RE: Academic Pediatric Emergency Medicine Positions

Dear Colleagues,

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.  

Please feel free to contact one or more committee members via email or phone 
for more information.
