The Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at Phoenix Children’s Hospital is the largest pediatric gastroenterology program in the state of Arizona. We offer comprehensive and compassionate evaluation, diagnostic, treatment and follow-up services for children and families with known or suspected gastroenterology and hepatology conditions. Our services include medical evaluations, nutrition counseling, and diagnostic laboratory testing, imaging, and procedures. Our program serves as the main gastroenterology and hepatology referral for a population of 7 million residents, of whom 1.5 million are in the pediatric age range.

 

This APP position will have responsibility for the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology patient population. The successful provider will have alternating responsibility for patient care in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Inpatient duties include: rounding with the inpatient attending to address daily care, daily EHR documentation, communication with consultants, answering questions from bedside RN’s and pharmacy, coordinating patient discharge, and pager coverage during the day. In addition, the APP will assist with education to the RN’s on the care area floors related to daily care of the GI patient, as well as participate in annual RN education updates. Outpatient duties would include evaluating patients in the clinic setting, managing outpatient prescriptions and home care orders, educating patients and their families on active issues and therapeutic changes, interacting with appropriate consultants, and scheduling appropriate follow up for patients. Participation in focused quality or research projects, in conjunction with the GI attending team, is encouraged.

 

Multiple opportunities exist within our program for specialty interests. We participate in multi-specialty care teams, including the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic, Short Gut Clinic, Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, Fontan Clinic, NASH Clinic, Eosinophilic Esophagitis Clinic, Aerodigestive Clinic, and Feeding Disorders Clinic.

 

Our staff includes 17 physicians, 3 Nurse Practitioners, 7 Dietitians, a GI Psychologist, a GI Pharmacist, a Nurse Specialty Care Coordinator, a Research Coordinator, 15 nurses, 15 medical assistants, and 3 administrative assistants. The clinical activities for the Division includes approximately 2,400 ambulatory visits and 400 multi-specialty inpatient consultations per month. Our Division covers five satellite clinics, as well as the inpatient gastroenterology services at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. In 2022, we will expand inpatient coverage to Mercy Gilbert Hospital to meet the needs of our growing population in the East Valley.

 

Active involvement in resident, fellow, and medical student teaching through affiliated programs is expected. Academic appointments are encouraged through our relationships with University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, Creighton University School of Medicine, and Mayo Clinic School of Medicine.
