Our recruited physicians will have the opportunity to work in a new, 200,000 square foot state of the art cancer institute located in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Parkview Packnett Family Cancer Institute enhances clinical care by incorporating a multidisciplinary approach to lung & head neck cancer care involving subspecialized medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgery, interventional pulmonology, and other specialties. We also have a robust research infrastructure and teaching opportunities.

The cancer institute serves as a tertiary care referral center, and there is opportunity for faculty involvement with IU school of medicine and the residency program as well if there is interest by the physician.

The clinical model involves working in multi-specialty tumor site teams out of disease focused cancer clinics in our state of the art institute, and predominantly outpatient practice with limited call at a single tertiary hospital. An excellent blend of compensation, sub specialization and lifestyle.

Our physician-led institute, serving northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio population, empowers our patients and their families to get multi-disciplinary treatment they desire in one single location.
