The Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital seeks a full-time BE/BC fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist to join a rapidly expanding department. Subspecialty interest in advanced airway, craniofacial disorders, voice or swallowing is a plus, but not required. This is an excellent opportunity to join a regional referral, tertiary/quaternary care practice at a large freestanding children’s hospital, with a four story expansion scheduled to be completed in Fall 2022.
Physicians and advanced practice providers in the department currently care for patients in three fully integrated office suites equipped with video endoscopy/stroboscopy, speech pathology, pediatric audiology, and a brand-new ambulatory surgery center. The referral base is expansive, spanning more than four counties and nearly six million people. The department already has strong subspecialty programs in hearing loss/cochlear implants, VPI/22q, EXIT, tumors, vascular malformations, and craniofacial disorders.
This is a full-time employed position with the multi-specialty Memorial Physician Group. The position offers competitive benefits and a compensation package that is commensurate with training and experience. Professional malpractice and medical liability is covered under sovereign immunity.
