The Helen F Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute (HFGCCRI) at ChristianaCare located in Newark, Delaware has a full-time opportunity for a BC/BE fellowship trained Hematologist focusing on liquid cancers to join a busy, well-established practice of five Hematologists. The group has a specialization in patients diagnosed with blood disorders, thrombosis and blood cancers that include leukemia, Non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. The program is well rooted in the community with a strong referral base and anticipates continued growth in both clinical services and research working out of HFGCCRI. In addition to direct patient care, the hematologists are very integrated in the laboratory services at ChristianaCare with leadership positions overseeing sections such as hematology and transfusion medicine. Although not required, if candidates are interested, there is great growth opportunity in these areas.
