The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria (UICOMP) seeks physicians for one position for the Division of Developmental Pediatrics to enhance an important clinical program.
Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician positions require candidates with a MD/DO degree or foreign equivalent, who are BC/BE in pediatrics and developmental/behavioral pediatrics or neuro-developmental pediatrics, eligible for licensure in Illinois and have completed 3 years in residency and 3 years in fellowship training in neuro-developmental disabilities or development-behavioral pediatrics.

Candidates with scholarly and research interests are highly desirable, along with experience in teaching medical students and residents.
An outstanding opportunity exists to immediately assume a leadership role as UICOMP Division Head of Child Development.

UICOMP is one of the regional campuses that make up the nation’s largest public medical school. The Peoria campus is known among students for its small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and hands-on clerkships, to residents and fellows for the strong academic setting, large referral base and exceptional facilities, and by physicians seeking the ideal combination of teaching and practicing medicine in a research-based university setting.
UICOMP’s main clinical partner is CHOI, a 124-bed, full-service hospital, with physicians in more than 115 pediatric specialties and 40+ subspecialties. Located on the campus of OSF St. Francis Medical Center, it’s the pediatric teaching affiliate of UICOMP, the state’s only major pediatric teaching hospital outside Chicago—and home to groundbreaking pediatric research in medicine.
