Description

The Department of Surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) are currently seeking applicants for a congenital cardiac surgeon to work within the section in the Division of Cardiac Surgery. The search will focus on identifying an accomplished and ABTS certified surgeon with a full spectrum skill set ranging from neonatal surgery to complex congenital transplantation to complex adult congenital surgery.

The UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital continues to be at the forefront of congenital heart surgery in Southern California and nationwide. Our surgical team works collaboratively with the interventional cardiology team to perform ground-breaking "hybrid" procedures on select patients to provide a less invasive treatment for congenital heart and valvular disease. The Division of Cardiac Surgery maintains one of the largest adult congenital programs, with excellence in cardiac transplantation.

The program highly values collaborative and constructive work between multiple medical disciplines. The candidate must possess the ability to be adaptive, work in more than one location, and provide a value added contribution beyond the clinical role in one or more of the following domains: innovation, education, research, leadership, and enterprise growth. Clinical effectiveness and teamwork ability will be required to meet the highest standard. Additional requirements include an MD Degree (or equivalent) and eligibility for a California medical license. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with accomplishment.

The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.
