Ochsner Health is in search of a clinical exercise physiologist within the Pediatric Cardiology division at our Main Campus on Jefferson Hwy in New Orleans, Louisiana. The primary duty will be comprehensive cardiopulmonary exercise testing in children and adults with congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, arrhythmia syndromes, heart transplant recipients, and symptoms with exercise. Additional tasks may include assisting with cardiac rehabilitation in children and participation in academic studies. We seek those with a master’s degree in exercise science or physiology, who have or are eligible for the certification as a Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist (R.C.E.P.). Experience with both cardiopulmonary exercise testing and working with the pediatric population is preferred. However, various backgrounds in exercise physiology and adult cardiology experience would also be strongly considered, including those who have recently completed or are soon anticipating completion of their graduate training. An enthusiasm towards creatively caring for the unique and challenging patients of children and adults with congenital heart disease as a member of the comprehensive care team is paramount.
Ochsner Health is ranked the #1 children’s hospital in Louisiana by U.S. News & World Report and is the only pediatric heart transplant center in the state. Our exercise physiology laboratory is fully outfitted with state-of-the-art cardiopulmonary exercise testing equipment with treadmill and cycle ergometry. This position is an opportunity to join our growing group of subspecialists and advance the care of the children of Louisiana on our exercise physiology and sports cardiology team.
