Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Omaha, in collaboration with the Department of Pediatrics at The University of Nebraska College of Medicine is recruiting for Division Chief of Cardiology. The division is thriving clinically and academically with 21 faculty cardiologists, 3 cardiac surgeons, and growing numbers of APP and nursing team members. This special opportunity has unlimited potential to lead the research and educational endeavors of the cardiac program. The clinical opportunity is exciting with the expected opening of the new Hubbard Center for Children hospital building which will house a 32-bed variable acuity cardiac unit. The clinical skill set of the applicant should be one of significant experience in cardiology, but that expertise need not be in any specific area. Candidates should demonstrate outstanding experiences as an educator as well as significant academic productivity. The commitment to administrative roles within the division, the hospital and the department of pediatrics will be sizeable. Given the significant proportion of fellows, junior faculty, and early mid-career faculty, mentorship and guidance in academic advancement will be required of the successful candidate.
