Pediatric Search Partners has been engaged to identify a Division Chief of Pediatric Oncology and Medical Director of the Hyundai Cancer Institute to lead the team of 12 Pediatric Oncologists at CHOC Children’s Hyundai Cancer Institute in picturesque Orange, California. CHOC Children’s is recognized as one of the best children’s hospitals in pediatric cancer and five additional pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report in 2018-2019. The Hyundai Cancer Institute specializes in providing patients from infants to young adults the latest pediatric cancer treatments by nationally recognized medical specialists. Physicians and staff are dedicated not just to treating cancer, but also the needs of the whole child: emotional, spiritual and physical. This is an incredible opportunity to represent an institution leading cutting-edge genomic research to better understand cancer in children and teens and increase the cure rate for pediatric cancer. Specialized treatment programs are offered for bone and soft tissue sarcoma, solid tumor histiocytosis, neuro-oncology, adolescent and young adult cancers, lymphoma, leukemia, recurrent and refractory cancers, blood and marrow transplant and after-cancer survivorship.
As Division Chief and Medical Director of the Hyundai Cancer Institute, you will lead one of the few hospitals in the Southwestern United States that offers Phase 1 clinical trials through the Children’s Oncology Group. CHOC also offers a one-of-a-kind dedicated adolescent and young adult cancer treatment program. The hospital’s blood marrow transplant program is the only pediatric BMT program in Orange County.
The ideal candidate will be a leader in the field of pediatric oncology with the vision, drive and passion for growing a program that offers exceptional opportunity and resources. The Division Chief will have the flexibility of both administrative and clinical time to pursue the priorities, vision and goals set forth by the organization and the Institute. The successful candidate will have an academic appointment commensurate with experience with the University of California Irvine School of Medicine. CHOC Children’s is also seeking to expand its pediatric oncology program to surrounding communities, so this an excellent opportunity to lead the growth of a nationally recognized pediatric cancer team with young and entrepreneurial physicians working on innovative and cutting-edge treatment and therapies in the field of cancer.
CHOC Children’s is proud to have been named to The Leapfrog Group’s 2016 Top Children’s Hospitals list for safety and quality, is among only 7 percent of hospitals awarded Magnet designation for nursing excellence and has been recognized by Press Ganey for excellence in physician engagement with families.
One of California’s most sought-after areas, Orange County is situated between San Diego and Los Angeles, includes 45 miles of gorgeous coastline, and is home to such iconic beach communities as Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach and Dana Point.

The weather is picture-perfect with an average of 278 days of sunshine annually. Families will appreciate the area’s top-notch schools and friendly and safe neighborhoods.
