The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Critical Care Medicine at Stanford University, is seeking board eligible/board certified (BE/BC) pediatric intensivists for clinically-focused positions on the Clinician Educator (CE) faculty line based in the expanding Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford (LPCHS). LPCHS is in the process of creating America’s most-technologically advanced, family-friendly and environmentally sustainable hospital for babies, children and pregnant women. The new hospital, set to debut in December 2017, adds 521,000 square feet of space and 149 patient beds to its existing building. Six new surgical suites, a nuclear medicine department, three new imaging units, four diagnostic units including a cardiac “hybrid” angiography suite, and more than 3.5 acres of healing gardens and green space are designed into the expansion. As part of this expansion, the PICU will transition from its current 24 bed unit to 36 beds.
The faculty in the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine provide a robust clinical service caring for 1600-1800 acutely ill, highly-complex patients/year in the 24-bed PICU at LPCHS, along with two satellite PICUs in John Muir Medical Center (Walnut Creek) and California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco). The LPCHS PICU provides a full range of advanced critical care services, including ECMO. It supports all subspecialty services at LPCHS as a Level 1 Trauma Center, directs the 24/7 Transport and Transfer Center, the Palliative Care program, and the REVIVE resuscitation program. In addition to caring for children in the PICU, Division faculty members are invested in basic, translational, clinical, and quality improvement research. CE faculty have opportunities to participate in clinical, quality improvement, and educational research depending upon individual interests. The education program in the Division includes a vibrant, ACGME-accredited fellowship program with 14 categorical fellows in training over three years.
To qualify for a CE faculty position, candidates must possess board certification in Pediatrics, BC/BE in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, and be eligible for medical licensure in California. Successful candidates will be appointed to the CE faculty at the Clinical Assistant, Associate or Professor rank in the Department of Pediatrics at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Rank will be determined by the qualifications and experience of each successful candidate. The major criterion for appointment in the CE faculty line is demonstrated excellence in clinical care and clinical teaching.
To apply for the position, please submit a current CV and a brief letter of interest to the Division’s Interim Chief, Stephen J. Roth, MD, MPH at the following email address: SRoth@stanford.edu
