Division Director, Newly Established Division of Cardiac Critical Care - Additional clinical faculty opportunities available for Pediatric Cardiac Intensivists

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical School is searching for a Director of the Division of Cardiac Critical Care. This candidate will ideally have board certification in both pediatric critical care medicine and cardiology. Those with either Critical Care Medicine or Pediatric Cardiology certification who have demonstrated a clear track record in providing care and leadership in a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit will also be considered. 

This person will also hold a Co-Leadership position with a growing Heart Center. Our CVICU and critical care physicians currently support congenital heart surgery patients, ECMO and a cardiac transplant program which includes a ventricular assist device program. The Director position will be a tenure track, academic track, or master clinician track appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor depending upon qualifications. We are also seeking additional qualified candidates for clinical faculty roles in the CVICU.

The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital is a new, state-of-the-art, children’s hospital facility that opened in 2011. Our Heart Center supports many academic physicians with clinical and basic science research initiatives. The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit supports 12 CVICU beds and 12 medical/surgical beds with approximately 1,000 admissions annually. This full-time position would require clinical time primarily in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.

Candidates must be a licensed MD/DO and board certified/eligible in either Pediatric Critical Care Medicine or Pediatric Cardiology with additional CVICU training and experience, or preferably, in both Pediatric Critical Care Medicine and Pediatric Cardiology.
