Seeking Hematopathologist for Arkansas’ only Academic Medical Center
The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Department of Pathology is seeking a full-time hematopathologist to join a diverse 50-member faculty that includes 9 hematopathologists. The departmental faculty enjoy a collaborative environment with mutual support and respect across all divisions as well as well-staffed state-of-the-art laboratories, an excellent variety of case materials, and robust research programs.
The Hematopathology division supports the clinical and academic mission of the Medical Center, including the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, which provides extensive opportunities for clinical and translational research. The division faculty works closely with clinical faculty members to support active bone marrow transplant programs for a variety of hematopoietic neoplasms and support the internationally recognized UAMS Myeloma Center. UAMS has a strong affiliation with Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH), and division faculty rotate to provide pediatric clinical service. Along with first-class facilities including 12-color flow cytometry, coagulation, in-house molecular and cytogenetic laboratories, the UAMS Pathology Laboratories are accredited by the CAP, AABB, and ASHI.
The UAMS Pathology Faculty are strongly committed to undergraduate and graduate medical education. The pathology residency program boasts a 100% board pass rate and the subspecialty fellowship programs include one accredited hematopathology fellowship position. Faculty members also participate broadly in both departmental/institutional committees as well as tumor boards at both UAMS and ACH.
UAMS is Arkansas’ only academic medical center and is located in the capitol city of Little Rock. With a metro area population of 700,000, Little Rock has the amenities of a major metropolitan area. The downtown River Market, South Main and Argenta (North Little Rock) areas provide a walking district for dining, shopping, sports, museums, libraries, night life, concerts, festivals and a host of other activities. The city is large enough to be culturally diverse and small enough to encourage a feeling of community. Arkansas residents enjoy a favorable cost of living and have access to a wide variety of outdoor activities, including biking, boating, camping, canoeing, hiking, rafting and swimming.
Candidates should have an MD/DO or equivalent and be board certified/eligible for Hematopathology. Academic rank, track, and salary will be commensurate with experience. Multiple promotion pathways are available to align with a variety of career pathways. Eligibility for licensure to practice medicine in Arkansas is required.
