We offer integrated, family-centered care to more than 300,000 children each year in our pediatric hospitals, specialty clinics and primary care practices in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Nemours strives to ensure a healthier tomorrow for all children – even those who may never enter our doors – through our world-changing research, education and advocacy efforts. At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own.

Nemours is seeking a Developmental Pediatrician to join our team in Delaware.

This exceptional opportunity includes a faculty appointment through Jefferson Medical College and a key role in a four-physician division with nursing supports. The primary focus will be non-autism related patient care and elevating the research profile of the division. Special strengths of our program include diagnostic clinics targeting autism, attention deficit disorders, cerebral palsy, dysphagia and early childhood development. We serve as a regional referral center for children with developmental problems, as well as the center of the teaching program in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics for medical students and pediatric residents.

You’ll be a part of our larger Department of Pediatrics consisting of full- and part-time clinical faculty with a wide variety of clinical and basic research projects supported in part by the Nemours Foundation.

The ideal candidate will be expected to secure external funding within 3-5 years of hire.
