Child Health Practice

For more than 20 years, CareerPhysician has had unprecedented success in supporting the critical talent needs of children’s hospitals. Academic pediatric executive search assignments are the foundation of our firm. It is where we planted our roots and grew both unparalleled search execution experience and a true passion for academic pediatrics. Our team has successfully completed 400+ academic search and leadership engagements.

Since our inception, we have been committed to the success and strategic growth of our department of pediatrics and children’s hospital client partners. No one understands the unique culture and challenges facing children’s hospitals and pediatrics academic departments better than we do.

Our tailored, culture-oriented approach enables us to recruit and develop physician leaders who have indelible impacts on the patients, families and communities they serve.

In our partnership with our Child Health Advisory Council, we are able to provide our clients with the expert insight, wisdom, and consultation of former pediatric chairs, chiefs and hospital executives representing more than 100 years of pediatric leadership experience.

Together, we are committed to empowering physician leaders with the necessary knowledge and perspective to thrive in their leadership endeavors. It is our passion.

Children’s Hospitals and Departments of Pediatrics rely on our innovative platforms for passive candidate engagement and an unmatched track record for completing complex academic search and leadership development assignments.

  • We excel at proactively and strategically engaging top 10% of candidates in our search strategy.
  • We are dedicated to the entirety of the physician leadership lifecycle and have developed a novel leadership succession model, identified by pediatric chairs nationally to be the gold-standard in pediatric recruitment, retention and development.
  • In partnership with the Child Health Advisory Council, there is not an academic search or leadership development challenge we have not encountered.
