Pediatric Palliative Care Physician

The Palliative Care Team (PaCT) at Children’s Mercy Kansas City is seeking to add a board-eligible/board-certified pediatric palliative care physician to its team.  Candidates who have completed a palliative medicine fellowship are preferred.

Responsibilities of the position include attending on the palliative care consultation services and participating in educational and research activities.  The opportunity exists for protected time for teaching, research and program development.

The current team is comprised of five registered nurses with specialized training and expertise in palliative care, two physicians who are fellowship trained and board certified in palliative care, and a pediatric palliative care fellow. Expansion in our health care system, including the recent addition of our Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center, has also expanded the opportunities for the PaCT.

Academic appointment is with the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, where we are the primary pediatric teaching site for students, residents, and fellows. Salary and academic rank are commensurate with experience.  EOE/M/F/VET/Disabled
