The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and the Department of Physiatry at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) are seeking a board certified or board eligible pediatric physiatrist for a joint faculty position. The successful candidate will expand a small existing pediatric PM&R practice at Weill Cornell/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and establish a pediatric PM&R service at HSS. The position will combine clinical care, teaching of residents, fellows and medical students, and opportunities for clinical research. A pediatric rehabilitation fellowship is well-established at the NYP/Columbia campus jointly with Blythedale Children’s Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and we anticipate expansion of the fellowship to include rotations at HSS and/or Weill Cornell at the appropriate time.

The patient population will include children with cerebral palsy, other neurological disorders, and children with other disabling illnesses or injuries. A close working relationship with the pediatric orthopedic surgery division at HSS is planned. The position will focus on ambulatory care, with some component of hospital-based consultation. Dr. Heakyung Kim serves as the Director of Pediatric PM&R for the Columbia/Cornell departments of rehabilitation medicine.

The pediatric physiatrist will join more than 35 full-time physiatrists at HSS and Weill Cornell, and collaborate with three full-time pediatric physiatrists at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center

This position will include an academic appointment at Weill Cornell Medical College commensurate with experience and academic accomplishment.
