Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati Children’s) and the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati seek a Chair of Pediatrics, Director of the Research Foundation and Chief Medical Officer (CMO). Working collaboratively with Cincinnati Children’s and medical school leadership, the Chair will lead one of the largest and most complex pediatric departments in the country, one that is consistently ranked among the top three children’s hospitals nationally.

Today the Department of Pediatrics counts 753 faculty across 42 divisions. In addition to the role of Chair of Pediatrics, the Chair will serve as the Chief Medical Officer and the Director of the Research Foundation, one of the largest pediatric research programs in the country. Few positions have this scope and the assets, talents, and culture to positively impact the health of children.

The Chair will drive innovations that accelerate excellence in clinical care, scientific research, educational programs, and community impact. In a dynamic healthcare and biomedical environment, they will set an innovative course for the long-term growth and fiscal vitality of the Department – recruiting and retaining exceptional faculty, striving for continuous improvement in quality of care, identifying emerging and new areas of emphasis and promise, advocating for world-class educational programming, and facilitating clinical expansion.

The successful candidate will be an accomplished leader in academic pediatrics. The Chair will bring the experience to guide a complex and large department with multiple subcultures across clinical, educational, and academic research missions and the ability to synthesize these missions into a cohesive whole. An ethos of working collaboratively with both senior and divisional leadership is a must. Importantly, they must demonstrate a personal style that facilitates communication, collaboration, trust, credibility, and confidence among faculty and across Cincinnati Children’s.
