The Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU and the School of Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University are committed to excellence in clinical care, teaching, and clinical and basic research. The Children’s Hospital Foundation Heart Center is a rapidly growing enterprise with a growing referral base that provides comprehensive care to pediatric patients with congenital and acquired heart disease, adults with congenital heart disease, and expertise in fetal cardiology. Our state-of-the-art outpatient on-campus facility opened in March 2016 and our new state-of-the-art inpatient Children’s Hospital on the main medical campus will open in the spring of 2023.
We are seeking a pediatric cardiologist with board eligibility or certification in Adult Congenital Heart Disease to fill a non-tenure eligible position. The candidate will focus on the organization, growth, and care of the adult congenital heart disease program in coordination with the preexisting team and certified ACHD specialist with the Pauley Heart Center. There would be secondary participation in the other activities of the Pediatric Heart Center.
Candidates should possess outstanding clinical, organizational, and leadership skills. Candidates are expected to participate in the educational endeavors of the Division that supports active fellowship programs in pediatric and adult cardiology. Candidate participation would be encouraged. Candidates should be eager to join in a major dynamic effort to create a superior academic pediatric cardiology division, in a collegial atmosphere and in a wonderful mid-Atlantic city, large enough to support all the best of a major urban setting, and small enough to be friendly and communal. Successful candidates will have demonstrated experience working in and fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment or commitment to do so as a faculty member.
