Pediatric Hospitalist at Duke Children's Hospital
The Division of Hospital Medicine at Duke University / Duke Children’s Hospital is seeking a BC/BE pediatrician to serve in a newly developed hospitalist role. The role will entail a mix of daytime and nighttime shifts with diverse clinical responsibilities including surgical co-management, rounding on full-term nursery babies, and assisting general pediatrics inpatient teams with admissions and overflow. Applicants should have an interest in providing inpatient care to a diverse and complex population of patients and have excellent clinical and communication skills. While this is primarily a non-teaching position, there will be opportunities to work with both resident and student learners on the night curriculum. In addition, we expect hospitalists in this role to work on quality and safety projects related to pediatric hospital medicine.
Duke Children’s Hospital serves as both a primary care facility and a referral center for patients from North Carolina and throughout the Southeast. The Department of Pediatrics currently includes over 230 faculty, 74 residents, and 62 subspecialty fellows. We have superb residency training programs in pediatrics and combined medicine-pediatrics as well as fellowship training experiences in almost all pediatric subspecialties including pediatric hospital medicine. The children’s “hospital within a hospital” has a total of 190 beds. The pediatric hospital medicine group provides coverage for two inpatient general pediatrics teams, an inpatient complex care service, a procedural sedation unit, and co-management of pediatric surgical patients.
