The Division of Hospital Medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is seeking BC/BE pediatricians for immediate openings for our expanding hospitalist program.
CHLA is a freestanding tertiary care non-profit children’s hospital, with 365 beds and more than 15,000 discharges per year. CHLA is affiliated with the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine. The Division of Hospital Medicine includes more than 50 faculty and non-faculty physicians and 4 Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellows, caring for patients at both the main campus as well as community sites.
The selected applicants will provide care for inpatients without housestaff on the Hospitalist service, may supervise 3rd year medical students from USC and other learners, and provide other care and administrative services as needed throughout the hospital. The Hospitalist service is a 24/7 in-house model, and as such, selected candidates will work a combination of daytime, evening, nighttime, and weekend shifts.
Applicants should have a major interest in providing inpatient care to a diverse and complex population of patients, have excellent communication skills, and enjoy teaching fellows, residents, and medical students. In addition, there will be opportunities for participation in quality, throughput, educational, and research initiatives.
We are accepting applicants for both faculty and non-faculty positions. While all are encouraged to pursue scholarly work, those chosen to join the Division as faculty will have time allocated for scholarship endeavors. Applicants will be considered for a faculty academic appointment at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, at a level appropriate for training and experience.
USC is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. USC values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply.
Children's Hospital Los Angeles is a 365 bed, free-standing, nonprofit, academic, tertiary care pediatric medical center. We provide the the highest quality healthcare for children who are the sickest and most seriously injured in our region and beyond.
