Discover Your Career at Emory University
Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
The Pediatric Institute of Emory University and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is seeking an outstanding Pediatric Allergist-Immunologist physician to join the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy/Immunology, Cystic Fibrosis, and Sleep (PACS) as a clinician educator. The focus for this position will be teaching and clinical service in both pediatric allergy and immunology. Candidates will have the opportunity to join a busy and diverse allergy/immunology clinical service with outstanding faculty. The pediatric Allergy/Immunology clinical care team manages routine allergy problems, severe asthma, more complex cases involving multiple food allergies in the setting of atopic dermatitis and/or eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders, as well as patients with a variety of immunological disorders. The clinical Allergy/Immunology program also includes multidisciplinary clinics in Severe Asthma in collaboration with Pediatric Pulmonology; 22Q deletion in collaboration with Endocrinology, Genetics, Gastroenterology and Otolaryngology; and soon will be serving patients with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders in collaboration with Gastroenterology. In addition, this faculty will collaborate with colleagues in hematology/oncology, transplant, hospital medicine, and laboratory medicine in the management of immunological conditions. The person filling this position will function as both an inpatient and outpatient consultant in conducting comprehensive assessments of children with allergy and immunology system disorders; synthesize a plan of care based on the needs of the child and family; and collaborate with other care providers in order to make care plans successful. Finally, we have committed to enhancing food allergy care and research under the leadership of Dr. Brian Vickery by establishing the Emory + Children's Food Allergy Center in 2018. Our site is a Clinical Research Center of Distinction within the FARE Clinical Network and aims for continued growth as a regional and national leader in food allergy in the coming years. Thus, we are now recruiting a full-time, board-certified (or eligible) allergist/immunologist at the Assistant or the Associate Professor level to join the PACS division as an Allergy/Immunology clinician educator. Expertise in pediatric immunologic disorders is a key requirement for this position as it is expected that the successful candidate will hold both allergy and immunology clinics.
Emory's Department of Pediatrics has a nationally recognized pediatric residency training program and PACS has fellowship programs in Allergy/Immunology, Pulmonology, and Sleep. We are committed to advancing the careers of our fellows and other learners at all stages through teaching and mentorship activities that include bedside teaching as well as oversight of research and quality improvement projects. The person filling this position will have a very active role both in clinic and the inpatient Allergy/Immunology service as an educator for medical students, residents, and fellows.
The environment aligns institutional strengths to ensure academic and clinical productivity. Children's is the largest pediatric healthcare system in Georgia and one of the largest in the country, serving nearly 350,000 unique patients each year with 532 licensed beds. The Allergy/Immunology clinic, the Food Allergy Center, and the other PACS clinics are all housed within the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, a state-of-the-art 260,000 square foot outpatient clinic facility that brings together over 20 pediatric specialties, clinics, and programs under one roof aiming to provide a better way to treat children and teens with chronic diseases and complex care needs. In addition to being recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top pediatric hospital, Children's has been listed as one of Fortune magazine's 100 best places to work for 9 consecutive years.
