General Description

The Divisions of Pediatric Hospital Medicine and Quality and Safety at Johns Hopkins Children's Center (JHCC) are looking for a full-time faculty member for our expanding divisions. This opportunity entails a faculty position at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, clinical work as a pediatric hospitalist at JHCC, and academic time to perform quality improvement or patient safety research to expand the portfolio of projects currently underway at JHCC. The ideal candidate would have experience at the faculty level and/or fellowship training in the field of pediatric hospital medicine, a desire to help build a successful program of QI scholarship and be eligible to sit for the Pediatric Hospital Medicine board certification exam by 2023.

Additional perks of this faculty position include:


- teaching outstanding medical students and residents as a full time faculty member at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; one of the most prestigious medical schools in the world

- a competitive salary and an exceptional benefits package that includes a college tuition remission program 

- a flexible schedule with a team of dedicated academic mentors, statistical support, a plethora of grant review mechanisms, budget assistance, and people who want to see you succeed.
