The Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology has an exciting opportunity for an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to join the Inpatient Gastroenterology (GUT) team medically managing a wide array of gastrointestinal complaints, diseases and disorders in  patients admitted to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
This GI focused APP inpatient position will likely evolve with time as the needs and demands of the service change with our established GI consultative  services at HUP, expansion services at HUP East and with potential for cross coverage as needed at HUP Cedar. Responsibilities shall include daily team rounds and inpatient GI consults. The team is comprised of GI faculty and GI Fellow(s) alongside house staff at respective locations.
