Title: Open Rank (WOT), Pediatric Rehabilitation Academic Physiatrist - Rehabilitation Medicine


Position Details


Position Description

The University of Washington’s Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, is seeking applicants for one part- or full-time (0.8 to 1.0 FTE) faculty position to be based primarily at Seattle Children's Hospital (SCH).  This position will be at the rank of Assistant, Associate or full Professor WOT (without tenure due to source of funding). Salary and academic appointment at University of Washington will be commensurate with experience, qualifications, and academic rank. Qualified candidates of all levels of experience will be considered. Assistant professors WOT are eligible for multi-year appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). Associate and Full professors WOT hold indefinite appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off.

The anticipated start date would be January 1, 2023, but other start dates may be considered.

This position will engage in all areas of pediatric rehabilitation, including clinical services on the inpatient rehabilitation unit, consultation service, and outpatient clinic; cerebral palsy and complex tone management in an interdisciplinary framework; and management of neuro-modulating therapies and chemodenervation procedures. The selected candidate also 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.”

Qualifications

The successful candidate will have an MD or DO degree (or foreign equivalent). Candidates must be board-certified or board-eligible in PM&R; sub-specialty board-certified or board-eligible in Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, or board-certified or board-eligible in Pediatrics; and be eligible for medical license in the State of Washington.

In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S,) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
