Deputy Director and Chief, Division of Solid Tumor Medical Oncology

The Miami Cancer Institute (MCI), a 501c3 corporation, seeks applications and nominations for the position of Deputy Director and Chief, Division of Solid Tumor Medical Oncology. MCI is part of Baptist Health South Florida, a $2.5bn not-for-profit organization and the region’s leading health system.

MCI is in a period of rapid and dynamic expansion, well-underway in its transformation from a sophisticated community oncology setting to a “next-generation” cancer center that combines the best of academic and community cancer care. Under the leadership of Founding CEO Michael Zinner, MD, (formerly long-term Chief of Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Clinical Director of the Dana-Farber / Brigham and Women’s Cancer Institute) and Executive Deputy Director and CMO Leonard Kalman, MD (a top community medical oncology leader in South Florida), MCI has recruited a significant number of nationally and internationally renowned leaders in clinical care and clinical research.

In 2017, MCI opened a world-class 445k sq. ft., $450m outpatient cancer facility, alongside a state-of-the-art 140,000 sq. ft. research building, which houses South Florida’s only proton therapy center, a clinical trials unit (including Phase 1) and its Center for Genomic Medicine.

MCI entered the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Alliance in 2017. This deep and functional alliance gives MCI’s patients and physicians access to much of MSKCC’s world-leading clinical trials portfolio and seeks to bring the most current knowledge and advanced cancer care into the community setting. In addition, MCI is also developing education and training programs with the rapidly expanding Florida International University College of Medicine (FIUCoM).

The Deputy Director and Chief, Division of Solid Tumor Medical Oncology will join a prestigious leadership team and will expand and develop a high-caliber Division (currently comprised of over 20 sub-specialized medical oncologists) that encompasses clinical care, clinical trials, and education and training, with the potential to positively impact cancer care across the South Florida as well as in Latin America and the Caribbean. S/he will provide outstanding leadership and mentoring across the division’s clinical, research, and educational efforts, in alignment with the organization’s transformation to a world-class “next-generation” cancer center.

The successful candidate will have strong administrative and executive skills, an outstanding reputation and gravitas as a clinical leader in a solid tumor specialty and a broad understanding of medical oncology, including the latest treatments and trends in cancer care. Candidates will possess at least 7-10 years of leadership experience in a clinical setting, to include experience in an academic environment.
