Job Description The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham seeks a nationally recognized, accomplished and visionary leader to continue to advance the clinical, research, and education missions of the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. This leader will build on the significant departmental and institutional strengths, commitment to clinical excellence, research innovation, and superb education in a culture of patient and family centered care. The Department of Pediatrics has a rich history of service and scholarship. Today, members of the faculty and their teams are recognized nationally as leaders in clinical care, research, and education. The Department encompasses 19 divisions and includes 250 highly skilled clinicians and investigators. Faculty members have diverse and complementary areas of interest and expertise including health outcomes, and together are dedicated to providing excellence in primary and specialty pediatric care, research, education, and community and global outreach. Research activity has continued to increase; extramural grant awards provided $31 million in total committed annual dollars (including over $18 million from NIH ) in FY19. The Department is deeply committed to the education of the next generation of outstanding pediatricians through robust Residency and Fellowship programs (in FY20, 96 residents and 75 fellows). The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine has 30 faculty and 9 fellows. The main site of clinical activity is in the Emergency Department at Children’s of Alabama.

Our goals are to provide the highest quality medical care to children and adolescents; to develop new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for diseases that impact our patients through basic, clinical and health services research; and to provide outstanding education across the continuum of pediatric medicine. Faculty are also engaged in strong advocacy efforts at the state and national level.

The Department seeks a division director with strong leadership experience and potential for growth. Operational knowledge of pediatric emergency medicine and an ability to work collaboratively with others in the Department of Pediatrics and with leadership at Children’s of Alabama is required. The leader must be able to advance the clinical and academic development of the faculty and to successfully lead and recruit in all three missions: clinical, education, research. The ideal candidate will qualify for an appointment at the Associate or Professor level within UAB and will be an MD, or MD/PhD who is licensed or eligible for license in the state of Alabama. Salary and tenure status are negotiable based on experience and current academic achievements.
