The Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina Children's Hospital has an open position for a Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrician. We are actively working to increase access to developmental, behavioral health and mental health care at UNC Children's Hospital. There are a variety of settings in which the D/B faculty member will provide clinical services including direct care in a UNC D/B specialty consultative clinic, as collaborative care team member in the special infant care clinic, and working in the TEACCH program. These clinics often include either students or residents on the D/B rotation and the faculty person will be able to assume a leadership role in resident D/B education. Finally, additional opportunities depending on the faculty member's interest and expertise include precepting in the resident continuity clinic to integrate D/B training into primary care teaching and/or joining collaborative care teams at Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities. UNC has tremendous institutional resources to contribute to professional growth and enrichment through the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities, the highest funded autism research center in the country, a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program, and the TEACCH program. The position will be located in the Development, Behavior and Learning Section of the General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine division. In addition to D/B, this division includes primary care clinics, Child Abuse pediatrics, Adolescent Medicine and other affiliated specialty services. The division employs psychologists and social workers and works closely with child psychiatry and other specialties through the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities. The division has a nationally-known and productive research program and a long record of teaching excellence. The Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina is an attractive place to live and work with great climate, schools, and both mountains and beach within a day drive.
