AN IMPORTANT PEDIATRIC JOB OPPORTUNITY!!!
HIRING PART-TIME PEDIATRICIAN FOR THE MEDICAL/PSYCHIATRIC INPATIENT PROGRAM AT HASBRO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL:
Seeking part-time pediatrician (20 hours per week) to provide care for patients on Medical/Psychiatric Inpatient Program of a tertiary care children's hospital. Hours flexible. Weekend call approximately every fifth weekend.
Will work in multidisciplinary team, in close collaboration with other professional disciplines (child psychiatry, psychology, social work, mental health clinicians, nursing, nutrition, pediatric medical specialties) to evaluate and treat children and adolescents with a wide range of medical and psychiatric conditions. (This inpatient program is unique in that patients admitted typically present with both medical and psychiatric issues.) While working to establish accurate medical diagnoses, pediatrician will also look to developmental, psychological and familial/social factors that may be contributing to physical complaints.
Working together with an attending physician colleague with combined board certification in pediatric medicine and psychiatry, the pediatrician hired will also assess patients' medical needs and relative appropriateness for the program prior to admission by way of collateral contact with outpatient providers and review of available medical records. In conjunction with the psychiatric and pediatric subspecialty teams, pediatrician will work with patients and their families to help develop integrated inpatient treatment plans and to assist in arranging for outpatient, ongoing follow-up.
There is ample opportunity to participate in clinical research and quality improvement projects if interested. Program development and scholarly activities are supported and encouraged. Excellent communication skills and an ability and eagerness to work within a multidisciplinary team are important.
Please contact Dr. Patricia Flanagan (401 444-5648) or Dr. Matthew Willis (401-444-4549; email@example.com ) with questions.
