Position Details

Position Description

University of Washington School of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine at Seattle Children’s Hospital has an academic anesthesiologist position available at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor, depending on qualifications.  This position is without tenure and is either part-time or full-time with a 12-month service period.  The anticipated start date is January 2020 or soon thereafter.

The Division of Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesiology is looking to add a seventh pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist to meet the growing demands of our pediatric cardiac population in the Pacific Northwest.  Seattle Children’s Hospital serves as the primary pediatric referral center for children throughout Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (the WWAMI region).  Our cardiac anesthesia division provides anesthetic care to patients for all cardiothoracic surgeries, all cardiac catheterizations, and many non-cardiac surgeries and procedures for children with cardiac disease.  Our current volumes include approximately 600 cardiac surgeries, of which 450 are cardiopulmonary bypass surgeries, and 800-900 cardiac catheterizations per year.  These cases are supported by 400 inpatient beds and 59 ICU beds, including 24 CVICU beds.

The candidate would join a vibrant group of nearly 60 pediatric anesthesiologists at Seattle Children’s and will work with residents, fellows, and CRNAs, including one pediatric cardiothoracic anesthesia fellow and eight ACGME pediatric anesthesia fellows per year.  The selected applicant will have the opportunity to engage in research, administration, and leadership activities, and the successful applicant would join the 5th highest NIH funded pediatric institution in the country.


The successful candidate will have completed a one-year fellowship in pediatric cardiac anesthesiology (or foreign equivalent) or at least 12 months experience working as a pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist.  Must have an MD or DO degree (or foreign equivalent).  Must be board certified (or foreign equivalent) or eligible in anesthesiology and obtain State of Washington medical licensure.  In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-US) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the US Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.


Applicants should submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae.
