On behalf of Dr. Glenn Flores, Chair of Pediatrics and Sr. Assoc. Dean of Child Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (MSOM), and Physician-in-Chief at Holtz Children’s Hospital in the Jackson Health System (JHS), CareerPhysician, LLC, the national leader in academic pediatric leadership recruitment, has initiated an international search to identify a transformational leader to serve as the inaugural MSOM Chief of the Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.

  • The incoming Chief will have the tremendous opportunity to elevate a pediatric hospital medicine (PHM) section to a division, with the vision to achieve national pre-eminence in PHM through exceptional clinical care, teaching, research, quality improvement, and advocacy.

Opportunity Highlights:

  • Benefiting from a highly collegial culture in the current section, tremendous opportunities exist in key areas such as cultivating faculty development and leadership in all areas of academic PHM, creating a sedation team skilled in minor procedures to support both inpatient and consulting teams, and by establishing a leading PHM fellowship program with the goal of becoming a center of excellence that goes beyond traditional inpatient care.
  • Building world-class divisional research is also a priority. The communities Holtz Children’s Hospital serves are a rich environment for cutting-edge clinical research, implementation science, and community-based participatory research.
  • Multiple areas of interest will be supported by the Department of Pediatrics, with unique opportunities to be part of the Batchelor Children’s Research Institute, as well as to collaborate with the Mailman Center for Child Development, an academic center at MSOM that is one of the top-10 programs in the United States for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and chronic illness.
  • As part of the Total Rewards benefits package, University of Miami faculty, staff, and eligible dependents can receive tuition remission for undergraduate and most graduate degree programs.
  • Miami is known as the top-ranked healthiest city in the United States, where you will enjoy no state taxes, weather that is never cold, endless recreational pursuits, and world-class amenities!
