The Division is currently comprised of 52 core (permanently employed) physicians and a large pool of active PRN physicians. We experience an average daily census of 126 patients system wide.   The hospitalist program at our Egleston Hospital was started by Joseph A. Snitzer, III, in 1983, and was one of the first of its kind. All pediatric hospitalists are faculty members of Emory University's Department of Pediatrics and have clinical privileges at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The team specializes in delivering and coordinating the clinical care of hospitalized children, but also has responsibilities in medical education, quality improvement, discharge planning and clinical research.   The hospitalist program at our Scottish Rite Hospital was started in the spring of 1992 by Dr. Richard Kenny and Dr. Dennis Sullivan. At that time, most patients admitted at Scottish Rite were cared for by their own private physicians. Therefore, the hospitalist program was initially developed as a consultative service to assist these physicians. It was also designed to provide inpatient care for patients with a primary care physician unable to care for them during a hospital admission, such as physicians outside the Atlanta metropolitan area or family practitioners without privileges at Scottish Rite.   The hospitalist program at our Hughes Spalding Hospital is managed separately by Emory University’s Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. Division of Hospital Medicine faculty provide clinical coverage at Hughes Spalding. The Division Chief will work collaboratively with the Division Chief of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine to ensure patient care and quality goals are achieved.   Over the next five years, around 1,500 contacts were made in offices and clinics all over Georgia educating clinicians that Scottish Rite had grown beyond its initial role as an orthopedic facility and that a hospitalist service was available to care for their patients during their hospital stay.   In addition to staffing the Egleston and Scottish Rite inpatient units 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our hospitalists provide consultations to surgical and other subspecialty teams who require assistance. Our goal is to create a partnership between our team of hospitalists and community physicians to facilitate transition of care.   Our Pediatric Hospitalist fellowship program was started in 2006. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and offers a two-year training program for care of hospitalized children. The program also includes training and experience in clinical, epidemiological, and quality research with mentorship both within and external to the PHM Division. Fellows have opportunities to pursue research projects through established collaborations with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health, as well as through collaborations with the Divisions in the Department of Pediatrics and School of Medicine.   The PHM faculty educate residents from the Emory University pediatric residency program, the Morehouse School of Medicine pediatric residency program, and residency programs within the Atlanta metropolitan region.   Procedure for Candidacy Qualified candidates should complete the online application and upload a CV. Inquiries should be sent to to Mark Lotz, Children’s Director of Executive and Physician Recruiting, via email at mark.lotz@choa.org.     Additional Information The Emory + Children’s Pediatric Institute is an affiliation between Emory University and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta that is improving the lives of children in Georgia and beyond. The Pediatric Institute combines the unique strengths and resources of each institution in support of our three-part academic missions of providing outstanding clinical care, conducting innovative basic science discovery and clinical research, and coordinating exceptional education of the future healthcare workforce. Our physicians, researchers, and educators have created a model where leadership, commitment and quality are fundamental components of success. Together, we are transforming pediatrics by achieving new levels of clinical excellence—driven by research, teaching and wellness. We look forward to our future together.

Behavioral and mental health (BMH) is increasingly becoming one of the most pressing pediatric health issues in the U.S. At least one in five children and adolescents in the U.S. has a behavioral or mental health condition. Left untreated, these conditions limit a child’s potential, and may even lead to death by suicide. Recognizing the magnitude of this challenge, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has initiated an historic commitment to the behavioral and mental health of children throughout its health system. Alongside our community, Children’s has developed a plan to support the mental health and development of the population of 1.5 million children in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The plan is about thinking big, starting small but moving quickly—all while scaling successful ideas and leveraging community partnerships to maximize impact. Through the implementation of the comprehensive evidence base of clinical mental health care of children, the overarching goal is to reduce the rates of impairing psychiatric conditions of childhood, offset substance use and suicide risk among children and adolescents, and increase the proportion of children whose lives are characterized by resilience and wellbeing. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s) and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory are seeking a corps of 4 junior faculty child and adolescent psychiatrists to augment our existing multidisciplinary team of clinicians dedicated to behavioral and mental health, currently numbering over 100 professionals.

Responsibilities - Clinical responsibilities for 47 weeks/year. - Clinical Outpatient: a minimum of 4 days per week and 1 day of indirect patient care or program development and/or academic activities. - Once a month participation in weekend call from home, consisting of occasional telehealth responsibility and clinical guidance to on call Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners. - Clinical care includes evaluation and comprehensive intervention planning, oversight of case management for patients, leadership of clinical teams, and supervision of trainees. - Clinics to be held at outpatient sites of the Behavioral and Mental Health Division and related facilities of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. - Participation in a model of care that is organized according to the needs of children and families, and is seamlessly coordinated with internal and community-based professionals comprising the relevant constellation of services across the specialties of psychiatry, psychology social work and other disciplines. A standard of every aspect of clinical service expansion is that care will be delivered equitably (representative of the population and without regard to payor source) to the children of metropolitan Atlanta and by extension, the state of Georgia. - Participation in Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Children’s Care Network Activities (e.g. quality forum, QI initiatives) that are required for quality assurance and to remain a member in good standing. - Demonstrate a pattern of excellence in clinical care. - Education of pre-doctoral interns, post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, and students in child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, medicine and other health-related professions during usual conduct of care. - Participation at team conferences and meetings About Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta The mission of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow.
