The Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) within Oregon Health & Science University's (OHSU's) School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics is seeking qualified candidates who are board eligible or board certified in neurodevelopmental disabilities or developmental behavioral pediatrics at the rank of Assistant to Associate . Successful candidates will have strong interest and demonstrated commitment to being effective clinician educators and scholars in serving children and youth with a broad range of neurodevelopmental disabilities. We are also seeking candidates who have the interest and potential to assume leadership responsibilities in service and teaching. In particular, candidates with proven leadership appropriate to serve as the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center's (CDRC's) Eugene Medical Director at the Eugene location are encouraged to apply. The CDRC Eugene Medical Director facilitates and supports the provision of efficient, high quality individual and family centered care to patients with developmental disabilities, complex special health needs, and their families. This individual collaborates closely with IDD senior leadership (including the IDD Director, IDD Administrator, and CDRC Clinical Director), as well as IDD discipline directors (similar to division heads) to execute the Institute's mission at the Eugene location.
IDD is housed within OHU's Department of Pediatrics. Extensive interdisciplinary programs serve children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities, birth anomalies and autism spectrum disorder. IDD also serves as Oregon's Title V program for children and youth with complex special health needs, sponsors one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs), hosts the LEND program and multiple accredited training programs, including fellowships in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities and Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics. The developmental behavioral pediatric fellowship program is based in Eugene, providing opportunities for intensive mentoring. Pediatric residents, medical students, and trainees in other disciplines also rotate at the Eugene campus.
IDD's clinical arm known as the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center, is Oregon's leading academic health organization dedicated to delivering interdisciplinary patient care throughout Oregon and neighboring states. As an important part of this endeavor, the CDRC maintains a well-staffed full time outpatient satellite program in Eugene. We are interested in recruiting a neurodevelopmental disabilities or developmental behavioral pediatrician to Eugene's multi-disciplinary team of physicians, advanced practitioners, and allied health providers. The Eugene office is deeply engaged in innovative educational programs, scholarship, statewide public health efforts, and advocacy activities. We also have an active rural outreach program that serves children in communities where specialized care is rare.
The Eugene CDRC is currently located on University of Oregon's campus, which promotes opportunities of research collaboration. Eugene is a beautiful, affordable university town, with an excellent public school system, nestled in the southern end of the Willamette Valley, an hour's drive to the mountains or coast. In 2024 the program will be moving to a new stand-alone location approximately one mile from the University of Oregon campus. This facility will offer improved accommodations for faculty, patients, and families.
This position is located in Eugene, Oregon.
