The Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital seeks a fourth, full-time BE/BC fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist to join a rapidly expanding department. Subspecialty interest in advanced airway, voice or swallowing is a plus, but not required. This is an excellent opportunity to join a regional referral, tertiary care practice at a large freestanding children’s hospital, with a four story expansion scheduled to begin in 2021.
Physicians and advanced practice providers in the department currently care for patients in three fully integrated office suites equipped with video endoscopy/stroboscopy, speech pathology, pediatric audiology, and a brand-new ambulatory surgery center. The referral base is expansive, spanning more than four counties and nearly six million people. The department already has strong subspecialty programs in hearing loss/cochlear implants, VPI/22q, tumors, vascular malformations, and craniofacial disorders.
This is a full-time employed position with the multi-specialty Memorial Physician Group. The position offers competitive benefits and a compensation package that is commensurate with training and experience. Professional malpractice and medical liability is covered under sovereign immunity.
