The Division of Behavioral Medicine & Clinical Psychology (BMCP) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), in partnership with the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute, is developing a comprehensive psychosocial clinical and research program for children and adolescents with cancer and blood diseases from diagnosis through long-term survivorship.
We invite applications for 6 new clinical psychology faculty positions as well as a Director of Psychosocial Clinical Services to lead the program.
Applicants for the Director of Clinical Service should hold current appointments at the Associate Professor or higher and will ideally have at least 5 years’ experience with the development, implementation, and management of clinical services in an oncology program. The Director will oversee all members of the psychosocial team, including psychologists and social workers. This position will be expected to engage in clinical service, but will have dedicated time for administrative duties of overseeing the clinical program and opportunities for collaborative research.
For the 6 clinical positions, we invite applications at all faculty levels with clinical experience in one or more oncology populations, including postdoctoral training. These positions will work with children and adolescents in our leukemia/lymphoma, solid tumor, bone marrow transplant, hematology, and survivorship programs.
All positions come with faculty appointment in the clinical track. Opportunities exist for collaborative research with other faculty and data collection in the context of clinical care.
CCHMC ranks third in the nation among all Honor Roll hospitals in U.S. News and World Report's 2011 Best Children's Hospitals ranking and second among all U.S. pediatric institutions in NIH funding. It is internationally recognized for improving child health and transforming delivery of care through fully integrated research, education and innovation.
The Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute (CBDI) was established in 2009 to align clinical care and research programs and to speed the transfer of new knowledge from the laboratory to the bedside; CBDI now comprises 65 faculty in three clinical divisions and one basic research division, many of them nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their fields, and more than 800 clinical, research, and administrative staff. We are a national and international referral center for high-risk and relapsed cancers, blood diseases, and bone marrow transplantation. In 2011, CBDI had nearly 15,000 outpatient encounters and 20,000 inpatient-days. The cancer program sees more than 300 new patients (newly diagnosed and relapsed referrals) annually, and the BMT program performs more than 100 transplants annually, making us one of the largest and most experienced pediatric cancer and BMT programs in the nation.
In this significant expansion of our psychosocial services program, we aspire to set a new standard for psychosocial clinical care and research for children and adolescents with cancer and blood diseases.
