Position description

About the school:

LEAF Academy is an international boarding high school located in Bratislava, Slovakia. The Academy opened its doors in 2016. The currently serves 100 students and has 30 full-time staffulty (staff and faculty) with plans to grow enrollment every year. 

About the Position:

LEAF Academy is looking for a pediatrician to provide on call advice and limited in person supervision to the health care team at LEAF Academy. 

Since many students have a primary care physician outside of Bratislava and since their parents are not always able to take them home at the first sign of illness, LEAF Academy has a healthcare team to assist students in case of illness. The team consists of one full time emergency nurse, two part time medical students, and a first aid practitioner. The Academy also cooperates with a pediatrician practice in Bratislava to provide primary care for foreign students and students who reside elsewhere in Slovakia. 

The in house health care team responds to students reporting health issues, works with parents to decide whether the student’s health requires them to return home or allows them to remain at the Academy, accompanies students to doctors or hospitals where necessary, and provides basic care to students who are unable to travel home in case of illness. 

Health Team Supervisor’s role:

  • occasional phone consultation of complex or urgent cases with the in house health care team 
  • biweekly or monthly supervision meetings with all team members 
  • periodic review of health care records
  • periodic review of communication with parents
  • annual review of health care team processes and protocols
  • support and guidance for the professional growth of healthcare team members
  • willingness to provide occasional in person visitation or additional ambulatory care a plus
