St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its commitment to performing cutting edge research and providing state of the art clinical services, with the goal of improving outcomes for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer center to be given Comprehensive Cancer Center status by the National Cancer Institute, and in 2017 was named the nation’s number 1 pediatric cancer hospital by US News & World Report. St. Jude was recognized on Glassdoor “2021 Best Places to Work.”
We are recruiting highly motivated individuals, committed to clinical excellence, to join our growing Hospitalist Medicine Program. Under the supervision of the hospitalist medicine program director, the staff physician will attend on the St. Jude chemotherapy service, provide oncology consultations, and treat patients in the inpatient and outpatient acute care setting. In this capacity, team members will work a combination of day, evening, and overnight shifts, and some weekends. As an integral member of the hospitalist team, the staff physician will be responsible for working with the nursing staff, advanced practice practitioners, oncologists, and primary and subspecialty physicians to ensure quality clinical care for St. Jude patients.
Opportunities exist for the candidate to continue existing clinical research, collaborate in quality and patient safety initiatives, and engage in clinical education. The environment provides ample opportunities for teaching and education of trainees (resident and fellow level). Candidates with a previous track record in clinical research will also have opportunity to build upon their previous clinical research experiences, if desired. The staff physician will be housed within the Department of Oncology (unless research interests are more appropriate elsewhere).
St. Jude is located in Memphis, TN. Memphis is a family-friendly metropolitan area recognized for its world-class music, food, and hospitality. Cost of living is one of the biggest attractions; in fact, Money listed Memphis as one of the least expensive cities in which to raise a child. Mild winters and beautiful green spaces are part of the reasons why Forbes recently named Memphis the 4th happiest city in which to work. Relocation assistance is available.
