Columbia University Irving Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (CUIMC/NYPH) has commenced a search for a nationally recognized physician scientist to serve as the next Chair, Department of Radiation Oncology. The Department has undergone considerable change over the past several years and this represents an extraordinary opportunity for an academic leader to advance the Department both clinically and academically.
During the past several years, a significant investment in the facilities and equipment on the CUIMC campus has created a state-of-the-art Radiation Oncology facility and significant additional investments in state-of the art equipment are planned. An excellent group of young faculty, are supported by a talented staff, who complement an extraordinary group of fundamental Radiation Biology researchers within the University’s Center for Radiological Research. Importantly, the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, of which the Department of Radiation Oncology is a critical component, is expanding rapidly and new faculty focused on both solid and hematologic malignancies are enhancing the service of Hematology/Oncology as well as Surgical Oncology.
The practice of radiation oncology at CUIMC/NYPH continues to advance. NYPH's investment (~$100MM) in technology and infrastructure combined with the Vagelos College of Physician and Surgeons' investment in faculty recruitments allow patients to receive treatment more comfortably and with better results than ever before.
Reporting jointly to the EVP/ Dean, and to the CEO of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the Chair will be expected to expand the Department's multidisciplinary sub-specialty- based clinical programs; foster collaborative research efforts between the Department 's faculty and the many Columbia investigators in related areas; and explore outreach opportunities well beyond the Washington Heights community that will serve the region and increase the potential for clinical and translational research.
The Chair leads from the understanding that the enterprises of healthcare and academic medicine require system thinking and decision making that are in the best interest of the institution.
