Seeking a board-eligible/board-certified, full-time Ophthalmologist to join an established practice at Lincoln Hospital. Work with a multidisciplinary team and serve a diverse patient population at a state-of-the-art public hospital. You will have the opportunity to build your own patient panel and provide care to all New Yorkers, regardless of citizenship or healthcare status, through New York's NYC Care program. Be a part of healthcare history and live in a charming borough just a train ride away from Manhattan.
Where You'll Work
Be at the frontier of universal healthcare with NYC Health + Hospitals, which is increasing access to its neighborhood health clinics in conjunction with New York's ground-breaking NYC Care program. NYC Care connects all New Yorkers who are ineligible for health insurance, including undocumented residents and those who cannot afford insurance, to reliable care. These outpatient, neighborhood-based primary care clinics are operated by NYC Health + Hospitals.
Where You'll Live
The Bronx, northernmost of New York City's five boroughs, is known around the world as the home of the New York Yankees, the Bronx Zoo and the New York Botanical Garden. You can find a mouth-watering array of restaurants along Arthur Avenue and a treasure trove of maritime history on City Island. You could spend hours exploring the thousand-plus acres of Van Cortlandt Park, a wooded haven of cross-country trails and picnic areas beside a scenic freshwater lake.
Who You'll Work For
NYC Health + Hospitals is the largest public health care system in the United States, providing essential inpatient, outpatient and home-based services to over one million New Yorkers every year in more than 70 locations, both community- and hospital-based, across the city's five boroughs. With 11 acute-care hospitals, five long-term care facilities and a network of primary care clinics, its diverse workforce empowers New Yorkers, without exception, to live the healthiest life possible.
