As the nation’s leader in pediatric leadership executive search, MillicanSolutions has partnered with the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP) to identify a new Head of the Department of Pediatrics

The Head of the Department of Pediatrics (equivalent to Chair, Pediatrics in other academic institutions) will serve as the academic, clinical, and administrative leader of the Department, which consists of approximately 145 faculty members in 19 divisions and provides general pediatric and subspecialty services to the pediatric population in Central Illinois.  As the Head of the Department, the incoming candidate will be responsible for building a nationally recognized program in children’s health through the recruitment, retention and development of existing faculty. The Head of the Department of Pediatrics will additionally be responsible for making sure the Department’s strategic vision and values are aligned with both UICOMP and OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois (CHOI). This leadership position offers an opportunity to strengthen and grow the pediatrics clinical enterprise, enhance the collaborative research environment and expand graduate medical education at UICOMP.

UICOMP seeks an individual who is a collaborative and visionary leader, has strong record in academic medicine, and administrative experience as a division chief or program leadership. The ideal candidate should have leadership skills as a listener, team player, and decision maker. UICOMP seeks a leader who understands the future of pediatrics and child health and will serve as a strong advocate for pediatrics care, medical education and pediatrics related research. Qualified individuals must be a MD or MD/PhD with sustained record of scholarly activity, be at rank of Associate Professor or Professor, be board certified in Pediatrics and eligible for medical licensure in Illinois.

Located in Peoria, IL, UICOMP is one of four regional campuses that make up one of the nation’s largest public medical schools, and is part of a 900 bed hospital district containing two hospital systems as well as a medical school.  UICOMP’s educational programs include 244 medical students and 300 residents/fellows training in 13 ACGME-accredited residency programs and 8 ACGME-accredited fellowships.  The Peoria campus is known among medical students for its small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and hands-on clerkships: by residents and fellows for the strong academic setting, large referral base and exceptional facilities; and by physicians seeking the ideal combination of teaching and practicing medicine in a research-based university setting.

OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois is a 136 bed full-service children’s hospital that serves as the pediatric teaching affiliate of UICOMP.  The OSF Children’s Hospital is home to more than 145 pediatric sub-specialists practicing in 40+ subspecialties.  It has 64 neonatal beds, 8 level II nursery beds, 32 pediatric critical care beds, 16 pediatric oncology beds and 16 general pediatric beds.  OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois is the only Level IV neonatal intensive care unit outside Chicago and the Regional Perinatal Center for Central Illinois.  It is home to the first state-designated Level I Pediatric Trauma Center in downstate Illinois and houses the Jim and Trudy Maloof St. Jude affiliate, a program providing care for children with oncological and hematological disorders with state-of-the-art protocols from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Children’s Oncology Group.

In addition, this department provides other key clinical services including the Cystic Fibrosis Center (one of 115 accredited centers in the US), Hemoglobinopathy/Sickle Cell Program and the Pediatrics Resource Center (PRC). The PRC combines medical and social services in the evaluation and treatment of children suspected of physical abuse, sexual abuse and /or neglected children. The medical school is a partner in the new 67,000 square foot Jump Simulation Center (www.jumpsimulation.org) offering some truly unique opportunities for innovative curriculum.

A full description of the position is posted at https://searches.med.wayne.edu/vp-dean.  

A key objective for the University involves the further integrated development of an academic health sciences center to enhance partnerships among the University’s health affairs schools and colleges and existing and potential health care provider partners.  The Vice President for Health Affairs and Dean of the School of Medicine will lead this initiative in collaboration with key institutional leaders. The successful candidate will have the special opportunity to: a) shape the future of a School of Medicine uniquely positioned for broad impact across all aspects of its mission; b) lead an interprofessional team to enhance cross-disciplinary collaboration that advances the health affairs-related mission of the University; c) collaborate with key stakeholders to develop new methods of research, education and care delivery that serve as a global model for urban-based academic health centers; and, d) make signature contributions to the role of academic health centers and the public health mission in urban environments.

President M. Roy Wilson, a highly regarded physician-scientist and member of the National Academy of Medicine, became the 12th president of Wayne State University in 2013, and the university has experienced dramatic growth across all aspects of its mission during his tenure. The vision and focus for the university as it works closely with the broad communities that it serves is captured in its five-year strategic plan (https://strategicplan.wayne.edu/download/strategic-plan.pdf). 

Thirteen schools and colleges present the university’s comprehensive academic offerings: Mike Ilitch School of Business; College of Education; College of Engineering; College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts; Graduate School; Law School; College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; School of Information Science; School of Medicine; College of Nursing; Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences; Irvin D. Reid Honors College; and the School of Social Work. Wayne State University is also home to the Perinatology Research Branch of the National Institutes of Health and to the Karmanos Cancer Institute, a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. 

Throughout its history, the university has provided students from all backgrounds the opportunity to enjoy a high-quality education that enables them to realize their full potential. The rich, multicultural environment at the university prepares students for success and leadership in a diverse, global society and enriches the communities it serves. The university’s faculty and staff have provided an excellent educational experience for hundreds of thousands of students, who have contributed to the region and nation in every field of endeavor, including as corporate chief executive officers, government leaders, judges, teachers, policy makers, university presidents, astronauts, scientists, physicians, writers and actors. 

Detroit, with its reputation for innovation, is at an exciting point, with many rapidly expanding development activities underway. Its vibrant downtown and cultural center envelop the Wayne State University campus, which plays a key role in the rapidly accelerating forward growth of the city. With immediate proximity to Canada and its location in the middle of the Great Lakes region, as well as several professional sports teams, an opera and a world-renowned symphony, Detroit and the metropolitan area (~5 million population) provide a rich culture with exceptional recreational and entertainment activities. Midtown is one of the country's fastest-growing neighborhoods. The campus includes 200 acres of green space, walking paths and state-of-the-art facilities surrounded by renowned cultural institutions and industry-leading employers. Every day, Wayne State students and faculty participate in the reinvention of a great American city as they live, learn, work and play in the heart of Detroit.
