The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria (UICOMP) seeks physicians for positions at the level of Professor, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor to enhance an important clinical program. 
Pediatric Psychiatrist positions require candidates who are BC in Psychiatry and have completed 4 years in residency and 2 years in fellowship training in Pediatric Psychiatry. Candidates with scholarly and research interests are highly desirable, along with experience in teaching medical students and residents.

UICOMP is one of the regional campuses that make up the nation’s largest public medical school. The Peoria campus is known among students for its small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and hands-on clerkships; to residents and fellows for the strong academic setting, large referral base and exceptional facilities; and by physicians seeking the ideal combination of teaching and practicing medicine in a research-based university setting.

UICOMP’s main clinical partner is OSF Healthcare Children’s Hospital of Illinois, a 136-bed, full-service hospital, with physicians in more than 140 subspecialties. Located on the campus of OSF St. Francis Medical Center, it’s the pediatric teaching affiliate of UICOMP, the state’s only major pediatric teaching hospital outside Chicago—and home to groundbreaking pediatric research in medicine.  The hospital is also proud to house the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate, which brings some of the care and services offered by St. Jude in Memphis to central Illinois.
