Description

Pediatric Cardiologist

 

The Division of Pediatric Cardiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Children’s Nebraska is seeking a board eligible or certified Pediatric Cardiologist with expertise in echocardiography and fetal echocardiography to join the faculty at the Lincoln Specialty Clinic in Lincoln, NE.  This clinic already has one full-time experienced cardiologist and an APP, with transthoracic and fetal echocardiography, ECGs and Holters completed on site.  This is a primarily ambulatory practice with the opportunity for local NICU and inpatient consultation. 

 

This is a unique opportunity, with unlimited potential to advance a clinical and academic career.  We are seeking a physician who is committed to establishing and maintaining longitudinal care for patients in the Lincoln community, but also would have the opportunity to rotate at the Children’s Nebraska main campus in Omaha to further engage their skills and interests, such as inpatient cardiology, and the echo and exercise stress lab.

 

The dedicated Lincoln team fosters a sense of family – not just amongst staff, but with patient families, the local pediatricians, and clinicians as well.  This opportunity provides a collaborative culture where physicians can excel in their medical practice while maintaining a rewarding and balanced lifestyle.

 

While based in Lincoln and having primary responsibility for these patients, Lincoln cardiologists are members of the 20+ faculty of Children’s Nebraska, including 15 noninvasive imaging cardiologists.  The Children’s echocardiography lab has celebrated over 20 years of IAC credentialed status and interprets 13,000 echocardiograms and 450 fetal studies per year, of which approximately 1000 are Lincoln based. The practice has ready access to congenital cardiac CT and MRI, with over 500 studies performed annually. Children’s Nebraska boasts an independent advanced 3D visualization lab, 3D printing and virtual reality that is completely integrated into the health system.  Lincoln is a busy additional hub for pediatric cardiology in Nebraska, with 25% of the total outpatient volume. Lincoln has an extensive referral network covering central and western Nebraska and northern Kansas. There are multiple additional rotating clinics in central and western Nebraska, serviced via outreach, and there is an opportunity for the Lincoln based team to participate in these clinics. 

The program provides the full gamut of congenital cardiology services.  We currently have 22 faculty (and growing) including subspecialists in interventional catheterization, axial imaging, electrophysiology, heart failure and transplant, pulmonary hypertension, exercise physiology, and adult congenital heart disease.  We have 3 congenital cardiothoracic surgeons, with dedicated congenital cardiac anesthesia, cardiac intensivists who provide 24/7 care in our newly built, 500-million-dollar expansion to the free-standing Children’s Hospital.  This houses our door-to-door variable acuity cardiac care unit, state of the art MRI, CT and cardiac catheterization. Our adult congenital service is separate from the pediatric service and is fully staffed 24/7 with specialized ACHD physicians at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  We have a categorical cardiology fellowship with a 100% boards success rate, and are highly involved with education of pediatric residents, and medical students.

 

Lincoln has a population of 295,000 and is the state capital. It offers a delightful mix of the amenities, diversity, and culture experience of a large city, with the traffic, cost of living and friendliness of a smaller midwestern community. The city has been thoughtful and proactive in expansion and rejuvenation that includes 172 miles of running and biking trails and 133 parks. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is the state’s flagship campus and is the home of the Big10 conference Nebraska Cornhusker athletic teams. Lincoln boasts a vibrant culinary scene, a lively musical atmosphere, and embraces the fine arts. It has been named one of America’s Healthiest Small Cities, the ninth best place to live and raise a family and Nebraska is ranked #4 in US News & World Report’s Best States rankings. Lincoln has outstanding public and private school systems, and the state is ranked #7 nationally in education.

 

We are committed to increasing diversity in our organizations to reflect the population that we serve and encourage applications from all candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the institution. Nominations, expressions of interest and applications (including cover letter and CV/resume) should be submitted to: Dr. Jeffrey W. Delaney (jdelaney@childrensnebraska.org), Division chief of pediatric cardiology, and/or Jacki Nun, LCSW, Administrator, Physician & Faculty Recruitment at jnun@childrensnebraska.org or 712.251.7444.
