The Department of Pediatrics at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children s Medical Center of New York, Northwell Health, is seeking a physician to join the rapidly growing Cohen Children s Heart Center with a particular focus on general pediatric cardiology, echocardiography and fetal echocardiography. The ideal candidate would be BC/BE in Pediatric Cardiology and have spent additional time in a dedicated fourth-year cardiac imaging fellowship with a focus on fetal echocardiography, or have spent significant time working in the field. Our clinicians participate in the inpatient and outpatient clinical activities of the division and details of these activities will be decided in partnership with the candidate. A strong interest in helping to grow our programs and pursue research in the field of echocardiography is desirable, as is a commitment to work and partner with multidisciplinary team members.
