Atlantic Health System is Seeking Specialty Hematologist/Oncologist for a Great Opportunity in Northern New Jersey
Atlantic Health System, one of the largest non-profit healthcare networks in New Jersey, is seeking specialty-focused Medical Oncologists to join our expanding oncology practices in Morristown and Summit, NJ. These employed roles are ideal for ambitious and skilled specialists to join busy medical oncology practices at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center.
The medical team consists of a dynamic group of board-certified cancer specialists who have advanced medical training in treating cancer, and share a vision of providing patient-focused, multidisciplinary, superlative cancer care. Our team of oncologists and hematologists work with other specialists to coordinate unified comprehensive care, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, along with supportive care services.
These are academic oriented fully employed positions, not generalist practices in typical community settings. Successful candidates will have specialty focus in an area of cancer care, particularly GI (gastrointestinal), GU (genitourinary), sarcoma/soft tissue or hematologic malignancies, and a desire to actively participate in clinical care, clinical/translational research, and resident/fellow education.
With over 100 clinical trials open for cancer patients, Atlantic Health System (AHS) Cancer Care has an extensive research focus, beyond what is typically seen in a community institution. Its research team leads the Breakthrough Oncology Accelerator, a unique partnership with researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) in Phoenix, Arizona. This collaboration provides patients and physicians access to cutting edge clinical cancer research, exploring such areas as precision oncology, immunotherapy, gene therapy, and cellular therapy (including CAR-T and tumor infiltrating lymphocyte) clinical trials. The Accelerator operates a dedicated Phase 1 (developmental therapeutics) research and infusion center at Morristown Medical Center, adjacent to the research pharmacy and complete with infusion chairs, laboratory and pathology services.
In addition, Atlantic Health System is the lead site for the Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium Community Oncology Research Program, one of only 32 National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) sites in the United States. This six-hospital consortium provides access to all NCI clinical trials, including several available only through the NCORP program and focused on CCDR (cancer care delivery research).
Successful candidates will have academic appointment opportunities with Jefferson Medical School, Rutgers University and Translational Genomics Research Institute, depending on their specialty focus and research/teaching roles. There is biostatistical, medical writing and logistical support for investigator-initiated research, from chart reviews through complex Phase 1 investigations. Research support is available through dedicated internal philanthropic funding as well as external research grant applications.
AHS Cancer Care provides teaching and educational opportunities for its faculty. Its ACGME-approved combined hematology oncology fellowship program gets well over 350 applicants per year. The fellowship training includes some unique opportunities available through TGen and its laboratories. There are several other training programs at Morristown and Overlook Medical Centers, including residencies in internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, radiology, and others. Through regional affiliations, medical students rotate on the clinical services. The Cancer Care program also organizes several well-attended CME events annually: Post-ASCO, Post-ASH, Post-San Antonio Breast Cancer, GI. Melanoma, Head and neck, and others.
AHS Cancer Care offers unparalleled cancer specialists, clinical trials, innovative technology and medical treatments, and caring support services for thousands of cancer patients a year in New Jersey. Our expansive network includes the flagship Carol G. Simon Cancer Centers at Morristown and Overlook Medical Centers, where these physicians would be primarily based. The cancer care program also includes numerous fellowship trained oncology physicians specializing in radiation oncology, general surgical oncology, thoracic surgery, breast surgery, gynecologic oncology, head and neck surgery and orthopaedic oncology, all serving as primary referral sources to the busy hematology/oncology practices. Atlantic Medical Group, the Atlantic Health System faculty practice, consists of over 900 providers sharing a common vision.
