Penn State Children’s Hospital
Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine
The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the Penn State Children’s Hospital and the Penn State University College of Medicine is recruiting a Director of the Pediatric Hematology Program with an established record of accomplishment and training/interest in coagulation. Responsibilities will include patient care, clinical research, and teaching with a focus in benign hematology, particularly bleeding and clotting disorders in children. The position will also include participation in pediatric oncology patient care. Candidates must be board certified or eligible in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. Rank is at the Assistant to Full Professor level and commensurate with experience and accomplishments. Opportunities for program development are significant.
The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology currently has 13 full-time and 1 part-time Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologists, and 12 Ph.D. faculty. The Hemophilia Center of Central Pennsylvania follows approximately 450 patients with inherited bleeding disorders in a multidisciplinary clinic with both adult and pediatric providers and there is a State-funded Sickle Cell Program. Over 100 new oncology patients are seen annually, and in addition to hemophilia and sickle cell disease, there are programs in pediatric stem cell transplantation, neuro-oncology, experimental therapeutics, and survivorship. The division has an accredited Pediatric Hem/Onc fellowship program and is an active member of COG, PBMTC, POETIC, and the NMTRC. Opportunities to participate in clinical and translational research are outstanding. Clinical investigation is supported by the Four Diamonds Fund of the Penn State College of Medicine, an NIH-funded CTSI, Pediatric Clinical Trials Office, the Penn State Cancer Institute and the Institute for Personalized Medicine. A new Children’s Hospital which opened in 2013 provides an excellent environment for patient care and clinical research.
