Focus on the retention and development of faculty. Children’s Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine In 2021, more than 218,000 patients were treated at the three campuses of Children’s. Emergency care is provided by two distinct groups, faculty of the Emory Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Emergency Medicine Associates (PEMA), a private practice group. Though care delivered by these groups is provided at different locations in the System, PEMA and the Division have a history of productive interaction and collaboration, and there is a deliberate focus on advancing the alignment and culture of excellence of emergency care delivery across Children’s. Multiple learners, including 250 residents and 11 fellows, rotate through the Egleston, Hughes Spalding, Scottish Rite, and Grady EDs. The Egleston Campus, which opened in 1984, is home to the first and only state-designated Level I pediatric trauma center in Georgia. The facility has 45 ED beds, and it is located on the Emory University campus in the Decatur/Druid Hills area of Atlanta. The ED is comprised of a high performing group of professionals with a reputation as a premier provider of emergency care across the country. The Egleston ED is staffed by faculty of the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Division of Emory’s Department of Pediatrics (see below for further details). In 2021, we treated over 70,000 patients in our Egleston ED. The Egleston Campus will close when the Arthur M. Blank Hospital opens in the fall of 2024. The Emory Division of Emergency Medicine strives for excellence in the tripartite missions of clinical care, teaching and scholarship. The Division has been a Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) center since 2019, and it has been a leading enrollment site in many studies. In addition, it has numerous federal, foundation and industry sponsored trials. Areas of focus include: injury prevention, quality improvement, sickle cell management, global health, simulation, concussion care, and serving the underserved. The Hughes Spalding Campus is centrally located in downtown Atlanta. The campus continues to see significant growth in volume and will be expanding the ED from 29 to 39 beds this year. Physician staffing is provided by the Emory Pediatric EM Division. In 2021 we treated over 50,000 patient in the Hughes Spalding ED. The Scottish Rite Campus contains the state’s only Level II pediatric trauma center. It is close to I-285 and GA-400 in the Perimeter/Dunwoody area of Atlanta. The ED has 61 beds, with the ability to flex up to 77 beds and an additional 14 patient care spaces if needed. In 2021, the Scottish Rite ED saw over 96,000 patients. The ED is staffed by PEMA, which was incorporated in 2000 but established in 1984 when the leadership at Scottish Rite Children's Hospital recognized the need for a pediatric emergency room.   Under the leadership of Dr. Joseph Simon, Atlanta's first free-standing, exclusively pediatric emergency facility was established in July of 1984, which was four years before pediatric emergency medicine was recognized as a specialty with board certification. Initially staffed by four pediatric trained physicians with a special interest in acute care, the service has grown to over 100 physicians and advanced practice providers; it also includes a procedural sedation service. The Scottish Rite campus has consistently remained in the top quartile of all benchmarks related to throughput and left without being seen. ED throughput, patient experience, left without being seen rates and clinical quality metrics are benchmarks for the rest of the country. The new Chief will be charged with the continued enhancement of efficiencies and processes of care across the enterprise. For more information on Children’s please visit www.choa.org.

Marcus Autism Center is conducting a search for a doctoral-level clinician (i.e., psychologist or BCBA-D) with specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and early treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children to provide clinical care and to support the growth of our Language and Learning Clinic (LLC). This position primarily focuses on providing clinical care, as well as clinical case management and supervision of Master’s-level Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) providing intervention to children targeting core symptoms of autism. Children seen in the program receive 1:1 intervention delivered by Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) for 6 hours/day, 5 days/week in a clinic setting. The program emphasizes early and focused treatment targeting social communication, play skills, and foundational learning skills, as well as reducing barriers to learning (e.g., limited reinforcers, mild to moderate problem behavior). Caregivers are active participants in their child’s intervention and receive training on how to promote and generalize skills into the home. The goal for each child admitted to the LLC is for them to acquire the critical skills they need to thrive in a less intensive setting. The LLC relies on the principles of ABA to inform treatment strategies, and utilizes a developmentally-appropriate approach to targeting skill acquisition. The program also has several active ongoing research projects investigating the most effective and efficient ways to improve functioning of autistic children and reduce barriers to learning (e.g. conditioning reinforcers). We are seeking individuals who are interested in joining a dedicated team of professionals seeking to provide the highest quality care to children with ASD.

Focus on the retention and development of attending physicians.   Children’s Division of Hospital Medicine In 2021, Children’s Division of Hospital Medicine physicians cared for more than 44,500 patients across our system. 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.
