A willingness to collaborate across departmental or center boundaries is essential.

The successful applicants will have the following responsibilities:

  • Provide exemplary clinical service and assure that patients cared for by you receive only the highest quality care.
  • Clinical effort will be dependent on academic track, research interests and funding, and divided among the clinics and inpatient facilities at Seattle Children’s Hospital. The location and ratio of inpatient to outpatient clinical work may be adjusted somewhat depending upon service needs.
  • In collaboration with program leaders, contribute to and expand the clinical program and patient services in Oncology.
  • Play a role in the education and training program of the pediatric Hem/Onc/BMT Division, including access to and involvement with medical students, residents, fellows, and occasionally physicians in practice.
