Additional Information

Maternal Fetal Medicine Physician – Children’s Mercy’s Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center

Children’s Mercy’s Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center
is a state-of-the-art prenatal diagnosis facility, located in one of only a handful of children’s hospitals in the nation – and the first in the Midwest.  The Center provides general MFM services for the region, but is also specifically focused on a comprehensive, integrated medical model for managing pregnancies complicated by complex fetal malformations. This role has good alignment for those with maternal interests within MFM.  The Center is seeking an additional maternal fetal medicine physician to join the current five (5) member MFM team.  The Center also provides an array of fetal interventional services including fetoscopic procedures and fetal meningomyelocele repair.  The MFM department also provides clinical services at other hospitals including University Health - Truman Medical Center, Advent Health – Shawnee Mission Hospital (busiest Labor & Delivery hospital in the KC Metro!) and Olathe Medical Center.  Physicians have academic appointments with The University of Missouri-Kansas City. Both Children’s Mercy and University Health - Truman Medical Center are teaching hospitals and medical students, OB/Gyn residents and/or MFM fellows participate in most clinical services.
We provide time for non-clinical activity and encourage basic and/or clinical research. Successful candidates will have completed an MFM fellowship, obtain and/or maintain board certification in MFM, and be eligible for licensure in Missouri and Kansas.  Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with experience. The successful applicant must share our unwavering commitment to excellence, integrity, collegiality, antiracism, and respect for inclusion of individuals with diverse backgrounds.”
