Your expertise and contribution will be instrumental in providing comprehensive care to our patients.

This position also includes inpatient consultative services, as well as an outpatient continuity clinic. You will have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on the lives of our patients, both within the hospital setting and in the community.

You will hold an appointment in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine, further enhancing your professional development and academic opportunities.
