Location: Austin, Texas

Texas Children’s Hospital is currently extending its mission to a large and growing population of children and women. The first Specialty Care Center will open this October.

Position Summary
Texas Children’s Hospital is looking for a Pediatrician – Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition to help Texas Children’s open a new Specialty Care facility in Austin that will serve the needs of the growing population of children who live in the Austin area. We are looking for a strong clinical practitioner who has an entrepreneurial spirit and who would enjoy building a new specialty care model for the city through innovative approaches and establishing the very best pediatric care in Austin.

You’ll be backed by the largest free-standing pediatric hospital in the country, ranked in the top 4 by US News and World Report, as well as Baylor College of Medicine, one of the nation’s largest, most diverse, and most successful medical schools, recently ranked as the best medical school in Texas by U.S. News and World Report.

• Excitement about leveraging Texas Children’s expertise and reputation in caring for the children of Austin

• Ability to understand the long-term vision of care/research/education, while focusing for the first few years on practice-building
• Eagerness to be an entrepreneur, while also committed to the vision of academic medicine in the long-term (care, education and research)

• Provide high quality, patient-centered gastroenterology care and services via outpatient clinical care, inpatient coverage and inpatient consultation for children with all types of intestinal, hepatic, pancreatic and nutritional disorders.
• Define, build and support new clinical care models in Austin through collaboration with other sub-specialty providers and leaders
• Build networks and relationships that will promote and grow gastroenterology services and Texas Children’s Austin strategy and brand awareness
• Provide leadership, subject matter expertise, and representation for gastroenterology within the new specialty care center and throughout the community
• Model and cultivate Texas Children’s culture and commitment to our patients and each other, and Baylor College of Medicine’s dedication to medical care and research.
• The position will also involve collaborative clinical activities at Texas Children’s Hospital on the Medical Center Campus in Houston, Texas
• Night call for Austin based outpatient clinical practice and hospital associated Texas Children’s Hospital Austin Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition Practice

• M.D. or D.O.
• Must have or be able to obtain an unrestricted Texas medical license.
• Completion of an ACGME approved fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology (or equivalent)
• Board-certified in Pediatric Gastroenterology
