Atlantic Health System is Seeking a Hematologist/Oncologist for a Medical Director, Oncology, Southern Region
Atlantic Health System, one of the largest non-profit healthcare networks in New Jersey, is seeking an experienced Hematologist/Oncologist to join our expanding oncology practice in Bridgewater, New Jersey. This employed role is ideal for an ambitious and skilled specialist with the ability and drive to develop a new practice in a region filled with a large vertically integrated primary care and specialty physician community.
This physician would join a larger medical team consisting 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 oncology specialists coordinate unified comprehensive care, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy, along with supportive care services.
This faculty practice position includes 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 experience and research/teaching roles. There is biostatistical, medical writing and logistical support for investigator-initiated research. 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.
