The primary clinical responsibilities associated with the role will be outpatient developmental pediatric consultation at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital as part of multidisciplinary assessment clinical teams (e.g., Infant and Preschool Assessment Service; IPAS and School-Aged Neurodevelopmental Clinic; SNAC, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder; FASD), outpatient developmental pediatric consultation to the Learning and Development Clinic at the East Edmonton Health Clinic, supported by the AHS Mental Health Program, as well medical coverage of the pediatric palliative care team within the Division of Immunology, Hematology, Oncology & Palliative Care (iHOPE).

The successful applicant will join the Division of Developmental Pediatrics, comprised of developmental pediatricians, pediatric rehabilitation medicine specialists, child psychiatrists, psychologists and pediatric nurse practitioners, in providing interdisciplinary care for children with a variety of developmental disabilities. The Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital offers inpatient and outpatient assessment and services for children with cognitive and motor disabilities, including learning disabilities, intellectual disability, ADHD, speech-language disorders, autism, FASD, cerebral palsy, and acquired brain injuries. In a family centered environment, children are treated by a comprehensive team of allied professionals. A group of pediatricians, physiatrists, and developmental pediatricians provide medical coverage for outpatient specialty clinics and a 10 bed tertiary Pediatric Intensive Rehabilitation Inpatient 24 hour care program. As above, clinical service provision will extend to pediatric palliative care within the iHOPE division.

In addition to clinical care, the division is active in teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and has a fully accredited Developmental Pediatrics subspecialty-training program through the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The successful applicant will engage with trainees from this program as well as with General Pediatric residents and elective medical students.
