We’d like to announce an opportunity to join our group as a Pediatric Educator and Hospitalist at Cone Health Pediatrics, a community hospital affiliated with the University of North Carolina, starting Summer 2023. This position is a great chance to practice both inpatient and outpatient medicine and teach learners at all levels. It is an ideal fit for former chief residents (many of our current faculty were chiefs) with a focus on hands-on education. Greensboro is a fantastic place to live with great weather, four seasons, and a family-friendly community. This is a truly supportive and collegial group that is a pleasure to work with.

The role is that of clinician-educator to residents and students in three clinical venues: attending physician leading a team of pediatric and family medicine trainees on an 18-bed pediatric ward, attending for well term and late preterm babies in newborn nursery with over 6200 deliveries per year, and preceptor in the resident acute care clinic. Typically, there are a total of 16 shifts per month, which includes at-home call approximately 4-5 times a month. Other responsibilities include didactic teaching, mentoring, and quality improvement projects. There are no delivery responsibilities.

The teaching service interacts closely with pediatric Intensivists who cover a 4-bed PICU, pediatric emergency physicians, in-house neonatologists who staff a 45-bed NICU in a newly opened state-of-the-art Women’s and Children’s Hospital, pediatric subspecialists, and an ambulatory clinic that serves as the home site for the UNC Pediatric Primary Care Residency. Both the inpatient ward and newborn nursery are supported by nurse practitioners.

Candidate Qualifications: BC/BE in Pediatrics or Med/Peds, possess outstanding clinical skills and teaching expertise. Board certification in Pediatric Hospital Medicine is not required. The FTE is flexible to meet the needs of the program and applicant.  Applicants are eligible for a faculty appointment at the UNC School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics at the assistant or associate professor level. There are opportunities for clinical, QI, and administrative leadership roles.

About the area: Greensboro is the 3rd largest urban area in North Carolina with a population of 300,000 people and a regional population of approximately 1 million. Greensboro offers excellent schools along with numerous parks, multi-cultural and sporting events, including the newly opened Tanger Center for Performing Arts, and much more. This family-friendly city is also one of the most diverse mid-size cities in America. For weekend getaways, Greensboro is within easy driving distance to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, as well as the pristine beaches of NC and SC.
