Tenet Healthcare is actively seeking a board certified Child Abuse Pediatrician to join the well-established Department of Pediatrics at DMC Childrens Hospital of Michigan (CHM) in Detroit. Providers will develop protocols and train hospital physicians and other community professionals on how to identify and/or report suspected cases of child abuse. Other responsibilities include interpreting medical information for the legal system and courts when needed, demonstrating leadership for the hospital in meeting needs of children and families affected by child maltreatment, and collaborating with other subspecialties on cases suspicious for child maltreatment.
