The Department of Pain Medicine, Palliative Care, and Integrative Medicine at Children’s Minnesota is seeking a pediatric physician in palliative care and pain medicine. The successful applicant would be a full-time consultant physician joining an interdisciplinary team providing care for patients from infancy through adolescence with pain & palliative care/hospice needs.
The physician will work as part of an interdisciplinary team, including: physicians, MD fellows, advanced practice registered nurses, nurses, social workers, psychologists, child life specialist, massage therapists, physical therapists, integrative medicine providers plus support/administrative staff. The continuity-focused practice environment includes caring for patients in both the Minneapolis and St. Paul hospitals, outpatient palliative care clinic, and in the home-based palliative and hospice programs. The inpatient service is a combined pain and palliative care consultative service while outpatient services are separated into designated palliative care or chronic pain clinics. This position does not include an expectation to provide outpatient pain care. This position will include rotating on-call responsibilities shared among a group of clinicians. Good communication skills, flexibility and a desire to learn together with the interdisciplinary team are a must. There are opportunities within the department to participate in research, education, & quality improvement. The department also hosts the ACGME accredited Pediatric track of the Hospice and Palliative Medicine physician fellowship in collaboration with the University of Minnesota.
This exciting and well-established team is looking for a physician board certified or board eligible in hospice & palliative medicine. Experienced candidates with an excellent skill set in managing children with complex and chronic conditions and a self-motivated learning style may also apply and would then be mentored through our program.
