Position Type

Children’s Mercy’s Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center is a state-of-the-art prenatal diagnosis facility, located in one of only a handful of children’s hospitals in the nation – and the first in the Midwest.  The Center provides general MFM services for the region, but is also specifically focused on a comprehensive, integrated medical model for managing pregnancies complicated by complex fetal malformations.  The Center is seeking two additional maternal fetal medicine physicians to join the current five-member Maternal Fetal Medicine team. 

The Center also provides an array of fetal interventional services including fetoscopic procedures and fetal meningomyelocele repair.  The Maternal Fetal Medicine department provides clinical services at other hospitals including Truman Medical Center and Olathe Medical Center.  Physicians have academic appointments with The University of Missouri-Kansas City. Both Children’s Mercy and Truman Medical Center are teaching hospitals and medical students, OB/GYN residents and/or MFM fellows participate in most clinical services. We provide time for non-clinical activity and encourage basic and/or clinical research. Successful candidates will have completed an MFM fellowship, maintained board certification (or eligibility) in Maternal Fetal Medicine and be eligible for licensure in Missouri and Kansas.  Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with experience.

Children’s Mercy Kansas City is an independent, non-profit, 354-bed pediatric health system, serving half a million patients each year from across the country.  Children’s Mercy is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” and has received Magnet recognition four times for excellence in nursing services.  Children's Mercy offers a Level 4 Neonatal intensive care unit and one of the country's busiest critical care transport programs.
