The Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Florida is seeking applicants who wish to pursue a career in Pediatric Otolaryngology. We are excited to announce two faculty positions: A Pediatric Otolaryngologist for our main campus in Gainesville, and either a Pediatric Otolaryngologist or a General Otolaryngologist with strong interest in Pediatric Otolaryngology in Pensacola, Florida.
Gainesville, Florida: The division currently consists of two fellowship-trained Pediatric Otolaryngologists, within our growing department of 16 Faculty members. The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology is growing, and current practice locations include UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and the UF Health Children’s Surgical Center. In addition, work has begun on the construction of a new, freestanding Otolaryngology clinic facility.
The UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital—recently ranked in multiple pediatric subspecialties in the 2018-2019 US News and World Report rankings—consists of 200+ inpatient beds, including a 24-bed PICU, 23-bed Pediatric Cardiac ICU, 68-bed NICU, and a Level I pediatric trauma center and Emergency Department. A fellowship in Pediatric Otolaryngology is strongly encouraged. Applicants should also be board certified or board eligible and licensed (or eligible) to practice in Florida.
Gainesville is a charming city and home to the University of Florida. The area is known for its natural beauty, with many springs, lakes and rivers. The mild climate encourages outdoor activities and residents enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, bicycling and camping. Culturally, the city is enriched by the influence of the university. The population of Gainesville is approximately 111,000 with a surrounding population of 250,000. We have a diverse culture, excellent public schools, low cost of living and no state income tax. For the past 8 years, Gainesville has been voted among the Top 12 “Most Livable Cities in the Nation” by Money Magazine.
