BSW Temple is an academic referral center in central Texas which trains medical students and residents. As of July

starting in 2023.

Primary responsibilities are patient care and teaching. Patient care will occur in Pediatric Dermatology outpatient
clinics within the Dermatology free-standing clinic and shared call coverage for inpatient consultations at McLane
Children’s Hospital. The hospital features 112 patient beds and a 24-hour, level II pediatric emergency department. A
level IV, forty-eight bed Neonatal ICU is located nearby on the main BSW Memorial Hospital campus. Opportunities
to perform basic dermatologic surgery and laser surgery are available.

The position will involve a significant educational component via bedside, formal and informal teaching of learners
including Dermatology residents, rotating Pediatric residents, and medical students. Clinical or educational
scholarship is encouraged.

Requirements

Board certification in Dermatology and Board certification/eligibility in Pediatric Dermatology by the time of
appointment.

The ability to diagnose and manage complex pediatric dermatology outpatients and inpatients including those with
inflammatory, vascular, infectious, pigmentary, genetic, congenital, and acquired diseases is mandatory.

About Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple is a 574-bed multi-specialty teaching hospital with a Level I Trauma
designation. In 2018, the hospital was ranked as one of the top 100 hospitals and one of the top 15 teaching hospitals
in the United States by Thomson Reuters. The hospital has 31 accredited residency and fellowship programs.

About the Community

Temple is regarded as one of the best areas to live and work in Texas and was ranked the sixth most affordable
place to live in the U.S. in 2019. In addition to no state taxes, Temple enjoys a robust economy, and a cost of living
that’s lower than the national average. Served by four independent school districts and nationally recognized Temple
College, the community places a high priority on education. Dubbed the “Wildflower Capital of Texas,” Temple lies
along the famous Texas Wildflower Trail and is the demographic center of the state, with convenient access to major
cities including Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.

This is an excellent opportunity to educate, motivate and mentor future dermatologists, pediatricians, and other
physicians in a pleasant academic setting which will support and appreciate you. Our faculty will become your friends.
The patient population is quite diverse, with opportunities to serve the medically underserved and those from other
cultures. The waiting list for Pediatric Dermatology patients is 4-6 months long, and unmet opportunities abound at
McLane Children’s Hospital, and, for a pediatric dermatologist, a more equitable compensation package than private
equity could offer.
