Job Details: Congenital Heart has been the premier Congenital Cardiology Practice in the state of Maine for over 50 years. We are excited to announce that Congenital Heart is partnering with Maine Medical Partners and MaineHealth to continue providing state-of-the-art care for children and adults with congenital heart disease. This partnership will form the new Division of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Care at Maine Medical Center. Commensurate with this partnership is the opportunity to expand with the addition of three Pediatric Cardiologists:
BC non-invasive Pediatric Cardiologist with at least 6-8 years of clinical experience in a busy clinical/academic center with expertise and advanced training in echocardiography (fetal, TTE and TEE) with the ability to provide imaging and related consultation in the operating room and catheterization laboratory. This individual should possess leadership skills and desire to advance into leadership positions within the division. This individual would also be expected to develop a practice of congenital heart patients and provide care for them in the outpatient setting. This may include outreach clinics throughout the state of Maine and Northern New Hampshire although this would constitute less than 10% of practice time. A research interest is encouraged with opportunities for collaboration with established research institutes like the Maine Medical Cardiovascular Research Institute (MMCRI). Call responsibilities include being a congenital consultant in the post-operative PICU, caring for service patients on the ward, and fielding calls from outpatients in our practice and from ER’s throughout the state.
Candidates will join 4 other Pediatric Cardiologists, who have established the only comprehensive Congenital Heart program in the state of Maine. The program has recently hired an experienced surgeon to serve as the Director of Congenital Cardiac Surgery. After providing comprehensive congenital surgical care in the state for the past 25 years, the new Director will ensure the infrastructure is in place to continue providing excellent surgical care. Comprehensive interventional services have been provided for over 20 years with all FDA-approved devices and procedures, including transcatheter pulmonary valve insertion being performed. The program also performs state-of-the-art imaging including fetal, TTE, TEE, CMRI and CTA.
Inpatient responsibilities are at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, a 96-bed hospital within Maine Medical Center – the tertiary medical center for children serving the state of Maine and southern and eastern New Hampshire. The Children’s Hospital medical staff represents all of the pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties that provide comprehensive services for children, including trauma care, surgery for congenital heart disease and renal transplantation.
Maine Medical Center (MMC) has 637 licensed beds and is the state’s leading tertiary care hospital and Level One Trauma Center, with a full complement of Residencies and Fellowships and an integral part of Tufts University Medical School.

Just two hours north of Boston, this is an exceptionally diverse and vibrant community.
