The mission of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at Children's Hospital of Richmond (CHoR) at VCU is to serve the Commonwealth of Virginia as a nationally recognized entity of clinical, educational and research excellence. The Division currently has 6.5 clinical faculty FTEs, 3.5 advanced practice providers, nurse coordinator, and psychosocial team. Additionally, the division has an active ACGME approved fellowship program. CHoR is seeking additional faculty (non-tenure eligible) with experience in sickle cell to join in these efforts. Rank will be commensurate with experience.
Candidates must be Board certified or eligible in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. A demonstrated experience working in and fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment, or commitment to do so, as a faculty member at VCU is also required. CHoR physicians enjoy a collegial work environment with a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits plan. Preference will be given to candidates with successful record of research publications, external funding, and Med/Peds trained.
The VCU School of Medicine is the largest medical school in Virginia, and the only academic medical center in Richmond. CHoR is the largest full-service academic pediatric hospital in central Virginia, and part of a multispecialty hospital with 160 beds. Our new Children's Pavilion for outpatient services opened in March 2016.
Richmond is a comfortable metropolitan area of 1.2 million. We are centrally located, close to the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west, the Virginia and Carolina beaches to the east, and just 90 miles south of Washington, DC.
