Seeking Medical Director for Radiation Medicine Section of Cancer Center
Dignity Health St. Joseph’s seeks to hire a full-time Radiation Oncologist to be the Medical Director of the St. Joseph’s Radiation Medicine Service for the Cancer Center. In 2013, Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center (SJHMC) entered into an affiliation with The University of Arizona Cancer Center (UA), an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. The goal of the affiliation is to expand SJHMC’s clinical oncology services and to bring UA’s oncology research to Phoenix, AZ. The Medical Director for the Cancer Center Section of Radiation Medicine will be a full-time employee of Dignity Health and eligible to apply for a non-tenured faculty appointment to the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.
Radiation medicine services are provided on both the St. Joseph’s Medical campus location and in the new 5-story ambulatory cancer center on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus (less than 2 miles south of St. Joseph’s). This Medical Director will work in collaboration with the physician leader of the Barrow Neurological Institute Neuro-Oncology Radiation program to ensure the safe, efficient and effective use of resources. The Medical Director will build the clinical practice at both locations and any satellite locations and ensure the growth of the radiation oncology research program. The Medical Director will ensure regular and effective participation by the Radiation Oncologists with the multi-disciplinary disease-specific teams and Tumor Boards.
