Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we strive to provide unsurpassed medical care to affected children and their families.
The Division also provides a highly interactive environment where the clinical faculty member will have ample opportunities to participate in exciting educational and research initiatives centered around clinical genomics, gene discovery and cancer surveillance in collaboration with investigators from the Departments of Computational Biology, Pathology, Radiology, Hematology, Epidemiology & Cancer Control and Pharmaceutical Sciences. As an integral member of a team of genetic counselors, nurse practitioner, numerous physician-scientists including a clinical geneticist, psychologist and ethicist, the faculty member will have the ability to execute cutting edge research in conjunction with comprehensive patient care.
The clinical faculty member will experience the benefits of working in an environment where patient care and treatment are prioritized above all else. This is a remarkable opportunity to be part of a collaborative, positive workplace where all employees, regardless of their role, share the same commitment to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve.
