We are growing! Due to the expansion of both our inpatient and outpatient general pediatric programs, the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital is seeking a dynamic and experienced leader in general pediatrics to lead our Division of General Pediatrics. We are looking for an established academic physician with an independent research portfolio to lead a team of talented physicians and administrators located at many practices in our health system. General pediatricians with significant operational expertise, and those who have training and experience in programmatic quality and safety, or those with a strong background of medical education are strongly encouraged to apply.
The outpatient general pediatric network of the Mount Sinai Health System includes our continuity clinic practice, Pediatric Associates, which has just undergone a complete site renovation, and cares for many of the most medically underserved residents of New York City at our central campus alongside Kravis Children’s Hospital. We have two faculty practices, one connected to our campus and another 15 blocks away in Manhattan, as well as additional practices at Mount Sinai Queens, Mount Sinai Union Square, and in Brooklyn Heights all using an interconnected EMR (Epic). Overall, there are 29 faculty in the Division, and we interact with many voluntary pediatricians from outside practices who work closely with leadership on areas of clinical care. In total, our outpatient programs have approximately 80,000 visits each year. Our network is also working on collaborative research projects that leverage the patient populations at our diverse sites. Finally, the Division has a strong links with the robust Mount Sinai global health program.
The ideal candidate will have a strong academic portfolio as well as leadership experience in optimizing outpatient pediatric care to meet current and future best clinical practices. The Division Chief is expected to enable faculty at all levels of experience in the Division to succeed in their individual practice settings and in particular will have a demonstrated commitment to mentoring trainees and junior faculty. While completion of a fellowship in academic general pediatrics is preferred, it is not required. Those candidates with a strong research experience and grant portfolio, or those with training and experience carrying out formal programs to ensure systems quality and safety, or those with a track record of experience in the field of medical education are all strongly encouraged to apply. In short, we are seeking bright, independent physicians with a commitment to academic pediatrics paired with an ability to lead a large network of outpatient pediatricians and whose vision and desire to lead the ongoing growth of a premier academic division is evident. Academic rank, salary, and start-up support will be commensurate with qualifications.
