UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA MASONIC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
The Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital (UMMCH) is looking to hire a Pediatric Hospitalist to work at a combination of our clinical sites. We are a group of 38 part-time and full-time hospitalists who provide coverage at three Twin Cities area hospitals: UMMCH, Fairview Ridges Hospital and Maple Grove Hospital. This is an outstanding opportunity to be part of a dynamic team of hospitalists, whose primary goal is to provide exceptional, family-centered and innovative care to pediatric patients. The duties of a hospitalist include all aspects of patient care from admission to discharge, caring for newborns through 18+ year-old patients, working closely with the primary care physicians and specialists. At each of our clinical sites, we are also involved in teaching medical learners of all types, quality improvement and patient safety projects, as well as administrative/leadership responsibilities. This position provides ample opportunity for growth and development.
The University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital created an inpatient pediatric hospitalist program in 2005, the first of its kind in the Twin Cities. UMMCH is an academic teaching hospital and free-standing children’s hospital, dedicated to bringing innovation to the bedside. We have a wide range of pediatric subspecialty providers to help deliver care to our medically complex patients. As an internationally renowned Department of Pediatrics we improve pediatric medical practice and change the lives of children through breakthrough research discovery, innovative clinical care, advanced medical education and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Fairview Ridges Hospital is located in the South Metro area of Minneapolis, and Maple Grove Hospital is located in the Northwest suburbs of the Twin Cities. We established Pediatric Hospitalist programs in these two community-based hospitals over the past six years. We serve a growing population and complexity of admitted pediatric patients and newborns at these two hospitals.
The position is an Assistant Professor position on the Academic or Master Clinician tracks. Full-time or part-time appointments are available. Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship experience is a plus, but not required for this position. Shifts vary from daytime to evening in-house coverage. Academic appointments will be made through the University of Minnesota Medical School's Department of Pediatrics.
