*Note regarding timeline of job offers: In past years, GIM has typically extended job offers in January and February, although we may continue recruitment beyond then. The number of job openings and timing of offers depends in part on whether existing faculty change clinical commitments and the decisions of other candidates. Due to uncertainty about those factors, GIM is unable to specify an exact response date, but welcome ongoing communication with applicants.
