Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) and New York-Presbyterian are seeking a dynamic and visionary leader to serve as Chief for the Division of Hematology and Oncology. He/She will also have the opportunity to assume a leadership position within the Meyer Cancer Center.

The Division of Hematology and Oncology serves as the academic home for internal medicine  subspecialists committed to careers as physician scholars and dedicated to offering expert care and the latest treatment modalities for adult patients with cancer and non-malignant hematologic disorders while advancing knowledge through active involvement in biomedical research. Faculty of the Division, working closely with colleagues in the Meyer Cancer Center and the Department of Medicine’s other divisions, have grown and developed the Division to become a respected regional referral center for a broad range of oncologic and hematologic disorders.

The Chief will be responsible for full program development and oversight, including clinical, educational and research program activities of the Division. Mentoring of junior faculty and fellows, support of quality improvement initiatives and continued development of clinical translational research related to hematology and oncology are notable priorities.

Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) seeks a physician of unique vision, enthusiasm and experience for this Division Chief position. The ideal candidate for the leadership role is a physician-scientist with experience in the application of new knowledge to the practice of clinical medicine and a track record of extramurally funded research. He/She will be a nationally respected academic oncologist or hematologist with demonstrated accomplishments in clinical and/or translational research in malignant hematology and/or medical oncology. Because the next Chief will be the leader of a very large academic and clinical enterprise, a candidate’s experience in leading significant programs is critically important. The Chief must exhibit the qualities required to be a successful leader in a complex, matrixed environment, including the ability to work collaboratively across the various organizations, and effectively promote the Division with community providers and leaders, donors, and hospital executives.
