RE: Academic Pediatric Emergency Medicine Positions
The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at St. Louis Children’s Hospital
and the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University in St. Louis School
of Medicine seeks to expand. There are multiple opportunities for Pediatric
Emergency Medicine Physicians (board certified/eligible) in both clinician
educator and clinician scientist roles.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital was recently included among the top ten
Children’s Hospitals on the U.S. News and World Report Honor Roll. The St.
Louis Children’s Hospital Emergency Department was recently ranked #4 by
Parent’s Magazine. The Emergency Department has a state of the art facility
which is visited by approximately 60,000 children annually. There are 28
treatment rooms, 2 large resuscitation rooms and in suite radiology.
Washington University ranks number one in medical student selectivity, and
St. Louis Children’s Hospital was recently awarded Magnet Status for
excellence in nursing and clinical care.
Our faculty have a wide-range of interests from clinical education to
hypothesis driven clinical and basic research. Areas of research interest
include: fever, occult bacteremia, discovery of new etiologic agents, asthma
and bronchiolitis, head and cervical spine injury, injury prevention, and
management of pain and anxiety. We also belong to the federally funded
PECARN collaborative research network. Additionally, we are one of two
Pediatric Emergency Divisions to have an NIH T32 training grant. Both the
Department and the University provide a supportive and intellectually
stimulating environment for clinical practice, education and investigation.
The St. Louis metropolitan area has approximately 2.5 million people, with
diverse neighborhoods and moderate cost of living. There are abundant
cultural and recreational opportunities. These include a world-class symphony
orchestra, two opera companies, professional theater and dance, and major
league teams in football, baseball and hockey. In addition, there are many
parks and trails for hiking, jogging and cycling. Finally, St. Louis offers a wide
variety of child friendly attractions making it wonderful place to raise children.
Academic Rank and salary will be negotiated commensurate with experience
and achievements. Washington University in St. Louis offers an attractive
benefits package and is an equal opportunity employer. Minority and women
applicants are encouraged.
