The University of Arizona Cancer Center (UACC) is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer through patient care, research and education. Our cancer center serves as the research backbone for the Division of Gynecologic Oncology within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our therapeutic clinical trials, as well as many of our correlative studies are supported by the UACC Clinical Trials unit. UACC shared services support other basic and translational research activities.

This is a unique opportunity for a junior or mid-level faculty member in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, given the expertise of the faculty. The High-Risk program is an opportunity for a faculty member who is interested in genetics, risk evaluation and research. There is also an opportunity to significantly contribute to the success of our clinical trials effort. With our senior gynecologic oncologist, who has expertise in minimally invasive surgery and vaginal surgery retiring, there is an opportunity to grow in those surgical areas.

Banner Health and University of Arizona Health Network have come together to form Banner – University Medicine, a health system anchored in Phoenix and Tucson that makes the highest level of care accessible to Arizona residents. At the heart of this merger is academic medicine – research, teaching and patient care. Banner-University Medicine values team building, quality of care and excellence. We also value an individual with a commitment to clinical research. Education of our residents in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology will also be a part of our expectations.
