To help preserve and improve the health of our patients, their families and our employees, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has a tobacco-free hiring policy. This policy applies to all candidates for employment (other than those with regularly scheduled hours in New Jersey) for all positions, including those covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Job applicants who apply after July 1, 2014 will be expected to sign an attestation stating they’ve been free of nicotine or tobacco products in any form for the prior thirty (30) days. They will also undergo a cotinine test as a part of the Occupational Health pre-placement drug screen administered after the offer of employment has been accepted but before the first day of hire.
Exemptions: Attending physicians (excluding CHOP physicians in the Care Network), psychologists, principal investigators and/or Penn-based faculty are exempt from this process to better align with our colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
Our three-year fellowship seeks physicians who will have completed three years of training in an accredited residency program in Pediatrics or Emergency Medicine in order to sit for the American Board of Pediatrics or American Board of Emergency Medicine certifying examinations. Our fellowship program participates in the ERAS universal application process. Please visit their Web site at www.aamc.org/eras for an application.
The deadline for completed applications is August 31. The fellowship directors review completed applications. Selected candidates are then invited to interview during the months of September and October.
Our fellowship program participates in the NRMP. You may contact the NRMP at http://www.nrmp.org.
