The Division of Pediatric Cardiology in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University seeks a pediatric cardiologist with expertise in non-invasive cardiac imaging and fetal cardiology to join the Division as a Clinical Assistant or Clinical Associate Professor in the Clinician Educator line. The major criterion for appointment as Clinician Educators is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, teaching, administrative and/or scholarship appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.

Academic rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

The successful applicant must have a medical degree (MD) or equivalent. Candidates should have clinical training in Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology (completed fellowship and be board eligible/certified). Advanced clinical training and/or prior experience in non-invasive cardiac imaging is required. They will have demonstrated outstanding clinical abilities in non-invasive cardiac imaging of pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease. They will serve as an attending physician in the Echocardiography Laboratory at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford (LPCHS). They will also provide fetal and postnatal echocardiography services at affiliated clinical sites in the San Francisco Bay Area, as the program has a strong outreach presence.

The Echocardiography Laboratory at LPCHS has eleven faculty members who together are responsible for the performance and interpretation of approximately 12,000 pediatric echocardiograms (transthoracic, transesophageal, and fetal) annually both on the Stanford campus and at affiliated clinical sites in the Bay Area. In addition to training categorical fellows in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology, laboratory-based faculty members also provide advanced clinical and clinical research training to one or two senior non-invasive cardiac imaging fellows annually. All the faculty are actively engaged in clinical research, quality improvement projects, digital health, and curriculum development.

Applications will be reviewed beginning January 2024 and accepted until the position is filled, with a goal start date of September 1st, 2024.
