Function/Duties of Position
The Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) of the 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 Professor. Successful candidates will have strong interest and demonstrated commitment to being successful clinician educators and scholars in serving children and youth with a broad range of neurodevelopmental disabilities. We are seeking candidates who have the interest and potential to assume leadership responsibilities in service and teaching. In particular, candidates with appropriate proven leadership appropriate to serve as CDRC Eugene Medical Director 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 (akin to division heads) to execute the Institute's mission in the Eugene location. This position is based in our Eugene, Oregon clinic.
IDD functions within the Department of Pediatrics at OHSU. Extensive interdisciplinary programs serve children, youth, and adults 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. The IDD sponsors one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs), and has had a longstanding commitment to training the next generation of leaders. The Institute hosts a LEND program, and multiple accredited training programs including accredited fellowships in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities and Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics. The DBP Fellowship is based in Eugene, providing opportunities for intensive mentoring. Pediatric residents, medical students, and trainees of many other disciplines participate in rotations at the Eugene campus.
The IDD's clinical service, the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC), is Oregon's leading academic health organization dedicated to delivering inter-disciplinary patient care throughout Oregon and neighboring states. As an important part of this endeavor, the CDRC maintains a well-staffed outpatient satellite program in Eugene. We are interested in adding a NDD or DBP physician to our current staff in Eugene. Our team includes 3 DB peds, a PNP, an interdisciplinary team of psychology, PT, OT SLP and a dietician. We also have a community Health Worker and LPN position to provide care coordination to families. 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, serving children in communities where specialized care is rare.
The Eugene CDRC is located on University of Oregon campus, which adds greatly to 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 each from the mountains and from the coast.
This position is located in Eugene, Oregon.
