Accredited Adult Congenital Heart Center - Tampa Bay Florida
Adult Congenital Heart Disease Cardiologist
The Tampa Bay Adult Congenital Heart Center seeks to add a cardiologist specializing in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). In addition to board certification in ACHD, the successful candidate will also need to maintain board certification in pediatric cardiology or adult cardiovascular diseases.
The Tampa Bay Adult Congenital Heart Center is accredited by the Adult Congenital Heart Association as a comprehensive adult congenital heart disease center. The center represents a 25-year collaboration between the following component stakeholders:
Pediatric Cardiology Associates (affiliate of Pediatrix Medical Group). A group of 14 cardiologists including two ACHD cardiologists with offices throughout the Tampa Bay metropolitan area. Pediatrix will employ the newly recruited ACHD cardiologist. Pediatric Cardiology Associates also employs 3 advanced practice nurses with one serving the role of ACHD transition clinic coordinator.
Florida Medical Clinic (independent medical group). This organization employs the third physician member of TBACH and offers Adult General Cardiology services in collaboration with our ACHD Center. This experienced Adult General Cardiologist is also board certified in ACHD.
St. Joseph's Hospital (center's primary inpatient diagnosis and treatment venue). The hospital employs 2 full-time congenital heart surgeons, a dedicated congenital cardiac intensive care unit physician and advance practice nursing staff, 3 advanced practice nurses with one serving the role of primary ACHD advance practice nurse coordinator, and supporting all ACHD clinical services including social work and case management.
Clinical responsibilities will include caring for ACHD patients in the outpatient and inpatient settings. An ACHD cardiologist who is board-certified in pediatric cardiology will also rotate on the general pediatric cardiology evening and weekend on-call schedule with 13 other pediatric cardiologists. An ACHD cardiologist who is board-certified in adult cardiovascular diseases will have the opportunity to care for adults with genetic cardiovascular diseases and aortopathy syndromes (e.g., hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, bicuspid aortic valve, Marfan syndrome and related conditions) who have been transitioned out of the pediatric cardiology clinic.
Teaching responsibilities may include participation in the didactic lectures or workshops for the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine's fellows in adult cardiovascular medicine, maternal-fetal medicine fellows, residents in pediatrics, medical students, and advance practice nursing students.
