Neuro-oncologist Opportunity

Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute

Hartford HealthCare, where 1 in 3 Connecticut residents receive their healthcare, invites applications from neuro-oncologists to join our Cancer Institute and the Ayer Neurosciences Institute to advance our neuro-oncology clinical and research programs. 

At Hartford HealthCare, our institute model combines an emphasis on compassionate, humanistic patient care with a dedication to clinical research and innovative program development within oncology and neurology.  The Cancer Institute includes 40 medical oncologists and 17 radiation oncologists with a research program that includes a phase 1 unit for early drug development studies.  The Ayer Neurosciences Institute comprises more than 220 neurology, neurosurgery and other providers in 22 sub-specialties. System wide we see over 100 primary brain cancers and over 100 spinal and peripheral neurologic tumors annually.  In 2014, Hartford HealthCare and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) formed the MSK Cancer Alliance through which our cancer specialists collaborate with MSK for educational conferences and symposiums, tumor boards and research studies. HHC is also an active member of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology and NRG Oncology and has access to clinical trials offered by these groups

One position is available to serve as the Medical Director of the neuro-oncology team, comprised of 2 APRN’s, one RN, one Nurse Navigator, 2 Medical Assistants, and a dedicated neuro-oncology research nurse.  An additional neuro-oncology position is open to further support clinical care, research and teaching for neurology and oncology trainees. The Medical Director will help lead the multidisciplinary weekly tumor board meeting and the monthly brain tumor disease management meetings as well as participate in the education of rotating University of Connecticut residents and clinical fellows.  The position is for a mixture of primarily outpatient duties and occasional inpatient consultations.  

Physicians would be clinically based at one hospital but actively engaged system-wide in quality, research and program development through our well established disease management teams and medical, radiation and surgical councils that together ensure one system standard and the promise to deliver the highest quality patient care throughout Hartford HealthCare.

About Hartford HealthCare:

The Hartford HealthCare network employs over 2,500 providers in over 400 practice locations throughout Connecticut, seven acute care hospitals including one of the largest academic and surgical hospitals in the northeast, thriving community teaching hospitals, and one of the largest, physician-led, multi-specialty medical groups in New England.

This means MORE OPTIONS to propel careers to new heights and all within a deeply embedded culture of inclusion, innovation, and focus on the highest quality of care. We are teachers, researchers, leaders and, most of all, caregivers.
