The Division of Surgery at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center (BMDACC) is seeking applications for a fellowship-trained, head and neck surgical oncologist - with expertise in microvascular flap reconstruction - to join our rapidly-growing and distinguished Cancer Center faculty. BMDACC is the third partner member of the MD Anderson Cancer Network® and the Southeastern United States’ patient care hub serving the institution’s international program to elevate the quality of cancer care nationally and internationally.

BMDACC brings an unprecedented level of oncology care to Northeast Florida and provides physicians an appealing blend of community focused patient care and the benefit of an academic-oriented model through the clinically-integrated collaboration of BMDACC and Northeast Florida’s most preferred healthcare provider, the Baptist Health System. The recently-opened (2018) 9-story, 330,000 square foot Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center incorporates state-of-the-art design, construction, technology, and art to create a patient-centered facility dedicated solely to providing the full spectrum of oncology care in a healing environment for our patients and their families. 

The selected physician will have the opportunity to join a uniquely specialized, multidisciplinary team integrating the expertise of surgery, radiology, medical and radiation oncology, pathology, rehabilitation, genetic counseling, speech pathology, psychology, dedicated patient care navigators and wellness/survivorship programming.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have completed an accredited fellowship in Head and Neck Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery with Free-Flap Reconstruction;
  • Be certified, or eligible for certification, by the American Board of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery;
  • Be eligible for an unrestricted Florida Medical License;

  • Have the opportunity for Adjunct Appointment at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center commensurate with their clinical and academic achievements;
  • Collaborate in national initiatives and scholarly activities with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and its Department of Head and Neck Surgery; and
  • Influence the future direction of our program and join like-minded faculty committed to our mission of Making Cancer History! 

While all applications will be considered, an early-to-mid career candidate is desired. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
