Job Description


The Division of General Academic Pediatrics at Childrens Mercy Kansas City (CMKC) is seeking a general pediatrician to join its faculty. This position is predominantly oriented toward outpatient clinical service at the Pediatric Care Clinic at Childrens Mercy Clinics on Broadway (PCC). The PCC is a patient-centered medical home for approximately 33,000 children and adolescents, primarily serving medically and socially complex children and families from the urban core of Kansas City at approximately 75,000 patient visits annually. Outpatient clinical duties include well child/EPSDT visits, same day illness visits, and management of chronic medical conditions common to the general pediatric setting. A routine weekly schedule typically consists of eight (8) half-day clinics, with two half-days for educational and administrative activities.

As capacity changes within primary care, evening/weekend responsibilities may be present. Faculty also carry outpatient phone call responsibilities for approximately 3 weeks/academic year. Our faculty play a key role in the clinical teaching of students, residents and physician assistant students on outpatient and inpatient services, soon to include the Academic General Pediatrics fellowship. Faculty are also encouraged to explore further career development in areas of personal interest, including quality improvement, educational scholarship, research, and advocacy. Successful candidates will possess strong clinical and interpersonal skills, be board-certified in general pediatrics, and qualify for the rank of assistant or associate professor. Fluency in Spanish is desirable but not required.

The Division is also the clinical home for specialized programs including our Title X program within Teen Primary Care; Weight Management Program (in conjunction with the Center for Childrens Healthy Lifestyles & Nutrition); the Beacon Program (for children with medical complexity), ADHD Clinic, and Down Syndrome Clinic. These programs provide additional opportunities for novel research and quality improvement projects.
