Position Details


Position Description

The University of Washington’s Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, is offering an outstanding opportunity for an academic physiatrist, working primarily at Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH).  This will be a full-time appointment with an annual service period of 12 months (July 1 – June 30), appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (without tenure due to source of funding) in the Clinician-Educator pathway. Anticipated start date is July 1, 2022.

This position practices in a collaborative and multidisciplinary academic environment. Opportunities will be available for building an academic career that includes clinical care, teaching, research opportunities, and program development.

This position will engage in all areas of pediatric rehabilitation, including clinical services on the inpatient rehabilitation unit and outpatient neuromuscular clinic, treating patients with muscular dystrophy, SMA, and general rehabilitation issues. May have opportunity for leadership role in the Neuromuscular Clinic and/or the Pediatric Rehabilitation Fellowship Program. The selected candidate will participate in the teaching of fellows, residents, and medical students and will have opportunity to participate in curriculum and program development as well as research activities. 

All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.

Seattle Children’s Hospital, a tertiary care children’s hospital servicing a 4-state region, is an integral part of the University of Washington PM&R residency program. 

The UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Seattle Children's Hospital are committed to continually building an inclusive culture; have a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and believe that diversity fosters excellence.

The Seattle-Tacoma/South Puget Sound region is a family-oriented community in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. It is widely recognized as one of the most desirable locations in the United States to live and work, with a wide spectrum of outdoor, cultural, educational, and sporting events, and with year-round recreational opportunities.

The mild winters and temperate summers enable year-round outdoor activities. To answer the question on many people's mind: "No, it doesn't rain all the time." Seattle gets less rain annually than Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Miami, and many other major metro areas. Surrounded by both mountains and water on two sides, Seattle's natural beauty and proximity to nature, perhaps, contribute to its inherent attitude of calm and patience.

For many, living in Seattle has as much to do with what is outside the city proper as what is inside. Less than an hour from downtown, residents escape for the day or weekend to wineries, ski resorts, hiking trails, and sprawling parks. Seattleites bring that love of nature into the city proper as much as possible, enjoying Seattle's parks and tree-lined streets while staying cozy in fleece jackets.

U.S. News & World Report analyzed 125 metro areas in the United States to find the best places to live based on quality of life and the job market in each metro area, as well as the value of living there and people's desire to live there. Seattle is ranked #13 in “Best Places to Live” and #50 in “Best Places to Retire.”

  • be board-certified or board-eligible in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; sub-specialty board-certified or board-eligible in Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, or board-certified or board-eligible in Pediatrics
  • have or be eligible for medical licensure by the State of Washington
