The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and Kravis Children’s Hospital in the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) are conducting a national search for an inaugural Chief of Pediatric Clinical Genomic Medicine as well as head of the research-based Pediatric Precision Medicine Program within the Mindich Child Health and Development Institute (MCHDI, https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/mindich). The incoming Chief will oversee the development of a multidisciplinary, collaborative program to bring the power of genomic translation and discovery to improving clinical care, whether for children with undiagnosed genetic conditions or with parents with family history of a genetic disorder, or as routine part of patient care. Relatedly, this person will oversee and expand the existing research portfolio in pediatric genomic/precision medicine under the aegis of the MCHDI.
The children’s health research initiative at the ISMMS is extended by close collaboration with a number of Departments and Institutes, including the Division of Medical Genetics in the
Department of Genetics & Genomic Sciences (https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/genomics), the Division of Genomic Medicine in the Department of Medicine (https://icahn.mssm.edu/about/departments/medicine/genomic-medicine), the Institute for Genomic Health (https://sinaigenomichealth.org/), the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine (https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/ipm), the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology (https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/genomics/about/faculty/institute), the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health (https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/exposomic) and Institute for Exposomic Research (https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/exposomic), the Department of Population Health Science and Policy (https://icahn.mssm.edu/about/departments/population-health), and ConduITS (our Clinical and Translational Science Award Institute).
The Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital, located at the juncture of the Manhattan’s Upper East Side and East Harlem, has a long and distinguished tradition of excellence in clinical/translational and basic research, as well as in innovative patient care, professional education, and community involvement. The 190 faculty in the Department of Pediatrics, representing the full range of pediatric subspecialties, oversee 2800 inpatient admissions per year. Extramural research funding exceeds $20 million at present, placing the Department in the top 15% of pediatric departments nationwide. Our pediatric residency program hosts 21 PGY-1 positions, including categorical pediatrics, research residents, Triple Board (pediatrics, psychiatry, and child psychiatry), Medical Genetics Pediatric Combined Program, and our new Medicine-Pediatrics Combined Residency.
The MSHS is the largest health system in NY State. Within the MSHS, the Mount Sinai Medical Center encompasses the Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) and the ISMMS. MSH, founded in 1852, serves one of the most diverse and complex patient populations in the world. The ISMMS, which opened its doors in 1968 (and was recently renamed in 2013), has a long and distinguished tradition of excellence in clinical/translational and basic research, as well as in innovative patient care, professional education, and community involvement. The ISMMS ranks among the top 15 U.S. medical schools in NIH research funding and was ranked 12th in the most recent (2019-20) U.S. News and World Report’ survey of America’s Best Graduate Schools.
Qualified candidates interested in this opportunity should send a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to the Chair of the Department of Pediatrics, Lisa M. Satlin, MD, at email@example.com.
