Pediatric Emergency Medicine

The Department of Pediatrics at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of 
Medicine (FSM) and Children’s Memorial Hospital (CMH) are seeking to recruit 
additional full- or part-time faculty to the Division of Emergency Medicine.  
Qualified candidates will have completed fellowship training in pediatric 
emergency medicine (PEM) [or will have equivalent academic practice 
experience] and should hold board certification in Pediatrics or Emergency 
Medicine.  Candidates must be eligible to sit for the PEM sub-board 

CMH is a 250-bed regional academic medical center and a designated Level 1 
Pediatric Trauma Center with 64,000 annual visits to its Emergency 
Department (ED).  CMH is a participating center in the Great Lakes Node of 
the PECARN.  Children’s will move to a new facility on the FSM campus in 
downtown Chicago in 2012.  This state-of-the-art free-standing children’s 
hospital will include a 46-bed, 36,000 square foot ED.

The Division currently has 22 PEM faculty, 10 urgent care faculty, and six 
fellows.  In addition to providing direct supervision of emergency care, all 
division faculty are actively engaged in both ‘bedside’ and didactic teaching of 
medical students, residents (pediatrics, emergency medicine, and family 
medicine) and fellows.  Faculty are also engaged in the division’s prolific 
outreach education initiatives, a diverse research program, and child advocacy.

We are seeking qualified candidates for non-tenure track positions in either 
the clinician-educator or clinician-investigator tracks.  Faculty will be afforded 
the necessary mentorship, protected time and start-up resources to assist 
their career path development.  The division is a recent beneficiary of the 
Grainger Research Initiative, a $1 million gift supporting our academic mission 
and faculty development.  All faculty will have the opportunity to actively 
contribute toward the division’s academic mission and all aspects of new 
program development.

A competitive compensation and benefits package commensurate with 
academic rank and experience will be offered.  Candidates should send their 
curriculum vitae to:

Susan Fuchs, M.D.
Associate Head, Division of Emergency Medicine
Children’s Memorial Hospital
