Employment Opportunity

Academic Pediatric Dermatologist

The University of Oklahoma Department of Dermatology

The University of Oklahoma Department of Dermatology in Oklahoma City has an exciting opportunity for a pediatric dermatologist. After building a very successful pediatric dermatology service, our pediatric dermatologist recently left the full-time faculty. We have a fully-equipped, dedicated pediatric dermatology clinic in a pediatric specialty clinic outpatient area, but under the Department of Dermatology, which needs a new director. There will be significant freedom for the new director to creatively develop the pediatric clinical, teaching and academic dermatology service.

The Chair of Dermatology is dedicated to building a fulfilling practice for this new faculty member, tailored to both the department’s clinical needs and the physician’s interests. For a candidate with a well-established career, appointment to an endowed chair is available. The development of a pediatric dermatology fellowship is also possible. For a candidate just finishing a pediatric dermatology fellowship, this is an opportunity to grow into and assume such a leadership position. The position is structured to allow 20% of time for academic pursuits and 80% for clinical. Faculty are financially supported by the institution during their academic time. Academic appointment will be commensurate with experience and compensation is very competitive. A generous fringe benefit package includes the availability of a defined benefit retirement plan. The Department and the University are very family friendly.

The Department of Dermatology at the University of Oklahoma is celebrating its 100th anniversary. It is housed in a free-standing building which includes clinical, administrative and academic space. The Department is a vibrant organization with ACGME approval for 9 dermatology residents. The faculty consist of full, part-time and volunteer members and will welcome and support a new pediatric dermatologist. A receptive dermatologic community in Oklahoma and Oklahoma City and a low cost of living add additional enjoyment to the practice.
