The Oncology Division of Atlantic Medical Group (AMG) is seeking a full-time Medical Director to lead the Hematology/Oncology program. This position will offer the opportunity to practice clinical oncology and play an active role in building an academic University-level cancer program, active both clinically and in clinical/translational research. 

The program currently employs over 20 fellowship-trained, board-certified hematology-oncology physicians with academic backgrounds, many in specialty-focused practices. They are teamed with over 50 AMG cancer surgeons across a broad range of specialties. The oncology team has research support, infrastructure and resources that are more typical of high-level University programs. The Atlantic Health System (AHS) Cancer Care is the lead affiliate of Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium (AHCC) - the only New Jersey-based National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP), and it is expected that this physician would take a leading role in the administration of this grant. In addition, the AHS Cancer program was awarded a brand-new independent hematology-oncology fellowship training program in 2020; this ACGME accredited program is approved for 2 fellows a year. Finally, AHS Cancer Care is a founding member of the Breakthrough Oncology Accelerator, a unique partnership with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) of Phoenix, Arizona and the business development company Origin Commercial Ventures. Through the Accelerator and its onsite Phase 1 unit, the Breakthrough Treatment Center, AHS Cancer Care physicians and their patients gain access to a broad range of novel therapeutic agents, many available in only a few centers worldwide.

Across AHS, our cancer program sees about 7,000 newly diagnosed cancer cases a year. The busiest and highest acuity cancer program is at Morristown Medical Center, followed by Overlook Medical Center. Between the two of them, they account for 6,000 of the 7,000+ tumor registry analytic cases. Radiation oncology is provided at 5 sites with 9 total linear accelerators, four of which have advanced SBRT/SRS capability.
