The Pediatric Critical Care Physician should be a board certified pediatrician who completed a pediatric critical care fellowship and is board eligible/board certified in pediatric critical care medicine.  The critical care physician will have roles in patient care, teaching, and research. 

Responsibilities for the pediatric critical care physician include providing clinical care for the 10 bed PICU, actively participating in the pediatric ground and air transports for the region as we move toward a comprehensive designated center, and expanding the service for pediatric sedations outside the operating room.  As this Tennessee facility is designated as a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center with Special Pediatric Expertise, the pediatric intensivist will be an active participant with the pediatric trauma team.

There is opportunity to participate as a faculty member at the Quillen College of Medicine at East Tennessee State University.  This allows the pediatric critical care physician to have an opportunity to teach the first and second year medical students in the basic science program, work with the third year students during the general pediatric clerkship/PICU subspeciality rotation, and instruct the 4th year students taking the pediatric ICU Selective/Elective.  This physician will supervise the pediatric residents on the two required PICU rotations.  In addition, formal lectures will be given to the pediatric residents, community and emergency room physicians, and at local/regional conferences.   

The pediatric critical care physician will be expected to participate in ongoing quality initiatives/quality assessments and will be encouraged to participate in research and other academic pursuits.
