The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Department of Pediatrics is seeking a dynamic and highly motivated new Director for its Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. The successful applicant must share our unwavering commitment to excellence, integrity, collegiality and respect for inclusion of individuals with diverse backgrounds.
The Pediatric Emergency Department at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center treats over 30,000 patients annually and is the only Level 1 accredited pediatric trauma and burn center located in the State of Maryland. Currently, there are 15 faculty physicians, two physician clinical associates, six accredited fellows, five physician assistants, and three administrative staff members in the Division. Many trainees gain clinical experience through their rotation in the Pediatric Emergency Department, including medical students and residents from pediatrics, pediatrics/internal medicine, emergency medicine, family practice, and the physician assistant program. Pediatric Emergency Medicine clinicians work closely with an exceptional cohesive interdisciplinary team. Additionally, Johns Hopkins encompasses the full range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists, and many specialties provide coverage on-site 24/7.
The Division of Emergency Medicine has developed significantly in the last decade. This important position provides an exciting opportunity for a new Director to spearhead additional innovative growth initiatives both at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and also in collaboration with other Pediatric Emergency Departments within the Johns Hopkins Health System.
The ideal candidate for this position is an accomplished clinician, researcher, educator, mentor/inspirer, and administrator. The candidate should demonstrate prior leadership experience grounded in the core values of delivering patient- and family-centered care. Additionally, the ideal candidate for this position is at the Associate or Full Professor rank and has completed fellowship training in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. As we continue the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s efforts to increase the diversity of our leadership, we encourage applications from minority and female candidates. Academic appointment will be commensurate with the individual’s experience.
