The Chadwick Center at RCHSD is one of the largest hospital-based child advocacy and trauma treatment centers in the nation, with a staff of 75 professionals (medicine, social work, psychology, psychiatry, child development, nursing, education, technology). The Chadwick Center provides child abuse medical services for San Diego, Imperial, and southern Riverside counties, a region with over 3 million people. Child abuse pediatricians oversee a 24/7 response to acute child/adolescent sexual assault and provide continual telephone availability to the community to triage and manage medical intervention for maltreatment issues.

The Division Chief will report to the Chair of the Department and work closely with the other Division Chiefs and Vice Chairs in the Department of Pediatrics. The Division Chief will oversee the clinical, research, and educational activities of the Division, lead recruiting efforts, and ensure career mentoring for all faculty and fellows in the Division. The Division Chief also will be expected to support the mission of delivering high-quality care, teaching, and scholarly activities, while promoting an environment that supports diversity, equity, and inclusivity among faculty, students, and staff.
