Pediatric Endocrinology Clinical Faculty Physician in Michigan
StartDate: ASAP Pay Rate: $.00
Merritt Hawkins has partnered with the Department of Pediatrics at Western Michigan University Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine (WMed) in the recruitment of a board eligible or board-certified Pediatric Endocrinologist to join its growing academic department. The department has approximately 60 community-based and 20 full-time academic employed faculty members. The pediatric residency program is a fully accredited program with all subspecialty care and tertiary care capabilities. There are 24 categorical pediatric and 16 medicine-pediatric residents.
WMed is one of the few U.S. medical schools in several decades to be built from the ground up. Established in 2012, WMed is a private nonprofit medical school located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is a collaboration between a top-100 public University in WMU and Kalamazoo's two award-winning teaching hospitals, Borgess Health and Bronson Healthcare. In 2011, Western Michigan University received a gift of $100 million for the medical school from the Stryker family, and much of these resources went towards building what is today a beautiful state-of-the-art medical school facility. There is also a new state-of-the-art Simulation Center to promote SBL curriculum with 8 simulation rooms, procedure labs, task trainer rooms, 12 standardized patient exam rooms, and 6 classrooms. We are excited to graduate the WMed charter class of 2018 this coming summer!
