Pediatric Ophthalmologist

University of Texas Health McGovern Medical School
Ruiz Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science

UT Health has an excellent opportunity for a fellowship trained pediatric ophthalmologist with interest in ROP to join our multi-specialty group and become an integral part of the faculty in the Ruiz Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, in the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston, Texas. The group has an impressive state of the art facility with an available pediatric capable ASC in the building. In addition to the very busy private practice of the Cizik Eye clinic, there is a 120 bed NICU at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital located across the street. The academic position involves a quality residency training program; an interest in clinical research is desirable.

Candidates must have an M.D., be board eligible in ophthalmology, completed fellowship training in pediatric ophthalmology and be eligible for full medical licensure in Texas. The position is available immediately with salary and rank commensurate with training and experience. We offer excellent benefits and a highly competitive salary.

Houston is the nation’s fourth largest city with a population of over 2 million people, a hub of international businesses and a great place to live and raise a family. The Cizik Eye Clinic/ UT Medical School is located in the Texas Medical Center which is home to 42 medical institutions and is the largest concentration of medical facilities in the world.
