The Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Rush University Medical Center, is seeking a full time Craniofacial Orthodontist for its Craniofacial Center.
Candidates must be board certified/board eligible in Orthodontics and eligible for dental and orthodontic licensure in Illinois. Preference will be given to those who have completed/are completing a Craniofacial Orthodontic fellowship and have experience with special needs, pediatric, cleft and craniofacial patients. Previous experience working within a multidisciplinary team is highly desirable. The predominant criteria for appointment are: excellence in clinical care and patient satisfaction, a major commitment to research, teaching and institutional service. Candidates should be eligible for a faculty appointment at the Assistant Professor level or above.
This position provides a unique opportunity to further gain exposure in the field with an experienced Orthodontist, prior to taking over the Orthodontic practice at the Rush Craniofacial Center. The Center was established in 1999 and consists of a multidisciplinary team of professionals caring for children, adolescents and adults with congenital and acquired craniofacial anomalies. The newly-renovated center has cutting edge technology for patient care including CBCT scanner and 3D photography. The team is approved by the Commission of Accreditation of Teams from the American Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association (ACPA). All core team members are members of ACPA. The Center has collected long-term clinical data from treated patients that are available for clinical studies and research. The extremely close collaboration between the Orthodontist and craniofacial surgeons has led to the development of new surgical/orthodontic treatment approaches for patients with craniofacial conditions.
