Job Description

We’re saving lives, building careers, and reimagining healthcare. We can’t wait to grow alongside you.

Tufts Medical Center  is looking for a Mid-Career Academic  Neonatologist  to join its team at an Assistant or Associate Professor level.

Tufts Medicine with Boston Children’s Hospital is reimagining pediatric care to meet new and emerging community needs.  In joining together, we are pushing the boundaries and expand/improve access and equity through the creation of a shared and sustainable model of comprehensive pediatric care throughout Eastern Massachusetts. The core of this collaboration is our physicians that are part of the Boston Children’s Network Specialty (BCNSP) Foundation and we will maintain our mutual commitment to research and training the next generation of clinicians. This   role will be within the Tufts Neonatal Network, including the Level 3 NICU at Tufts Medical Center and five affiliated Level 2 Special Care Nurseries (approximately 1,200 admissions/year), with an academic appointment at Tufts University School of Medicine.

Why join our team:   

As a tertiary center, our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a top choice for critically ill neonates throughout New England. Staffed by physicians and nurses, our  Newborn Transport service  shuttles approximately 250 neonates in need of a higher level of care from our affiliates and other community hospitals to our Boston NICU each year. Once here, neonates receive the most advanced medical-surgical treatments including the latest ventilation techniques, hypothermia for Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy, and sophisticated surgical approaches (such as mandibular distraction osteogenesis) that are not widely available elsewhere in Massachusetts. Our fellowship program is very strong with eight fellows training at Tufts and Boston Children’s Hospital. Our academic program is nationally recognized with major awards funded by NIH and FDA for genome sequencing, real world data, and novel device development. Our Clinical and Translational Science Award program was just renewed by NCATS for seven years (22 years of continuous funding).
