The Department of Pediatrics of Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) faculty based at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio (CHofSA) is searching for a motivated, enthusiastic addition to the Section of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. The successful candidate will be board-certified or –eligible in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and join our existing team of 5 full-time physicians and 3 nurse practitioners, in addition to our multi-disciplinary support staff.
The BCM hematology/oncology team is beginning its fifth year of work at CHofSA. In that short time, the faculty group has expanded, a stand-alone COG membership has been successfully established, the numbers of patients served has steadily grown, and our integration with the BCM pediatric residency program at CHofSA has been solidified. An ACGME-accredited Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship is being established, as is a blood and marrow transplant program.
The potential for research activity is available via numerous local funding sources, in conjunction with the CHofSA Max and Minnie Tomerlin Voelcker Clinical Research Center, which houses core laboratory and other functions. In addition, collaborations with the Texas Children’s Cancer Center have been established, with the potential for expansion of that activity in the future.
The San Antonio pediatric H/O faculty are employed by BCM and are also members of the Department of Pediatrics based in Houston, as part of the partnership that was formed in 2013 between BCM, Children’s Hospital of San Antonio/CHRISTUS Health, and Texas Children’s Hospital. Although the faculty partnership is new, CHofSA and CHRISTUS Health have been serving the ever-expanding population of central and south Texas for nearly 60 years. CHofSA is now completing an extensive physical transformation of the central downtown campus, and beginning to develop satellite outreach to the greater San Antonio area and beyond.
Interested candidates should contact Tim Griffin MD, Howard A Britton Endowed Chair in Pediatric Hematology Oncology and Section Chief, Children’s Hospital of San Antonio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
