Position Specifics:

  • Performing standardized neurological assessments, as well as administration of validated developmental assessments and screeners.
  • Working collaboratively with neurologists, developmental pediatrician, developmental psychologist, nurse coordinator, social workers, dietitians, parent liaison, medical assistants, clinical therapists (PT/OT/ST), behavioral therapists and other staff.
  • Participation in quality improvement initiatives and clinical research projects based on level of interest and experience.
  • Schedule:  5 days per week with administrative time allotted for charting and other non-clinical activities.
  • Attend annual State Follow-up collaborative meeting (NEON), and participate in continuing education related to neurodevelopmental follow-up of the high-risk NICU graduate/survivor.

Qualifications: Candidates must be board certified in pediatrics and BE/BC in Neonatology or Pediatrics and eligible to secure an unrestricted Texas Medical License.
