Clinician Educator Pediatric Gastroenterologist

Expertise or Interest in Aerodigestive Diseases 

The Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University seeks applications for a Pediatric Gastroenterologist with interest or expertise in Aerodigestive Disorders, with the expectation of joining a leading Aerodigestive center at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor rank in the Clinician Educator line.

The major criterion for appointment, reappointment and promotion for Clinician Educators is excellence in the overall mix of clinical care and clinical teaching appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill.

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

Being a member of the Stanford Aerodigestive team
Pediatric Aerodigestive pathology spans typical boundaries that often divide pediatric specialties. The LPCH Aerodigestive Center was established to eliminate these precincts by providing a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with complex aerodigestive disease. The Stanford Pediatric Aerodigestive Team is comprised of a family of physicians within the Departments of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Otolaryngology, Pulmonary Medicine, Speech Language Pathology, Anesthesiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Pediatric Surgery. Our collaboration extends from the clinic and inpatient arena, into the operating room where we perform our procedures as a team. Ultimately, the assessment and plan for each patient is developed and communicated collaboratively. We are an engaged member of a network of Aerodigestive teams nationwide. With excellent institutional support, we represent the largest Aerodigestive team on the west coast and the most rapidly expanding Aerodigestive center in the western United States.

Your responsibilities and requirements for success in this position:

A successful candidate must be able to thrive as a member of a team of physician specialists and advanced practice providers with diverse areas of expertise. The successful applicant should be comfortable with and/or open to learning upper GI procedures and interventions. These include but are not limited to EGD, esophageal dilation, PEG placement, pH impedance placement and interpretation, and combined/concurrent endoscopic interventions. Experience with esophageal manometry would be desirable but is not required. A dedicated candidate will have the opportunity to develop a subspecialty practice among one of the leading gastroenterology programs in the country, with unique research and innovation opportunities afforded by the world-renowned Stanford Medicine campus.

We expect the successful candidate to participate in the care and management of children with a broad range of gastrointestinal disorders. The successful candidate will be involved in formal and informal teaching of pediatric residents, pediatric gastroenterology fellows, residents and fellows in other specialties, medical students, and other graduate students. The successful applicant should have an M.D., D.O. (or MD/DO/Ph.D), and board certification in Pediatrics with subspecialty training in Gastroenterology. The successful applicant should have a track record of research and innovation in clinical practice.

Applications will be reviewed as they are submitted and accepted until the position is filled.
