The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hospital Medicine at Childrenâs Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) and the USC Keck School of Medicine are seeking BC/BE pediatrics for faculty and non-faculty positions for the Division of Hospital Medicine.Â CHLA is a 359 bed free standing full-service Childrenâs Hospital and is affiliated with the USC Keck School of Medicine.Â The Division of Hospital Medicine at CHLA employs both contract and faculty members and currently has approximately 60 hospitalists at CHLA and our community site, Providence Tarzana Medical Center (PTMC).Â It has a two-year Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Training program as well.Â Clinical responsibilities within the Division include supervision of trainees on the inpatient service, primary care for patients on the attending only service and intake management and team assignment for internal and external requests for admission to the hospital.Â Division members are also institutional leaders in Quality Improvement, Education and Throughput.Â The selected applicant for this position at CHLA will follow specific inpatients on the Hospitalist service without pediatric house staff coverage, but may supervise 3rd year medical students rotating through CHLA for their primary pediatric clerkship.Â The Hospitalist service is a 24/7 in-house model, and as such, selected candidates will work day, evening and some weekend shifts.Â Â Those at PTMC provide 24/7 in house coverage for inpatients there as well as consultation for the Emergency Department as requested and triage of admissions from other hospitals.Â A hybrid position where the selected candidate works at both the CHLA & PTMC sites may also be considered.Â While all are encouraged to also pursue scholarly work, those chosen to join the Division as faculty may have time allocated for scholarship endeavors, but this depends upon their academic tract. Â Applicants should have a major interest in providing inpatient care to a diverse and complex population of patients, have excellent communication skills, and enjoy teaching learners at various levels.
Academic appointment through USC Keck School of Medicine is available at a level appropriate to training and experience.
