West Virginia University School of Medicine and the Pediatrics Department seeks a Pediatric Cardiac Intensivist (ranks available: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor). The successful candidate will be expected to practice in Morgantown, WV.

One year of additional training is required in pediatric cardiac intensive care if not dually trained in both fellowships.

Will consider 5 years of cardiac intensive care work experience in lieu of formal cardiac intensive care training. Preference will be given to candidates who are dually trained in Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Critical Care and are board certified/eligible in both subspecialties. All qualifications must be met by the time of appointment.

This is a unique opportunity in pediatric critical care and pediatric cardiology to join a renowned team of aligned providers in cardiology, surgery, perfusion, critical care, anesthesia and others making an extraordinary difference in the lives of patients not only locally, but across our entire state. Ours is a collaborative atmosphere that allows you to practice advanced medicine in a highly satisfying academic environment. Our mission is to provide the best possible care for our patients. We do so by recruiting some of the finest physicians from across the country - men and women who are often recognized leaders in their specialty or subspecialty; investing heavily in new technology; practicing - and frequently developing - the latest techniques; and placing the highest emphasis on achieving great quality outcomes.

With an anticipated opening of early 2022, our new 150 bed Children's Hospital will have a full suite of pediatric operating rooms, cardiac catheterization lab/interventional radiology, and GI-endoscopy with dedicated pediatric anesthesia staff. The hospital will include 34 pediatric beds, 54 NICU beds, 26 PICU beds, Heart Center, and a dedicated Cancer Center. WVU Medicine Children's is a Level 2 Pediatric Trauma Center, with plans to become Level 1, as it is for adults currently. There will also be a Birthing Center including a 30-bed obstetrical unit and maternal-fetal medicine clinic. J. W. Ruby Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in West Virginia with a pediatric cardiac surgery program, the only epilepsy monitoring unit in the state equipped to serve children, and the only hospital in the state to receive Magnet status for nursing excellence.
