Renown Health is recruiting motivated, passionate BC/BE Hematology/Oncology Staff physicians in addition to our Section Chief Medical Oncology position to join our rapidly growing and expanding academic Cancer Center.  Candidates should be interested in participating in clinical and/or translational research.  Renown’s affiliation with the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, provides the right opportunity to participate in educating the next generation of physicians and contribute to knowledge generation.  In addition, Renown Health collaborates with the Desert Research Institute (DRI) in the largest community-based population health based study in the world (The Healthy Nevada Project).  The DRI also houses our region’s only research laboratory focused on cancer susceptibility and the molecular genetics of cancer.  Finally, we are affiliated with Stanford Healthcare for quaternary care.

Nevada is only one of seven states that has no personal income tax. More importantly, our area holds a favorable quality of life with ample outdoor activities for all four seasons of the year. With over 300 days of sunshine annually, it’s easy to understand why so many people choose to live, explore and play in the natural beauty of our region. Nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada, Reno is a quick 45-minute drive to Lake Tahoe, Sacramento (2 hours), Napa Valley (3 hours) or San Francisco (4 hours).
