Special interest and experience in neuromuscular disorders and cognitive/communication/behavioral disorders is desirable but not required for consideration. The position offers a competitive compensation package, including signing bonus and paid relocation.
This position offers the ability to provide clinical care as well as teach residents and medical students in a setting with an expanding and collegial, multi-disciplinary team at the only children’s hospital in Louisiana and Mississippi ranked by U.S. News & World Report - five years in a row. One of the largest non-university-based physician training centers in the United States, Ochsner maintains a combined residency program with Tulane University Medical School. Medical students from Tulane and the University of Queensland/Ochsner Clinical School rotate through the division. The successful candidate will be eligible for an academic appointment commensurate with experience.
The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development is committed to improving the lives of children and adolescents with developmental disorders through comprehensive interdisciplinary team evaluations, integrated treatment protocols, high-quality evidence-based patient care, direction of special education services, and professional education and research. As the only facility to offer this type of comprehensive care in the region under one roof, the Boh Center fills a critical need for specialized pediatric care in Louisiana.
For more than 75 years, Ochsner has offered a level of pediatric care unmatched in Louisiana and more advanced capabilities than any other children’s hospital in New Orleans. More than 26,000 employees and over 4,500 employed and affiliated physicians in over 90 medical specialties and subspecialties call it home. Ochsner’s rapidly growing pediatric department currently is comprised of more than 140 physicians. The group is the Gulf South region’s leading integrated provider of multispecialty care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. The hospital offers a full range of pediatric care from primary to quaternary care, with services offered in all subspecialties including advanced gastroenterology/hepatology, orthopedic surgery, oncology and heart, liver and bone marrow transplant. Ochsner pediatric physicians collaborate with nationally recognized adult partners to provide young adult transitional care in a variety of specialties.
The appeal of living in New Orleans is absolutely undeniable, from its blend of cultures and rich history to its distinct neighborhoods and professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality. Residents also enjoy proximity to an international airport when it’s time to explore. If you’re craving the beach, the Gulf shores of Alabama are about two and a half hours away by car; and the white sands of Pensacola, Florida, are just three hours away.
The “Big Easy” is known for its Southern hospitality and welcoming attitude. After exploring this opportunity first hand, you will understand the reason why so many have chosen to work here and call NOLA home.
