1010653 Pediatric Electrophysiologist

The Department of Pediatrics of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is seeking a pediatric cardiologist to join our team of 19 clinicians and basic scientists, based at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.


We seek to recruit a Pediatric Electrophysiologist to join two full time faculty members (Drs. Jennifer N. Avari Silva [Director, EP] and George F Van Hare) in our arrhythmia program. The program offers a full Electrophysiology Service, including interventional, inpatient and outpatient services.  The interventional electrophysiology laboratory is a biplane cineangiography laboratory outfitted with an Ensite electroanatomic mapping system. The program has continued to grow and is currently on track to perform approximately 140 ablations, 40 pacemakers/ICDs, and 40 implantable loop recorders per year. We also offer a multidisciplinary inherited arrhythmia clinic, and Washington University offers a clinical genomic program, which we access for genotyping. Opportunities for basic, translational and clinical research are robust with close connections with researchers in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology, and the Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University.


The ideal candidate must be eligible for licensure in Missouri, be board certified (or eligible) in pediatric cardiology, and have had advanced training in pediatric cardiac electrophysiology.  Candidates will be considered at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.


Washington University School of Medicine is consistently ranked as one of the best medical schools in the country, and is a longstanding leader in funding for pediatric research. St. Louis Children’s Hospital is a 400 bed free-standing children’s hospital established in 1879. The St. Louis Children’s and Washington University Heart Center includes an active surgical program, a 16-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, and one of the nation’s largest pediatric heart failure and heart transplantation programs.
