The Johns Hopkins All Children s Heart Institute in St Petersburg, Florida, is recruiting a Director of Advanced Imaging for our rapidly expanding program. The Heart Institute provides comprehensive pediatric and congenital cardiac care as well as pediatric heart transplantation. We have been providing pediatric cardiology services for children with congenital heart disease since 1977. The Director of Advanced Imaging will join a robust Pediatric Cardiology Imaging division that includes a Director of Fetal Cardiology and Director of Pediatric Echocardiography.
Johns Hopkins All Children s Hospital (JHACH) is a 259-bed teaching hospital, ranked as a U.S. News & World Report Best Children s Hospital in eight pediatric specialties (2021-2022) and the #1 Children s Hospital in Florida. We are the only US hospital outside the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. location that is part of the Johns Hopkins Medicine system. Our institution is very committed to supporting candidates with interest or experience in basic science, clinical and/or translational research. Qualified physicians are eligible for an academic appointment at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, preference being a rank of Associate Professor or higher (rank is open and commensurate with experience).
The Johns Hopkins All Children s Heart Institute is in a growth mode with current surgical volume around 150 cases and the goal being 300 or more cases in 5 years. The Division is on pace to read roughly 13,000 transthoracic echocardiograms, 700 Fetal echos, 200 cardiac CTs and 100 cardiac MRIs this year with volumes expected to increase as we continue to grow. Our practice currently consists of 20 pediatric cardiologists, and we aspire to be the best program in the Southeast. Our clinical results have been outstanding, and we seek an experienced advanced imager who will continue to raise the bar through state-of-the-art MRI/CT work, surgical planning with EchoPixel, and expansion of our academic output as we look towards starting a fellowship in 2023.
Candidate requirements include fellowship training in pediatric cardiology, additional training in advanced pediatric cardiology imaging, along with significant advanced imaging experience, preferably in an academic setting. Responsibilities include building and leading a team of imagers (including radiologists) to cover MRI and CT 5 days a week. He/she will also educate the technologists in radiology on performance of high-quality CT and MRI, lead development of standard protocols for use, and be the go-to person for determining appropriate imaging modality for the question being asked.
