SEEKING BC/BE ENDOCRINOLOGISTS

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is a tertiary care health system in eastern Pennsylvania.  The main campus is located one hour north of Philadelphia and 90 minutes west of NYC. Within a 50 mile radius there are now 6 hospital campuses and a growing cadre of outpatient centers and primary care practices. Endocrinology positions are available at our hospitals in Hazleton, East Stroudsburg, Bethlehem and Allentown, PA. In 2018, LVHN will welcome two fellows into its newly approved, free-standing, fully-accredited endocrinology fellowship program.

Our newly hired physicians will be employed by Lehigh Valley Health Network, one of the largest health systems in the state of Pennsylvania. For 21 consecutive years, LVHN has been listed in U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation’s best hospitals.  In 2016, LVHN was recognized for being in the top 3% of leading hospitals in diabetes and endocrinology.  The Division of Endocrinology comprises 11 endocrinologists and boasts recent ACGME approval of an endocrinology fellowship to commence in July 2018.  The Division has 4 IRB-approved studies ongoing and was chosen as one of only two institutions to pilot the new “artificial pancreas” insulin pump. 

All of our campuses have easy access to the Department Chair, the network’s fleet of air ambulances, advanced technologies and a platform to develop and grow your professional career.  The communities served by LVHN include metropolitan-like cities, suburbs in the Pocono Mountains and rural communities with a moderate cost of living, fascinating history and small town charm.  All of these areas are close – but not too close -- to Philadelphia and NYC.
