Solomon Center Announces Medical Legal Partnership Director Opportunity

Baker Hall Courtyard

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School, in collaboration with Yale New Haven Hospital and Yale School of Medicine, is seeking applications for a lawyer to serve as its inaugural Medical Legal Partnership (MLP) Director to lead its MLP program.

MLPs embed legal services into the healthcare setting, allowing patients to address health harming civil legal needs in a trusted setting. The Director will oversee and lead the legal component of three existing as well as future New Haven-based MLPs. The three existing MLPs were all founded by the Solomon Center and each serves distinct patient populations – patients recently released from incarceration, cancer and geriatric patients, and immigrant patients. These MLPs are based at Yale New Haven Hospital or Yale School of Medicine, and the MLP Director will be affiliated with all three organizations. The MLP Director will also be a collaborative partner with New Haven’s other existing MLPs that serve pediatric and veteran patients, and will be physically located in a clinical setting at Yale New Haven Hospital.

The MLP Director will work closely with the Solomon Center’s directors and staff as well as members of the medical teams of the MLPs and hospital and Yale School of Medicine administrators. The Director will also pursue scholarship and represent the MLP on a national level in the growing field of MLP research.

Read detailed application information and job description, and interested applicants can  learn more about the MLP program and the work of the Solomon Center on the Center’s website.
