The Division of General Academic Pediatrics at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is recruiting a clinician-educator physician on the non-tenure track. A position is open at entry or mid-career level.

The ideal candidate for this position would be a general pediatrician dedicated to advancing health equity in primary care pediatrics through clinical practice and medical education.

Clinical responsibilities will include outpatient clinical sessions at our two CHP Primary Care Centers  in Pittsburgh, PA. We strive to provide comprehensive, family-centered care and have embedded dental hygienists, psychologists, social workers, care coordinators, lactation consultants and improvement specialists. The majority of patients at both primary care sites are Medicaid-insured children. Clinics embedded within the Oakland site exist focused on care for newborns, asthma, weight management, and for Spanish-speaking families (Salud Para Niños). Our division also provides newborn care at Magee Women’s Hospital and care for children with medical complexity in the Complex Care Center at the CHP Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.  

Educational responsibilities will include precepting medical students and residents in the office setting. Depending on interests, opportunities exist to assume a leadership role within primary care education at the medical school, residency, or med ed fellowship level or within care delivery through our regional clinically-integrated network.

Our division faculty (20+ MD/DOs) excel in primary care clinical practice, research, and medical education. In addition to board-certification in general pediatrics, several faculty members have additional board certifications (psychiatry, DBP, pulmonology, ID, clinical informatics) or additional masters or doctorate level training (MPH, MS, or PhD). Some of our faculty joined academic general pediatrics directly after chief residency or fellowship, while others joined after working as pediatricians in the community, military, or Indian Health Service. We seek to honor the identities that members of our work community bring to their work, including race, ethnicity, national origin, gender and gender identity, sexuality, class, religion, disability and educational background. We look forward to learning about your personal career path and goals.
