New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals - Program Manager/Grantwriter
New physicians. New medicine. New ways. For New Jersey.
Different times call for different ideas. For more than two decades, the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals (NJCTH) has been the vanguard for maintaining a strong system of academic medicine in the state. Together with our members, we’ve increased funding for medical education. We’ve protected precious resident slots from disappearing. We’ve set new standards for medication safety for children, and we’ve escalated awareness and action to address the threat of physician shortage.
Serving under the direction of the CEO, the Program Manager/Grantwriter will provide leadership, coordination and on-the-ground execution of programs that support the development and implementation of various physician workforce and medical education innovation programs; including member support services, committee facilitation, workshop/conference development, information and analysis, and monitoring sector developments for opportunities and ideas. This is a unique opportunity to help create the programs that will be attractive to funders and manage grantseeking, application and implementation from beginning to end.
Today, we are looking for a committed, competent and caring professional who can play a pivotal role in creating a vibrant future for health care in our state.
We are seeking a Program Manager/Grantwriter to join us and help us continue our organizational vision and advancement.
