As part of efforts to expand its scholarly and clinical activities, the Department of Pediatrics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine is currently seeking a BC/BE candidate for a faculty position in Pediatric Cardiology.
USA Pediatric Cardiology currently has more than 3000 outpatient encounters per year, including almost 300 fetal echoes performed in the only ICAEL-accredited fetal echo lab in Alabama. Other services include a rural outreach clinic and a telemedicine clinic for patients with adult congenital heart disease conducted jointly with a regional ACHD specialist. Inpatient care is provided at the USA Health Children’s and Women’s Hospital, the primary referral center for the region and home to the area’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit, with approximately 900 admissions yearly. Patients requiring cardiac surgery are referred to regional surgical centers primarily in Alabama and Mississippi. Other duties include teaching medical students and pediatric residents.
Candidates should have completed fellowship training in Pediatric Cardiology and be board certified or board eligible. Level of appointment is open and will be commensurate with training, experience, and academic productivity. We offer competitive compensation and benefits. This is an outstanding opportunity to join a collegial, diverse, expanding department committed to providing its faculty with the opportunity to achieve academic and professional growth while enjoying the climate, affordability, and high quality of life of the central Gulf Coast.
