The Division of Child Protection in the Department of Pediatrics at Saint Louis University School of Medicine is recruiting a full time Child Abuse Pediatrician.
The physician will join an established child abuse team of one full-time child abuse pediatrician, a nurse practitioner, three social workers, and five nurses. Our team is based in Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, a 190 bed, free-standing children's hospital. We are a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. The Pediatrics Department has 130 faculty members representing all major subspecialties.
Desired skills include an awareness of the impact of trauma on children's well-being; knowledge of how various systems of care impact children's welfare; ability to collaborate with leaders and organizations to advance the integration of services for vulnerable children; and interest in improving the provision of patient care, education, and community engagement in the Saint Louis region.
Responsibilities include provision of inpatient and outpatient clinical consultation; shared call coverage; supervision of Advanced Practice Providers; education of medical students, residents, fellows, and community partners; education and mentoring of providers in Missouri's SAFECARE network; research/quality improvement activities; participation in policy development pertaining to child abuse pediatrics; provision of expert testimony and collaboration with law enforcement, children's services and other community agencies.
Our division operates a comprehensive foster care clinic providing evaluations and medical case management to children entering the foster care system.
The Child Protection Team provides leadership to community and statewide organizations including county based fatality review teams, state/local task forces and advisory committees, and the Missouri SAFECARE network.
There are ample opportunities for personal academic growth and development, new program development, community service and clinical research. Our team enjoys an excellent working relationship with the Saint Louis University School of Public Health and Social Justice and the Brown School (social work, public health, social policy) at Washington University.
Child Protection faculty hold a faculty appointment at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine commensurate with experience.
Successful candidates must be board certified/board eligible in Child Abuse Pediatrics and be eligible to hold an unrestricted Missouri medical license.
