We are looking for at least two Board Certified Pediatricians to join our Neonatology Extender team. Our team is currently comprised of a mixture of NNPs and NICU Hospitalists (Pediatric Board Certified Physicians) who help to run our Level IV NICU.
Our Unit: We are a level IV NICU in a very busy Southside Children's Hospital. We have an average daily census of approximately 50 babies, and are currently undergoing construction to expand the size of our unit and create all single bed patient rooms. We have a Small Baby Unit, and we do High Frequency Ventilation, ECMO, Hypothermia, complex congenital heart disease and have full subspecialty and surgical support.
Job Description: The NICU Hospitalist will work a combination of day shifts and night shifts. The NICU extender team currently works primarily 12 hour shifts with considerable autonomy in addressing scheduling adaptations as the service grows. Daytime duties consist of writing progress notes and daily bedside rounds with a Neonatologist and Resident, updating families, working with subspecialty consults, teaching Residents and discharge planning among other things. Nighttime duties involve attending high-risk deliveries and covering the unit alongside a Neonatologist who is also in-house 24/7 and occasional Resident coverage. The NICU Hospitalist will have ample opportunity to perform intubations, UAC and UVC placement, lumbar punctures, urinary catheterization and foley placements, and can assist in higher level procedures such as chest tube placement. The NICU Hospitalists are also heavily involved in QI projects within the unit and data collection via the Vermont Oxford Network.
Our ideal candidate is a team player, has a strong work ethic, and enjoys working in a fast-paced and busy environment. We are very willing to take the time to train the right person with one-on-one mentoring if there is less than ideal NICU experience in their background.
We offer a competitive salary and benefit package as well as CME reimbursement. In addition, there is opportunity to moonlight for extra pay.
