The WVU Cancer Institute is one of the country's premier cancer treatment centers. Multidisciplinary medical teams use the latest cancer therapies, sophisticated technologies, and patient driven research to deliver the best possible treatment in state-of-the-art facilities operated by WVU Medicine. We offer treatment to those in West Virginia as well as patients from five border states. We have a very active clinical trial program, pharmaceutical studies, and emerging statewide WV Clinical Trials Network. In addition, WVU Cancer Institute has recently added several regional cancer treatment sites with continued planning efforts to add additional sites in the next 1-2 years.
We seek applicants who hold a MD or DO degree (foreign educational equivalent accepted), who are board eligible/certified in neuro-oncology, and eligible to obtain an unrestricted West Virginia license at the time of appointment. In addition to providing excellent patient care, the successful candidate will be actively involved in teaching medical students and neurology and neurosurgery residents.
