Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York/Northwell Health System
Cohen Children’s/Northwell Health is currently recruiting highly motivated, clinically and academically driven pediatric urologists to join our rapidly growing service. Cohen’s is consistently the highest ranked pediatric urology service in New York by USNWR and the only one with an ACGME-accredited Fellowship program that started in 1993. We train residents from several NY residency programs and have supported over one dozen residents to pursue fellowship training in pediatric urology. We have a close relationship with our adult colleagues led by Dr. Louis Kavoussi.
Cohen’s is a 202-bed hospital which opened in 1983 as the New York metropolitan area's only hospital designed exclusively for children. Today, we are the largest provider of pediatric health services in the state of New York, serving 1.8 million children in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties and expanding into New York City and outer suburbs.
Northwell Health is New York State's largest healthcare provider and private employer, with more than 68,000 employees. Northwell is home to 23 hospitals, over 700 outpatient facilities, the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra /Northwell, and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
The Division of Pediatric Urology has a long and proud history and is currently in a new phase of growth. The footprint of the Northwell Health System continues to grow offering opportunities in the immediate Long Island and local areas. State-of-the-art resources, including new operating rooms, Da Vinci Xi, and urodynamic equipment in addition to a vibrant Cohen’s faculty, offer a superior environment in which to provide comprehensive quality care for children, adolescents, and adults with congenital urologic conditions. We are seeking highly qualified and self-motivated individuals of all academic rank to join the current faculty in providing clinical care and to grow professionally in academic medicine.

Diversity and Health Equity:
Northwell Health is committed to training, supporting, and nurturing physicians from all backgrounds. We fully understand that diversity is integral for our institutional excellence and a means to attaining health equity. As a result, our diversity and inclusion efforts are a part of everything we do, from education, to clinical care, to research, to physician well-being. Diversity and inclusion permeates our educational and clinical initiatives. We have set a goal to make sure every one of our physicians receives training on how to deliver high quality, culturally competent care. Our recent educational areas of focus have been on social determinants of health, community engagement, and developing a medical-legal partnership for our physicians-in-training. One of our many strengths is our diverse patient population and our expectation is that our diverse patient populations receive equitable care, irrespective of who they are. As a result, we continually recruit a diverse physician workforce to meet the needs of our diverse patients.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. Physicians are employed through Northwell Health Physician Partners, one of the largest medical groups in the country.
