The Department of Inpatient Pediatrics at Denver Health is seeking a full-time Pediatric Neurologist/Epileptologist to join our program. As a teaching affiliate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, all of Denver Health’s inpatient pediatric services are staffed by residents from Children’s Hospital Colorado and all of our faculty have academic appointments. 80% of the neurologist’s clinical deployment will be based at Denver Health (DH) with 20% at Children’s Hospital Colorado (CHCO).
Clinical responsibilities at DH will include approximately 4 clinic sessions per week, serving as primary attending for the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU), inpatient consultations, and sharing daytime on-call responsibilities with the department’s second pediatric neurologist (call includes weekdays and approximately one weekend per month; no overnight call responsibilities unless attending on EMU). Clinical responsibilities at CHCO will include staffing 1 day (2 sessions) of clinic per week.
The neurologist will be expected to supervise and teach pediatric residents, including when attending on the DH EMU and when serving as an inpatient consultant or clinic preceptor. Participation in clinical research, quality improvement, and/or education projects is strongly encouraged, and expected for those considering academic promotion.
