Having served my division for over 20 years, I have decided to step down and focus on other interests that – frankly - I had to put on the back burner in my role as division director. It has been an amazing journey and I am extremely proud of what my colleagues, the staff and leaders in the ED’s and I have achieved. This division will be a pleasure to run for the future division director. In addition, the division director will serve as the Chief of Emergency Services for the ED service line that encompasses Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, Scottish Rite and Hughes Spalding. With combined ED volumes of nearly 250,000 and over 150 providers (more than 50% of whom are Pediatrics Emergency Physicians), it’s the largest service line in the country. The job posting is below.
It’s a great opportunity to run a well-established and stable academic division. I am available to answer any questions you may have, or you can apply directly using the contact information below.
