Chief, Child Neurology

Department of Pediatrics

Yale School of Medicine

New Haven, Connecticut

Yale School of Medicine seeks a collaborative, accomplished, and visionary leader to serve as the chief of the section of child neurology in the department of pediatrics. Situated in one of the premier academic medical centers in the country, the section of child neurology is the primary provider of pediatric neurological services for the state. Beyond this important clinical role, the section of child neurology is also an important training ground for future clinicians, serving as the state’s only categorical 5-year residency program in pediatric neurology, while maintaining an active research portfolio to advance our understanding of, and treatments for, many neurological disorders.

The school of medicine excels at all areas of the tripartite mission – education, research, and clinical care. The school of medicine enrolls more than 1800 students across all programs, with over 1700 fellows across its campus. These students and fellows work with the accomplished faculty of the school of medicine, who received over $800 million in research funding in 2022, with over $500 million from the NIH. Clinical care is conducted in the Yale New Haven Health System, one of the top healthcare systems in the United States. Cutting edge care is provided across the state and into neighboring states and includes the top ranked adult hospital and pediatric hospital in Connecticut by U.S. News and World Report.

Reporting to the chair of pediatrics, the chief of child neurology will have the opportunity to grow the section, having the resources and support to recruit and mentor clinicians, physician scientists, and basic scientists to advance a progressive vision for child neurology. The chief will have many willing partners in this endeavor, leveraging the collaborative nature of the school of medicine and health system to build further expertise across all missions of academic medicine. The successful candidate will be a strong leader with a deep expertise and commitment to clinical excellence, mentorship, education, and innovative research.
