We’re seeking a collaborative, dedicated Board Certified/Board Eligible Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Physician for a unique opportunity: a joint effort between Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Medicine and Cure 4 The Kids Foundation (C4K), Nevada’s only outpatient children’s cancer center, ranked fourth in the 2021 Best Nonprofits to Work For and the only Nevada organization to make the national list this year. This position has been created specifically for the Roseman Childhood Cancer Survivors’ Center (RCCS) at C4K on the Summerlin, Nevada, campus of Roseman University, located just 20 minutes from Las Vegas.
The physician will work hand in hand as a member of the multispecialty medical team at C4K to provide specialized primary care services to children, adolescents and young adult patients transitioning from the pediatric C4K oncology-hematology program into the community for long-term primary care. This physician will work directly with the C4K medical team to successfully transition childhood cancer survivors and young adult hematology patients from C4K into the RCCS practice to ensure continuity of care and provide the type of specialized care and screenings that improve health outcomes of these patient populations.
This is a full-time Roseman University College of Medicine faculty position assigned to RCCS, and it requires working closely with Roseman nursing, pharmacy, dental and medical students, giving the next generation of healthcare professionals a unique primary care practice in which to train and learn about the needs associated with cancer and catastrophic disease survivors. Established in 1999, Roseman University is a nonprofit, private institution of higher learning that has experienced phenomenal growth and is universally recognized as an innovative, transforming force in healthcare education.
Roseman Medical Group serves as the clinical headquarters for the Roseman College of Medicine’s signature curricular program and healthcare delivery model, GENESIS, which was designed to address the social determinants of health in high-risk patient populations. A commitment to household-centered care informed by factors of a patient’s family and household environment represents a key distinction and will be integrated into the care provided at RCCS.
More than 80 percent of children diagnosed with cancer in the United States survive at least five years. However, the therapeutic agents used to treat these cancers and other catastrophic childhood diseases can lead to long-term adverse health effects resulting in increased risk of morbidity, poor health status and premature mortality. RSSC provides opportunities for meaningful research, helping to advance understanding of the special needs of this patient group.
Summerlin offers an exceptional quality of life, an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, a strong local economy, and a low cost of living compared with other major U.S. cities. One of the state’s most attractive communities, Summerlin offers a variety of family-oriented neighborhoods along with world-class cultural institutions, some of the best restaurants in the country, year-round recreational opportunities, and access to a multitude of state and national parks including the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Valley of Fire, and Yosemite. Skiing and snowboarding are an hour’s drive away on Mount Charleston. You’ll also love this perk: Nevada residents pay no state income tax.
This is an exceptional opportunity to bring your passion and expertise to the fight against childhood cancer and enjoy an active lifestyle outside of work.
