The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine’s (UCCOM) Division of Hematology and Oncology and the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center (UCCC) are seeking an outstanding leadership candidate for the Director of Breast Oncology.

The Breast Cancer Center Director will oversee the breadth of programmatic activities and be expected to develop a vision and implement a strategy to advance the clinical footprint of the breast service, while effectively developing quality research through collaboration with UCs basic science resources and existing research platforms. The Director will report to the Division Chief of Hematology Oncology as well as UC Cancer Center medical leaders and administration.

Opportunity Highlights:
