Time as Reported Grade 000 General Pediatrics


We are currently seeking to fill a faculty position in the Division of General Pediatrics at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of the University of Rochester. This is a vibrant multidisciplinary division with approximately 100 faculty, fellow, and staff that participate in active clinical and research programs focusing on improving child health in the local community and beyond. Our pediatric practice is Rochester’s largest pediatric clinic, serving over 13,500 children in the greater Rochester area. We pride ourselves on not just being recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Certified Patient-Centered Medical Home, but helping to translate the principles into practice each day.


We provide outstanding training to house staff, fellows, and medical students in our ambulatory clinical setting. We also have a long-standing and highly successful fellowship program for General Academic Pediatrics and an award winning house staff training program in community pediatrics and child advocacy which is offered through The Hoekelman Center.

The Hoekelman Center houses many activities including the Community Health and Advocacy Resident Education (CARE) Track. CARE Track is an elective two-year longitudinal experience, starting in the second year of residency that begins with a two-week experience (CARE Block) which covers the essentials of health policy, evidence-based public health, cross cultural communication, leadership and other areas. Since CARE Track started, there have been 188 resident participants.

CARE project areas are determined by each resident's interests which may focus on local or global health issues.

For both local and global projects, residents receive mentorship from Hoekelman Center faculty and partner with community-based organizations (CBOs). We are seeking someone to assist with teaching and mentoring global health projects.

The position requires working with the Director of the Community Health and Advocacy Resident Education (CARE) Track.

  • Meet with funders, education specialists, and community resources that specialize or assist with global health projects.

  • Find and collect resources (online or otherwise) for health care professionals interested in global health.

  • Participate in CARE block teaching subjects like global health or public speaking.

  • Coordinate with other global health faculty at URMC regarding evidence-based projects and valued experiences for health care providers in training.

  • Benchmark global health experiences at other residency programs in an effort to further develop the UR Pediatrics global health experience.


All faculty are expected to maintain currency in field through continuing education, literature and seminars. Additionally, faculty may take a role in the development of divisional or departmental policies, procedures and standards. On occasion, faculty may be assigned to divisional, departmental, or faculty committees. Participation in local or regional clinical affairs through membership in clinical societies or specialty governing boards is encouraged.
