Position Description

The University of Washington Department of Pediatrics, Division of General Pediatrics invites applications for a 100% FTE full-time faculty position at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor, Clinical Associate Professor or Clinical Professor on the Full Time Clinical Faculty track. Rank is commensurate with experience and qualifications. This is a 12-month service period (July 1 - June 30). Anticipated start date is Fall 2021.

The candidate will work in an outpatient pediatric teaching practice at a hospital-based academic teaching center. The successful candidate will assume a panel of general pediatric patients, which includes a significant proportion of children who have experienced adverse events such as prenatal exposures or complex trauma. Many of these children have histories of child welfare involvement or international adoption and may have behavioral health concerns or developmental disabilities.

While most time at this site will be in the provision of direct patient care, there will also be opportunities to participate in medical student or resident supervision. In that role, the candidate’s responsibilities will include clinical supervision, teaching, evaluation, and feedback.

Full time clinical faculty are evaluated and promoted on the basis of clinical excellence, professionalism, and non-clinical contributions to the mission of the clinic and Division. Opportunities to participate in program development, quality improvement, research, or outreach are integral to clinical work at the University of Washington.

All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will have earned an MD or DO (or foreign equivalent) and should be board certified or board eligible in pediatrics.

In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S.) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
