Job Description

The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is actively seeking a general surgeon at the assistant/associate professor level. The Assistant/Associate Professor will function in a clinical role in the collaborative management of patients with malignancy requiring elective general surgical consultations as well as patients with acute surgical conditions. The position may involve a collaborative clinical research program in health services/outcomes research in General, Acute and Palliative Surgical Oncology within the Department. The position is part of a strategic effort by the Division of Surgical Oncology to develop an Acute Care Surgery Service within a major freestanding cancer center, a novel endeavor and one of the first such programs in the country. Applicants with both basic laparoscopic skills as well as advanced laparoscopic hernia repair skills are preferred. Each year more than 60,000 patients turn to us for treatment and M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has been ranked as one of the top two hospitals in cancer care every year since U.S. News & World Report began its annual “Best Hospitals” survey in 1990.
