Corewell Health/Helen DeVos Childrens Hospital (HDVCH) in affiliation with Michigan State University College of Human Medicine (MSU CHM) is recruiting for a Program Director (PD) of the pediatric residency program.   The PD will lead a well-established team of dedicated program coordinators, associate/assistant program directors, core faculty and pediatric chief residents.  The HDVCH pediatric residency was accredited by the ACGME in 1956 and is currently thriving with 20 categorical pediatric residents, 2 child neurology residents and 4 medicine-pediatric residents per incoming class.

We are recruiting a dynamic and vibrant PD with a desire to maintain an innovative, inclusive, and impactful learning environment.  The PD has a leadership position on the HDVCH executive management council, the Corewell Health West/Michigan State University Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC), and the Corewell Health West Program Director Council.  The PD also receives funding for annual professional development (i.e., Association of Pediatric Program Directors and ACGME annual conferences and memberships). The PD’s academic rank will be determined by Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and will be based on their qualifications and experience.

The PD will have a minimum of 50% protected time with a maximum of 80% FTE based on associate program director FTE allocations. The additional remaining time will be spent on clinical duties. The institution welcomes applicants with any pediatric clinical expertise and will work with the appropriate clinical service line to facilitate the clinical goals of the selected candidate.

Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is a U.S. News and World Report ranked 234+ bed children’s hospital that has resources that meet or exceed all of the ACGME current and future pediatric review committee curriculum requirements.  Recent announcements include a brand new state-of-the-art medical-psychiatric inpatient unit and future collaborations with community partners to build a pediatric center for behavioral health and a freestanding children’s rehabilitation hospital. In addition, this fall, the health system will open a brand-new primary care center dedicated to GME continuity clinics and educational simulation programming.
