Clinician Educator – Pediatric Nephrology #1010885

The Department of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine is seeking a pediatric nephrologist to join our growing and diverse academic faculty of 12 members. This faculty position, rank commensurate to experience, primarily encompasses 80% effort in clinical care and trainee education. We encourage any type of focused interest for the remaining time in either quality improvement, advocacy or clinical research. Some prior faculty level experience and experience with different types of pheresis procedures is desirable but not required.

The division has a thriving clinical program with a wide range of pathology and provides acute and chronic dialysis services, all types of pheresis services (plasma exchange, photopheresis, red cell reduction, stem cell collections) and pre- and post-transplant care. We perform our own kidney biopsies. Our school, department and division all have a long-standing track record of outstanding basic and clinical research. We are recognized for outstanding teaching to our sizeable pediatric residency program and have a long-standing ACGME approved Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship program. The division has consistently been listed in the US News and World Report top Pediatric Nephrology programs. Faculty members practice at the attached St Louis Children’s Hospital (ranked in all 10 specialties in each annual US News and World Report), which is a part of the very large 13-hospital Barnes-Jewish Care health care system. The Wash U Medical Center campus is located next to the 1371-acre Forest Park, one of the largest public parks in the country.

The greater St Louis area offers many hidden gems, including world class (and free) museums, numerous theaters, 4 professional sports teams, and plentiful outdoor activities. St Louis has its own hallmark cuisine. The cost of living is very affordable.
