The Division of Hematology, Oncology and Cell Therapy in the Department of Medicine at Rush University Medical is recruiting an lymphoma physician at the assistant, associate or professor level.  The predominant criteria for all appointments are a major commitment to research, teaching, and patient satisfaction, excellence in clinical care, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service - appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. The successful candidate will possess professional qualifications that include: Hematology or Hematology/Oncology training with board certification, MD or MD/PhD (or equivalent), and have experience in clinical and translational research. 

Our new, state-of-the-art Cancer Center facility in Chicago will serve as a hub for services throughout our health system. Our core programs are supported by multi-disciplinary teams from medical oncology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, research and bioinformatics, clinical operations, and dedicated clinical and support staff, including patient navigators. This structure allows specialists to more easily consult and see patients based on tumor type or molecular and genomic signatures, combining our outstanding multidisciplinary approach with a data infrastructure that supports this patient-centered care. This integration enables us to make a greater commitment to research, dramatically scaling the effectiveness of clinical trials, and enabling translational research that moves bench to bedside, and bedside to bench.

Rush University Medical Center is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Rush is ranked in 8 of 16 categories in U.S. News & World Report's 2016-2017 "America's Best Hospital's" issue, and is one of the two top-ranked hospitals in Illinois overall. Rush was one of four hospitals in the country that the American Hospital Association honored for equity of care in June of 2017. Rush was the first hospital in Illinois serving adults and children to receive Magnet status – the highest honor in nursing – and the first in Illinois to earn a fourth four-year designation. Rush has been ranked among the country's top 100 hospitals — and 15 major teaching hospitals — four times by Truven Health Analytics, a leading provider of health care data and analytics. Rush is located short distances from two other universities, two other medical centers, transportation centers, sports facilities, and residential/shopping neighborhoods.
