Childrens Mercy Kansas City is seeking a fellowship-trained PEDIATRIC OTOLARYNGOLOGIST to join our professional staff at the ASSISTANT or ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR level. We desire to recruit an individual with a keen interest in all aspects of pediatric otolaryngology, including sub-specialization as supported by prior training and experience.

This position will entail clinical care, impactful research and the education of medical students, Pediatric and Otolaryngology residents, and our Pediatric Otolaryngology fellow. The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Childrens Mercy operates in affiliation with the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Kansas, and a joint academic appointment will be sought.
