Position: Pediatric Perfusionist
Location: Memphis, TN
The Heart Institute, at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis TN, has an exciting opportunity for a full time Pediatric Perfusionist to join our team of two perfusionists. Ranked nationally as one of best Children’s Hospitals for Cardiology and Heart Surgery by US News & World Report, LeBonheur Children’s performs approximately 200-230 pump cases annually. Under the supervision of the Chief Perfusionist and Cardiovascular surgeons, provides perfusion coverage for all open heart procedures, including heart transplant and Mechanical Circulatory Support.

All three perfusionists share call equally, which provides an excellent work/life balance.
This position requires the candidate to work as a team member and interact in a professional manner with patients and their families. One to three years of experience in pediatrics desired but students with strong pediatric clinical experience will be considered.
