Section Chief, Pediatric Neurology
The Section of Pediatric Neurology at Dartmouth Health Children's and The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth seeks its next Section Chief of Pediatric Neurology. This individual will oversee and develop the clinical and academic missions of the Section, including its educational and research activities.
Anchored by CHaD - Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) - New Hampshire's only children's hospital, Dartmouth Health Children's is the pediatric service of Dartmouth Health, an integrated academic healthcare delivery system for northern New England headquartered in Lebanon, New Hampshire. DHMC is recognized by US News & World Report as the #1 Hospital in NH and is home to the Dartmouth Cancer Center (a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center) and the renowned Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
Dartmouth Health Children's provides an extended system of care with primary, specialty, and advanced tertiary pediatric services, including an inpatient pediatric unit with PICU and a level III NICU at CHaD and a comprehensive ambulatory specialty center at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic in Manchester, the largest city in the state.
The Section of Pediatric Neurology provides strong programs in general clinical pediatric neurology, pediatric neuro-oncology, neuro-metabolic and neuro-degenerative diseases; and a center of excellence in pediatric epilepsy in conjunction with the Dartmouth Health Department of Neurology, which boasts the only NAEC level 4 epilepsy center in New Hampshire.
Teaching residents and medical students is expected, so eligibility for academic appointment at The Geisel School of Medicine is required, at a rank commensurate with experience and academic portfolio. Opportunities for clinical, translational, and health services research exist for the interested candidate. Candidate requirements include fellowship training and board certification in pediatric neurology, demonstrated leadership experience, organizational and mentoring skills and a record of significant scholarly achievement.
Physicians at Dartmouth Health Children's enjoy the rare opportunity to combine high level academic medicine with a serene and stress-free living environment. Lebanon is part of the Upper Connecticut River Valley, home to Dartmouth College and its abundant cultural and enrichment activities. Greater Manchester is often ranked among the best small cities in the United States for quality of life. With destinations like Boston, New York, Montreal, the seacoast and ski country within driving distance, this is the ideal place to work, live, and play.
