding clinical care and a strong academic commitment to the clinical training of residents and medical students. Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with training and experience.

 

The positions are available immediately. Interviews can be arranged, with opportunities available at the upcoming AGS meeting in Washington, DC.

 

Currently, the Department of Ophthalmology has 23 full time and 20 part time clinicians who manage over 65,000 patient visits per year on the Loyola (Maywood and 4 other satellite offices) and neighboring HVA sites. We have 5 dedicated research scientists (2 PhD, 2 MD, 1 OD /PharmD). The residency training program with 4 residents per year is managed by a dedicated team including the Program Director, the Vice Chair of Education and the Chief Resident. The Department of Ophthalmology will be one of 5 departments (Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and Psychiatry) to participate in a planned Neuroscience Institute. The main Loyola research facility is a 225K square foot Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE) which opened in 2015 and houses the clinical Research Office (CRO) and research administration.

In 2012, Loyola Health System merged with Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic healthcare delivery systems in the nation. Loyola University Medical Center holds the distinction of being the only academic medical center within the Trinity Health network. The organization serves people and communities in 22 states with 92 hospitals and 121 continuing care locations - including home care, hospice, PACE, outpatient centers and senior living facilities - providing nearly 2 million visits annually. In May 2019, Loyola purchased MacNeal Hospital, located in Berwyn. The Chicagoland regional Trinity clinical enterprise currently includes Loyola Health System, MacNeal Hospital, Gottlieb Hospital and Mercy Hospital. Together we help address the rapidly changing health care environment with a focus on population health and the delivery of more coordinated and integrated health care and wellness services.

 

The Loyola University Medical Center/HVA campus is located about 20 minutes from downtown Chicago in Maywood, IL. Chicago is an exciting city with 6 Academic Medical Centers and a supportive collaborative research and teaching environment. The public and private school systems are excellent and urban or suburban opportunities offer the applicant a wide variety of attractive lifestyles.

 

Interested candidates can contact me directly via email: mchaku@gmail.com
